Hello,

I have a new Sandy Bridge Dell XPS 17. I want to replace the HDD with a SSD and then put the replaced HDD into my desktop. Does anyone have a how-to for this?
 
Keep in mind you will need a new license for Windows. Once you transfer the laptop's system to the SSD, that license is used. You will not be able to use same license for both systems; likely the PC that inherits the HDD will need a new one.
