That would work.
But it's much easier to clone the hdd to the ssd. Then there's no need to reinstall anything.
i want to upgrade my hard drive from hdd to ssd in my acer laptop,
what i want to do is put a new ssd drive into my laptop, and reinstall windows 7 operating system, do i need to change any thing in the bios???? will the pc understand its a ssd drive??? the acer laptop holds only one hard drive
thanks for your time, bluesfloyd
