Solved SSD win 7 question? Tags: SSD Storage Boot Hard Drives Last response: January 29, 2014 5:50 PM in Storage Share squid917 January 29, 2014 5:38:09 PM So right now I have a 2tb HDD with win7 and everything I have on it. Is there a way that I can boot from the ssd, but go into win7 from the HDD? I want to be able to just boot from the ssd and then use HDD for everything else. Thanks!

You can't boot from a new install on the SSD, and access old applications existing in the old Win 7 install on the HDD. Some things might work (poorly), but a lot will not. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer davcon a b G Storage January 29, 2014 5:50:20 PM ^+1 That's what I've done on three builds.
