Windows 7 64-bit, Windows 8.1 64-bit, OSX El Capitan, Windows 10 (VMware)

Thanks for your help Essenbe...

Once the system is running just fine, back it up, and restore it to the new Intel SSD.

Linux CENTOS 7 / various Windows OS'es and servers

Hi there
If you don't mind spending a little money on DECENT 3rd party backup software - Acronis will backup from and restore to different hardware -- works quite well.

Activation is another issue but that's not usually a problem if you are using legal software.

I know you've solved your particular issue - but IMO it's always good to have DECENT FUNCTIONING backup and recovery software.

(Most people these days have serveral TB of music / video. Imagine how much time to re-rip / re-create music and video libraries if you lose them or don't have decent backup and your primary HDD fails).
