Errmmm…cloning a drive to an SSD is easy-peasy.
Most SSDs come with the appropriate software on a CD…
IÂ´ve just replaced the weeny drive in my laptop by cloning my PC system drive (Win7 + lots of other software) to a new, bigger SSD, and just shoved it in, updated a few drivers (e.g. sound) and it works sweet as!
Used the CD that came with it…Samsung in this case.
