Cloning will need to be done from another desktop PC - something that can plug in your Original Dell C: HDD and the New Dell SSD Drive, then clone the Orig HDD onto the SSD.
Dell’s CONTROL PANEL will have a Recovery Disk option that should be your first operation. This will ‘build’ a DVD (and maybe a CD, too) of the original setup for this Dell unit. Just like you received it, out of the box.
Once those are built, you can remove your original HDD and replace it with the SSD. Boot up to the Recovery DVD (or CD - whichever is #1 in that process - it will tell you to label it) and it will re-load Win and all other software.
This way, you don’t have to worry about partitioning (Cloning will be difficult because you’re going from a Larger-Capacity HDD to a smaller SSD, probably, yes?).
You’ll probably want to build other CD-DVD backups for your data files, by the way, or you can get one of those USB-SATA-IDE connectors to plug in the original HDD after the SSD is loaded and running, and then your Orig HDD can become essentially an external drive. Once I gleaned all the data-files from it, though, I’d reformat it so it wouldn’t be a boot drive. Although it might be nice to leave it, as is, just in case the SSD failed.
Some notebooks’ HDD spaces are slightly larger than some SSDs. We sometimes use small rubber pads similar to
as ‘support padding’. They come in a variety of sizes and different vendors, too, and can be cut to fit.
