    Assuming all the data fit on the new disk (if smaller), then all you have to do is clone your old drive on the new. This makes a perfect copy and you can also boot into Windows. Due to the different hardware you may need to activate Windows again, and even Office and some other applications. There are several applications to clone a disk such as Acronis True Image, Macrium Reflect etc.
