If I were to buy a new laptop and decide that I would like to swap the hard drive out for an ssd first thing, how would I go about doing it? Not physically, but how do you move the OS over to the new drive? Let's assume I only have access to an external HD and a Flash drive.
Clone the drive. Samsung ssd's have a program with them called Samsung magician or something like that.... it clones the drive in a couple very easy steps.
