  1. 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.
  2. thank you i been trying to find out on intel for 3 hrs and newegg for 2hrs and just net for 2 hours what a waste of time i appreaciate the quick reply :na:
  3. 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.
