Hello. I have a ocz vertex 2 60gb ssd which I installed windows 7-64 bit on. I only want windows 7 installed on my ssd to make windows and booting really fast.

I also have a 150gb wd velociraptor hd that I would like to save games, movies, music, etc. on. I had it disconnected when I installed windows 7 on my ssd. Now that I connected my wd velociraptor, when I boot up, it goes to the install windows 7 screen.

How do I get past this? How do I format my wd velociraptor so that it doesn't have windows 7 on it? I only want games, movies, other junk on my velociraptor. Thanks

Did you make the SSD the primary boot drive in your bios? Other than that, just format the velociraptor to clear off the old data.

Hwkeye22- That is right on the money. Do exactly that should run fine after that.
