Windows 7: Replacing an SSD

Replacing an SSD

I have a 60gb OCZ Agility 3 SSD and want to replace it with a 120GB SSD.

I had my present system built for me by a friend as I am not very computer savvy, but I thought I might do the replacement myself. The only thing that worries me is do I need to tinker around with the BIOS, or should it be automatically found by the BIOS?

I have no worries about installing Windows 7

Many thanks in anticipation

Many thanks Bare Foot Kid.

I have another question! Do I need to align the NEW SSD if I do a fresh install from the Windows 7 disk?

I don't think it's necessary though some may disagree with me, have a look at this one.
