I have bitnami Wordpress installed on my windows 2008 r2 server on C:.
My server just has installed a new SSD. I now want to run bitnami Wordpress stack on the faster SSD.
I have backed up my bitnami Wordpress folder.
What is the next step? Is it possible to install onto a new location?
Should I use windows "uninstall program's" and uninstall the program that is already in C:?
And then how to restore to a new location, with a new path, etc?
Thank you! :)

If you want to move your installation to the same route but in the new disk then you can follow the steps for backup your installation and restore it: http://wiki.bitnami.com/Applications/BitNami_Wordpress#How_to_create_a_full_backup_of_WordPress.3f
If the new installation path is different then it will be easier to do a fresh install and then migrate your data.

"To restore the system, copy the directory to a different Windows machine in the same location and follow these steps from a command prompt"
It says for the same LOCATION. I need to restore to a different location: a different disk!

Yes, I asked if you would use the same location because it was not clear for me if your new disk will replace the old one and would be configured as the C: drive. However it seems this is not the case. Then it would be easier to use the second method. You can backup your data, stop the old installation, install the new stack, migrate your data, and if everything is ok, then uninstall the old one.
