I am planning on buying an SSD to replace my current SATA mechanical drive. Is there a way I can create an image of my entire system as it is now, then remove my old drive, install the SSD and write the image on to the new drive? This would save me a lot of time as I wouldn't have to reinstall all the programs again and reconfigure everything.
The other thing is that this is a dual boot system (Windows 7 & Debian) using Grub. The last time I tried to remove a Linux distro from my machine I couldn't get Windows to boot up after. I think I tried to also remove Grub too. I assume Windows isn't going to backup anything outside of its own operating system.
Thanks in advance.
