Default New SSD to replace the 160G harddrive

Most image backup software titles have the "Hardware Independent Restore" feature, i.e. patching of restored Windows image to be runnable on a new HW.
You can also do this manually, but this is a long process with registry tweaks and MBR signature tweaks.
