Win7 OEM installation - How to move it to a new SSD?
Posted on 2013-11-06
My home PC runs an OEM version of Windows 7 from a HDD. I've just purchased a 120GB SSD and would like to move windows onto it.
In Windows Explorer, the HDD shows 119GB free of 465GB, so I can't just image everything onto the SSD. Would this be an option if I could get the disk usage well under 120GB?
I do have a 500GB external HDD I can temporarily put data onto.
Alternatively, is it possible to re-install Windows from scratch onto the SSD? I have burned a "64-bit System Repair Disk" at some point, but the name implies it won't be enough for what I need.
