You can replace the hard drive(add SSD) on your system, and still use the original OEM Windows license. You will have to re-install your programs.

Yes, your OEM version is still valid on this system(as long as you don't replace the motherboard).
Look at the link I provided. There are some useful articles about setting up a system with a SSD.

yup, your fine. Just make sure that your bios is up to date, and when you install the OS dont have any other hard drives connected. Reconnect the Caviar Blue after the OS is installed.
