Yes you can. But, you will need extra hardware and software. You will need an external USB hard drive enclosure and a bootable drive copy software. On either CD or flash drive. I once bought them as a set. I think the company was called Apricorn. You might need to call Microsoft after the change in disks. It will probably fail their authentication routines when you first use the SSD.

Good luck
