Make notations of your speed so you can see how fast it increases with the new one.
For the installation of the new one, just download the program and replace the primecoin and the primecoind files with the ones in your harddrive, then just restart the program again and put the commands again "setgenerate true -1" and youre set, it might take a little while to pick up, like 5 mins, but after that you are ready.
