Replacing HDD with SDD - image vs clean install
I am replacing an HDD with an SDD in my laptop.
I have it partitioned the same way as the HDD except that D: is smaller.
system reserved, C:=system, D:=data-profiles-programs, E: =HP_TOOLS (fat32)
My plan was to image the system reserved, C: and E: partitions.
The HDD is running in ACHI mode.
What I want to know -
When installing W7, does it do something different on a SSD than a HDD such that imaging the HDD to the SDD will make a performance difference???
Can u explain that difference???
I'm using Macrium Reflect to image.

I used Acronis to clone my SATA drive to my new SSD and it's worked perfectly since then. It was a whole lat easier (and faster) then starting with a clean install.
What kind of computer, laptop or desktop? If desktop, leave the old drive in and use it for data and keep the SSD for the OS.
