UEFI Frown. Basically did not like it at all, and the OS is some "OEM Version" that can't be activated on anything else. They include NO installation CD or material, so basically you can only restore from Windows 8 itself.

OEM Windows 8 is worse than Windows ME! IEEK! I cant believe I said that.
You have to set UEFI back to legacy bios mode to install Windows 7.

Can't you use an Acronis imaging program or something similar and clone the HDD and restore it onto the SSD ( and then do the SSD optimizations)?
No you can't because UEFI will automatically boot Windows 8 and attempt to repair any changes you made that can damage your operating system or boot changes.
