I upgraded my Asus UX32VD to a new SSD. Now I want to install Windows 8 again, but that is only on a recovery partition on the old HDD and I cannot acess that. Besides that I am not sure if that is the proper way to do it.

I recommend that you find the original Windows 8 ISO somewhere and install Windows from it. That way you won’t get preloaded with crapware. – kinokijuf Jun 2 '13 at 21:58

Use some Tool like Acronis to clone all partitions from the old to the new SSD.

The old HDD is no SSD, is that still possible? Will th new SSD be bootable like that? Thanks! – Jan Nov 10 '12 at 15:37

You need to use the recovery kit maker from Asus called 'Backtracker' Its obscure but here is a direct link to the website.

Be careful of course when using it and make sure you read the instructions
