No need to reinstall. You can just clone the old HDD to the new SSD and all will be fine.
Don't forget to unschedule defrags, if you have those. SSD's should not be defragged.
Hi I was told that if I want to increase the speed of the laptop I just purchased (HP Probook 6550b) that I should buy a SSD so I did. I figured it would be pretty easy to install but then I forgot one important thing: THE OPERATING SYSTEM! My question is, since I purchased this laptop used (its running Windows 7) when I replace the current drive with my new SSD how do I ensure the Operating System is still running/working? Do I have to reinstall Windows 7? thanks guys!!
