I have an Windows Vista machine which I bought a while back.

I would like to upgrade it and put the OS on an SSD.

My problem is that I did not get a Vista CD with the machine. Rather, there is a partition on the current hard disk with a restore image.

Does anybody think it is possible to copy the restore of the OS onto an SSD or should I just find a Vista CD?
