Windows 7: How can I use Acronis Migration Software with a USB instead of the CD?

How can I use Acronis Migration Software with a USB instead of the CD?

I just purchased the Kingston HyperX SH100S3B 120GB SATA III MLC Internal Solid State Drive and it comes packaged with a handy HDD to SSD migration kit. The problem is, my rig doesn't have a disc drive, and I know that the program runs at boot and not through Windows.

My thought is that if Windows 7 can be installed from a bootable USB, then this software should also be able to as well. Can anyone provide a tutorial on how to do this?

Many thanks in advance.

Take look at Option two in this tutorial:

So the process should be identical, only that I'm using Acronis instead of Windows 7?
