You can use software like Acronis's solutions to transfer the data from one drive to the other...but unfortunately, I don't think Windows will work particularly well on a 24GB drive, which is effectively even less than that. Should be at least 64 or it will constantly be starving itself for workspace.

but also, @Edweird is right: 24GB is a cache ssd, not enough free space for a full windows.
if you plan to install ubuntu or any other linux distro, or a portable windows ( i.e windows-on-the-go ) may be it is enough... but for a full windows is it NOT enough space, and it shuold be used only for the pagefile.sys , hibernation.sys etc....
