Replacing Lenovo Y50 HDD with SSD, had some questions


Oct 11, 2012
Hello all,

I had a couple questions regarding my Lenovo y50 (i7,16gb) and replacing its current 1tb HDD with a crucial mx100 512gb ssd.

1. I plan on cloning the HDD to the ssd using an external hd encloser because it just seems easier to do as of right now. My first question is there any setting I will have to change to install the SSD?

2. What do tu believe is the best cloning software to use to do this and will the recovery partition on my 1tb HDD cause problems with the transfer?

3. After te cloning ,how hard/what steps would I take to doing a fresh windows 8 instal, as the computer didn't come with a record disk.

Would appreciate any help you guys could give and thanks in advance.
