  1. i would reccomend you use this

    http://www.paragon-software.com/technologies/components/migrate-OS-to-SSD/

    its easy and simple to use i would not recommend other methods if you dont know much about computers as you could permanently damage your PC if not done properly how ever if you are willing to give it a try it has a lot of risks if not done properly

    this tutorial explans the process nicely

    hope i helped
  2. I would just re-install windows to the SSD. That will get you a fresh install and all your programs/data (including the old install) will be waiting on the HDD when your done. Just delete the Windows files on the HDD to get yourself about 20GB back.

    You will need to re-update drivers and such.

    ^if you just reinstall windows on to ur ssd and even if you backup all your registry entries im pretty sure many programs wont work unless you migrate them to the ssd as well and i think hes on a desktop computer and i dont think he got the OEM cd for win 7 with it .... migrating is always easier then reinstalling
