Linux [Mint 13] & Windows 7 Transfer to SSD ?

Hey, I plan to upgrade my thinkpad X60 laptop with an SSD, up from the paltry 80GB HDD thats in it right now.

Im currently Dual booting Windows 7 [32Bit] and Linux Mint 13 (cinnamon)[32Bit] off my hard drive, and wish to shove them onto an SSD.

There are reasonable guides for windows, and im under the impression that I can use clonezilla or partimage for linux, but what about transferring them both ? I would need some way to re-create the bootloader on the SSD. I also have no idea how to do alignment and stuff.

Any help on these matters would be appreciated.
