I have already installed Windows 7 Professional 64 bit on my PC - on my HDD so I'd need a way to move it without a re install (preferably).
What you actually want is different from what you are requesting.
The drive lettering is determined by the OS itself. You want your OS on your SSD so it doesn't matter what the drive letters are.
If you don't want to reinstall the OS, is your current OS install on a seperate partition on your 1TB HDD? If it is, just shrink the OS partition to around 51GB and apply the image to the SSD.
If it is not, you can do either
1) Unplug the HDD, reinstall OS on SSD, plug in HDD, set primary boot to be SSD.... done.
2) Move all your non-OS files on the HDD to a new partition, shrink OS partition, and apply image to SSD.
