How do i install win7 into the SSD

Hello guys,i purchased a SSD drive recently and i would like to make a clean installation into it.I own a laptop which has already win7 into it.I booted into the recovery partition but i don't find any option to install win7 into another drive*,so i guess i shall find another way to do it.I found this tutorial USB Windows 7 Installation Key Drive - Create and i wanted to ask you if i should follow this tutorial or can you suggest me any other way to install win7 into the new drive?I also wanted to ask you if i can i trust the link to the heidoc.net.It doesnt look like the official site,they provide other links here How do I repair my Windows 7 installation? The product key is - Microsoft Community

Thx in dvance for any help!


*I replaced the DVD drive with the SSD,so now i have 1 HDD and 1 SSD.

Ares22,
Welcome to SF. I take it you don't have the original W7 OS CD? Seems to me the way you'll go about this is to create a image and bring that into the new SSD. You may want to consider using a tool like Paragon that many here speak highly of as it will align the SSD properly in the process.

Why do a clean reinstall ... why not simply clone it?

I agree a clean install is one way to go to get great results, but the ease and surety of the best SSD alighment with the Paragon is reportly out standing.....me thinks it's the best 19.00usd you'll ever spend. I was being talked into it and I used another program and i wished I'd just splurged for the Paragon. You can also try the free version of Acronis available of Western Digital's site? Otherwise read this and maybe another answer lies in here?
