There are various ways to do this, but I can tell you how I have done this -- several times.
What I recommend is the following: 1) Download and install Macrium Reflect (MR) 2) Connect the new drive to the PC using a USB-to-Hard-Drive drive adapter (like the one illustrated below) 3) Follow the instructions in this link: http://knowledgebase.macrium.com/display/KNOW/Cloning+a+disk 4) Shutdown the PC when done 5) Swap the drives and reboot the PC.
You should boot from the new drive without any problems.
NOTE: To do this easily, the SDD has to be the same capacity as the HDD. IF you get an SDD that is a lot smaller, then before you do the cloning, you have to shrink the largest partition on the HDD (usually the OS partition), to the size such that it, and the other partitions, fit easily on the SSD.
Typical USB-to-Hard-Drive adapter:

Thank you for the solution you provided to me. The Macrium software I downloaded is asking me to purchase to have a full access to do disk copy. I don't want to purchase it cause I will use it only one time.
But anyway I will use my laptop using Windows 7 thats why I want to upgrade the hdd to ssd. Windows 10 wont work on some of my programs which is running on windows 7. The problem is everytime I run setup of win7 my laptop give me a blue scream of death error or asking for me for driver of my DVD. By the way I use Disk to install win7.
Its like something that Pavillion x360 m3-u001dx wont allow me to setup any OS but win10.
Do you have any idea how can I install windows 7 on my systems?
