After I finally figured out my HDD was going to die, I ordered a New SSD. My system is from Dell. I don't have any Windows disks for Windows 7 or Office 2010. I looked for some tutorials but I can't find any. Thanks for any help.

Hi

 

If your HDD is still working you can migrate the OS from HDD to SSD without reinstall everything. But it requires a lot of manual work as HDD and SSD have different sector alignments. Easy way is to buy the special tool developed by Paragon to do this.

I don't think that is going to work since there may be problems with the HDD.  I do not want to transfer bad things to my new ssd.

You can order the recovery discs from Dell. They will ask you the computer model number and possibly other infos. To reinstall Office 2010, you can install a trial version of it and activate later with the license key.
