Default New SSD to replace the 160G harddrive


Can I simply clone the windows to the new SSD? or need to install by the
windows vista again?

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.
