    How to move EFI partition from HHD to SSD

    Hi all
    I have just bought a SSD to use it in my laptop and I wanted to know how I can move the EFI partition from the old HHD to the new SSD.
    I have instaled the OS in the SSD and delete all the dates of the HHD and when I try to run the computer I see that it take more time to start, then I saw that the EFI partition was in the HHD. Any one can tell me how can I move it?
    In this link you can see how the discks are now:

How do I move my boot partition to the left?
I was dual booting with Windows 7 and I deleted that partition. It is to my understanding that I would need to move the Windows 8 partition to the left before extending it. Do I need to use a CD, or can I do it from a program? Thank you.
