Does anyone here know anyway to swap the factory installed HDD for a new SSD?

I have tried using windows 8 recovery and creating a usb using factory recovery partition. But this only boots into windows recovery, i can see the asus recovery on the usb but can't access it using f9 or booting into the usb.

I have tried to use Backtracker which only works on laptops, i have even tried using the usb i made for my laptop and changing the image files to my desktop one, but this fails.

I have yet to try cloning the whole drive any ideas?

The Hdd is 2 tb and the SSD is 128gb.

Thanks

Joe
