Can I boot from an SSD despite my pre-existing HDD already having windows installed on it?
In a couple days, I am going to have my new 120GB SSD delivered. I currently have a 1TB HDD in my PC right now, and I wanted the SSD so I could run windows on it for improved performance. The problem is, I wanted to know if I could install windows on the SSD using my windows 10 ISO and boot from it without having to erase or alter and data on my existing HDD. I mainly want to move windows and all of my clients to the SSD, but I don't know if having an SSD with windows on it and an HDD with windows on it will cause any unwanted interactions. Any help with this is greatly appreciated.

No issue at all, but I would freshly install Windows on the SSD, with the HDD removed. And then reconnect the HDD.
Yes I agree, don't have the HDD connected when install Windows on the SSD.
