Do you have an external hard drive of any type?
Did you get any disks at all with the notebook?
Describe your intentions as best you can.
I want to transfer (clone if that's accurate) the OS and data off my hard drive to the SSD.
Got a USB hard drive with 340 GB free - plenty
No disks came with the notebook.
I have 1-2 insulation disks. What I think the SSD kit wants me to do is go ahead and swap the hard drive with the SSD, boot with their CD, with my old hard drive in an insulation pack plugged in a USB port, and apparently will clone my data to the SSD.
