Create a Linux Live-CD, run the dd command in terminal.

Be sure to copy the HDD to SSD, the other way around will cause data loss.

 

Next, in GEDIT remove the "Boot" flag from the HDD. Restart your computer and it should boot from SSD. If not manually set BIOS to boot from SSD.

 

After all this, get files off the old HDD in windows and copy them to safe location. Then reformat the HDD.

 

 

And your done, enjoy your SSD :D
