Hey there. So I just installed my Samsung 840 and I think it's okay. It wasn't showing up in My Computer but it was in the disk manager so I made a partition on it and formatted it and now it's in My Computer so I presume its working.

Anyway, I'm running Windows 8 off my HDD, it is a version I downloaded from my College as we get a free copy of it.
It isn't an ISO version it's just one that you can click on setup and enter in the cd key and all.
I was wondering how can I go about installing this onto my SSD?

Thanks for any help and if you need to know something please let me know.

Possible that it was just an update? Even Win8 wants to create a DVD for installation.
You can clone your hdd to your ssd using Samsung Data Migration. It should be shipped with your ssd or can be downloaded under
