Hi all,

I have an X58A UD3R motherboard and a 60gb SSD and 1TB HDD. I am looking to add another SSD to replace windows and for larger storage. Do i simply just add this HDD into my computer and boot up windows on my original device and then use a program like clonezilla to copy the windows over onto the new SSD? (Then format the original HDD). I cant fresh install windows as i have windows 7 oem without the disc. 

Thanks for any help!

yes, the basics of what you're talking about would be what you would do. if you're familiar with clonezilla then you can use it to clone the current windows partition to the new SSD. if not you can use something like easus disk copy http://www.easeus.co...y/home-edition/
