~~~~Video Details~~~~
Upgrading to an SSD can be done in one of two ways:
1: The Squeaky Clean Method - Using Your Recovery Media or Windows Install Disk to Install a Clean OS or Factory Image onto the New SSD
2: Clone Your Existing System/HDD onto the New SSD

The First Method is by far the best way since you end up with a clean system. There will be no registry errors or all kinds of hidden programs running in the background that you are not aware of. However this video describes how to do it the second way, by cloning your existing system/HDD. I've made it about as easy and painless as possible so everyone can do it.
