Windows 7 Professional 64bit SP1

Yes, it is possible to migrate your OS to an SSD, there are a few tutorials here on exactly how to do that. I always like to point out that if there is any feasible way to do a clean install of Win 7 on an SSD it is always the best option.

SSD Instal and transfer tutorial--->SSD - Install and Transfer the Operating System

Migrate User Folder---->User Folders - Change Default Location

If you want to give the Clean Install a try, here is a tutorial on that---->Clean Install Windows 7

Let us know if you have any questions beforehand, no matter how simple. It is much easier to address a question before you tear into a project.

Hope this helps clarify some things.
