Transfer Windows 7 OS (Operating System) to Solid State Drive (SSD)

Transferring OS to solid state drive can improve the overall performance of our system as well as reduce the boot-up time significantly. However, since operating system is that vital, transferring OS to SSD needs to be extra careful. To safely transfer Windows 7 OS to a solid state drive, we can use AOMEI Tech’s Partition Assistant.

Freeware AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard provides us a solution for Windows 7 OS migration.

1. Download and launch AOMEI Partition Assistant Standard. In the main interface, click on Migrate OS to SSD or HDD.
