Windows 7 SSD optimizations applied when?

I've got a Windows 7 install running on my laptop, and will be upgrading to an SSD shortly. If I take a Windows system image backup from my current HD, and restore it to my SSD, will I get the SSD optimizations, or does Windows do those checks during the install? If so, is there some way I can force Windows to recheck and/or act accordingly?

"I think you can apply the image on the new SSD.
Afterwards you can check what Windows think of the drive. Run this from a cmd window...

fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify

If DisableDeleteNotify = 0 then Windows recognize your SSD.

Here are some links/hints for SSD drives:
