The SSD is hardware compatible. Just reinstall OS on your SSD or clone to SSD with Window 7's system image backup. I recommend you do a fresh installation on an SSD.

While CPU require socket compatibility (so AMD CPU can't go into Intel chipset based mobo), HDD and SSD share the same SATA connection regardless of company.
