OS Migration Tags: SSD Solid State Hard Drives Storage Last response: July 13, 2012 4:32 PM in Storage Share kelvin08113 July 13, 2012 3:09:02 PM Hi forumites, good day!~ Assume that I buy a Force Series™ 3 60GB SATA 3 6Gb/s Solid-State Hard Drive and how can I migrate my OS in my HDD to my SSD? Can I do that? If can, do I need to install all the programs again and should I backup my important files? Thank you.

By the way, how to format my Windows 7 64-bit to my SSD and my license can be transferred 2 times. | Report abuse ram1009 July 13, 2012 3:55:22 PM If you don't want to clone you will need to re-install your OS and migrate your data later. This should not constitute an OS transfer. Always backup. | Report abuse SR-71 Blackbird July 13, 2012 3:57:46 PM Clean install is the best option for a windows installation on a SSD.Don't attach other hard drives until windows is installed | Report abuse kelvin08113 July 13, 2012 4:32:05 PM Hi, thank you for replying! ^_^ I will try it if I can buy. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>OS Migration> Related ressources: ForumOS migration , using linux........
