Also the fact that AMD provides driver via the Catalyst Control Center worries me as well. Will i also run this Catalyst on Intel, considering i'm using the same drive and it probably wont wipe it?

I mean don't get me wrong, the option you just suggested is the best thing by far and i didn't even know it existed. Just want to make sure everything will be smooth before i try it and run into a surprise.

hi,

maybe you can try this guide and make CD backup of you SSD drive first, I've tried the first option but unfortunately it did'nt work because I have not made system repair disk (Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit). Upgraded my Processor and Motherboard.

here is the link:

I would like to point out those that sysprep isn't designed for what you're about to do, you'll still have all the folders and files of all installed applications and you won't be able to uninstall them, Nor will you keep your profiles or any changes you've made.

It will essentially trash the machine back to a default windows state. Not what you're looking for.

Another thought I'm having would be to operate the drive of the netbook, gradually transfer everything there, and make sure it is setup from scratch and matches the setup i now have on the Desktop. Then wipe the SSD as new. And then migrate from the netbooks HDD, the data to the SSD. So i wont waste any time having the systems go offline. IS that an option? I hear software like Acronis or various partition managers allow you to clone a system drive into another, in case you want to switch hard drives.

Not true. All the programs will continue to work, and you can log back in to the exact same user profile you had before you started. You will have to reinstall the drivers and put back on Windows themes and customizations, but it does not affect installed programs or profiles. It simply resets the hardware portion of Windows. I've done this several times when moving between AMD and Intel machines, and it works fine. Sysprep has several functions including deploying brand new installs, but the generalize function you use for this does not trash the machine.

What does Sysprep generalizing do to my Windows 7 setup?
All system specific information is removed or uninstalled
Security ID (SID) of your hardware setup is reseted
All system restore points are deleted
All event logs are deleted
All personalization is removed (taskbar, toolbars, folder options, start orb etc.)
Built-in administrator account is disabled (if it was enabled) and needs to be re-enabled if needed

Wat program would you suggest to backup the drive into an image in case i want to turn back. In case i'm not satisfied with the results, or simply find i need that drive back on the desktop i would like to have that option.

The built in Backup and Restore works fine for making a system image, or you can use something like Clonezilla. If you have a WD drive in the system you can use their free tool (based on Acronis), although I've only ever used it to clone a drive, not to make an image:
