I just bought a crusial c300 256Gb and wondering if I should do a fresh install or if I could just use norton ghost for instance? Anybody care to say yes/no and why about using norton ghost. Saves a lot of time just copying, but would speeds be fu*** up somehow?

When I got an SSD for my work machine, I just imaged my drive. It was an noticeable improvement, without having to reinstall Windows.

It seems you need to install Windows when the SSD is set to AHCI in the bios, to get the best performance. This wouldn't switch over with an image, but can be changed with registry key edit....I think??

If you can spare the time, reinstall. You'll get to see how fast the install is on an SSD
