Windows 7: moving system files from HDD to SSD

If you don't want to reinstall then you can indeed move the Bootmgr - Move to C:\ with EasyBCD - Windows 7 Forums making sure at reboot you set the Win7 drive to boot first in BIOS setup.

Then if Win7 is marked System Active in Disk Mgmt, you can delete the System Reserved partition in Disk Mgmt after marking it Inactive Partition - Mark as Inactive , boot the old drive using the one-time BIOS boot menu key, or move trhe data off to wipe the old hard drive with Diskpart Clean Command to get it cleanest then repartition in Disk Mgmt and move the data back on.
