Installing Windows 7 Via Flash Drive (Old HDD)

I just have a quick question. I've got a new build, I'm taking some stuff from my old computer, specifically my HDD, and putting it in my new one. The HDD will be wiped at that point.

Question is, if I'm installing Windows 7 via flash drive, do I need to go ahead and have my HDD plugged in and ready when I boot from the flash drive, or do I need to plug that in later?

    Needs to be plugged in when you boot off the drive. SATA is not hot-swappable.
