Default Moving the operating system to another HD in the same computer.

Dear all:

The title might be vague. What I want is getting a SSD HD to replace only the OS drive (or partition). I need, out of experience as it is the OS I'm talking about, the best software, if exists, that allows me to migrate the system to the new SSD HD so it works as it used to. Perhaps a system image capture or something?

It will probably be faster than reinstalling the OS and all drivers, plus programs, specially that require registry.

It can be Googled, but I thought that getting info about a software that actually works without the slightest risk could save me way much time.

Thanks in advance.

Acronis True Image is what you want.

What do you guys think of Clonezilla? I haven't used it, but I'm currently downloading it. It's a free one.
I started looking it up because I wanted to have a WDS/RIS server, but none of these computers at this district can PXE boot.
