Personally, I;d just re-install. Will be the best way of getting the best from your new drive.

If not, you can clone it to another drive: todo-backup.com/backup-resource/d...to-ssd.htm

Just do a reinstall, it's not worth the effort to move it over.

Macrium Reflect worked wonders for me! Got my Samsung EVO running!

Do a fresh install. You purchase the SSD for a reason. Backup all the "important" data first.
