    It is possible, but its generally recommended you just do a fresh install on the SSD.
  2. this is what I used: http://dcfldd.sourceforge.net/
    the command i used was the following:

    "dcfldd if=/dev/sda of=/dev/sdb bs=32M" without the quotes

    "if" is the source, "of" is the destination, "bs" is the block size. for usb 2.0 connections, a block size of 32M seems optimal, if they're both sata, you can possible try 64M or 128M size blocks

    That's all just a bunch of fear mongering. There's nothing wrong with cloning an hd if you do it correctly.
