I have a ASUS G75VW with windows that came pre-installed and I have recently acquired a 120GB SSD and would like to move windows to the SSD. I have nothing installed on the laptop and I have no discs or anything. How would I go about getting this done. Thank you in advanced.

If your ssd has a free clone utility, use that.
Intel and Samsung have them, others might too.
Attach your ssd with a usb to sata cable and clone your hard drive to the ssd.
Then remove the hard drive and replace with the ssd.

Ifyou need a utility, I think clonix and acronis have clone utilities.

You can clone or image. In you're case hdd to ssd, i would recommend cloning. It would basically clone everything from A to B. You can browse youtube and google for free app for windows and guide how to do it. Its too elaborate to give instruction here
