How do I install the SSD and move my OS to it when my C: Drive is 500gb and the SSD is 240GB's won't image to a smaller drive. I have windows 8 upgrade and am running vista. Not sure where to start, don't want to loose my installed programs, some I don't have the disc's for. Help great computer brains!

Solved - you can't. I just installed win 8 on the SSD and it works fine except no DVD drives still working on this one.
