Yes, please. But remember I dont have a MS disk. Just OEM system restore.

special disk to reset to factory settings? That's not what I mean.
Create a "system repair disk" this is how System Repair Disc - Create

Attach the old hdd to be wiped to system. Boot form the CD you created
Answer a few simple questions then you see:

Select Command pormpt
do this Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command
Use the DISKPART method. Clean to delete partitions only. But CLEAN ALL to rewrite everyting. CLEAN ALL is the way to go.

Please be sure to CLEAN ALL the correct disk!

will do.

What surprised me is that Samsung ships Norton Ghost with the drive. Not only did it not see hidden drives (EFI) but Samsung although thye make a great product has fairly poor tech support. As does Sony. Sony is by far the worst I've come across in a long time. THey lie and misrepresent things in their favor constantly.

All bloatware. And most of the time trial versions. And very often not even uninstallable. Just adware....

That's why I always do a clean install

You only want to clone win7 partition, so only partition with letter I should be cloned? If all succeeds you want to delete c: xp64 and i: win7 (old one on hdd)?

How many GB is SSD?

Post screenshot of diskmanagement please
