I have a Win Xp setup. Freshly reinstalled and feeling happy. The motherboard is 4Core1600-GLAN and reads sata2.
The plan is to clone the drive and replace it with a ssd drive.
Any advice as to what I should do would be greatly appreciated.

Be aware that XP isn't SSD friendly. click here said click here state that their partition manager, free from click here has a 'Migrate OS to SSD or HDD.' option which claims that 'this function can help to move OS to SSD without reinstalling windows.'
That didn't appear as clearly as I thought it would !

Thank you for the replies. The motherboard is Vista friendly but I have stuck with XP. I was hoping that write speeds up to 3GB/ps could be possible with sata2. Assuming backwards compatibility with a sata3 ssd but what do I know?
I shall have to look at it further before I spend any doshers.
Thank you again everyone.
My question now must take a change of direction.
If I were to clone a ssd drive with my current XP setup and then find I couldn't get the PC to boot. Oh joy BSOD. How I love your absence...
Would I be able to re-format the SSD drive. Wipe it clean and into a more upto date pc, sata3 et al?
Are there any restrictions?
The first pc I bought second-hand in 1990. 40MB disk drive. MSDOS 5.25in disk. It's all changed.
