Thread needs solution

I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium x64, I have Acronis TrueImage 2016 WD Edition_33, I have made the Boot CD.


I want to replace my 500GB hard drive with a 500GB SSD.  I have current full backups of the C partition.  Can I just remove the HDD and replace it with the SSD, then Restore my latest backup to the SSD?

1.  What about alignment, going from a HDD backup to an SSD?

2.  I'm assuming after this operation, that the SSD will be bootable?


Thx in advance.
