Windows 7: SSD - Install and Transfer the Operating System

Mike I would use Macrium Imaging - Windows 7 Help Forums,

Be sure to include the System Reserved partition if you have it.

Once you've cloned or recovered stored image to the SSD, power down to unplug all other drives. If it won't boot then boot the Win7 disk to confirm that System Reserved is Partition Marked Active to run Startup Repair - Run 3 Separate Times until it starts.

No System Reserved makes it easier. I'd just clone C over to the SSD using Macrium, power down to unplug HD, see if it will boot. If not confirm C is Active to run Startup Repairs.

What do you think included Open Candy? Macrium download? What was the download source?

Mike I would do what Greg suggested mate clone the thing something I have done a ton of times and used the clone to upgrade to other OS's (7 to 8 etc) and just so I can keep the original for a spare should the (usually larger) drive fail you can always slip the original back in.

I just use Macrium free and have on the C: drive (and taskbar) I do have one copy of the full version but have little recourse to using it.

Mike I expect it will offer candy but just be careful to pick out the Reflect. Now in my pics I have chosen my image drive cos I have problems right now - pick the empty drive (make sure of the drive letter) and click on through to Finish.
