Upgrade 5400RPM drive to SSD


I have recently purchase my H dv7t-6b00

It came with 750GB Sata 5400RPM. I am willing to upgrade it to Seagate Momentus XT 750 GB 7200RPM.

Can someone please tell me how can I do this?

Is it quite simple like I will just create backup disks & then install Seagate Momentus XT 750 GB 7200RPM or SSD in my DV7 & restore data on that SSD/Seagate Momentus XT 750 GB 7200RPM

Or should I go with some cloning software?

Any help is highly appreciated.

Best Regards

  1. You will need
    1.) http://www.easeus.com/product.htm free (preferrably the bootable CD)
    2.) A USB cradle/disk to connect your new drive via usb/esata/firewire to your computer (usb works best in my opinion) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812232002 or similar (just picked this randomly)
    3.) About 6-10 hours of time to a complete drive clone

    Dowload the cd, burn to disk. Restart computer, boot from the cd. Attach the USB cradle/cable to the computer, do a complete OS clone (6-10 hours for bit by bit clone). When that is done powerdown the computer, remove the power cable and battery, remove old HDD and install the new HDD. No reinstalling needed.
  2. If you have another computer, you can install a drive in there for the purposes of making the clone.
