SSD important question

Hi everyone,

I currently have 2 hard drives, each 1TB but not in RAID. I am planning to get a SSD (http://www.alternate.be/html/product/Solid_State_Disk_3,5_inch_SATA/OCZ/OCZSSD3-2VTX120G/454909/?tab=3&page=1#tabberBox). Its in Dutch, you might not understand. But anyway, because my C drive is one of the hard drives already, can I run the SSD as the C drive? Or will I have to reinstall windows on the SSD?
Thank you for your help,
Olivier

  1. You will want to reinstall your OS on the new SSD.

    But the problem is: I had Windows Vista and I upgraded to Windows 7 with an upgrade key.. how do I install the OS on the SSD??
  4. I would disconnect the 2 1tb HDD's and having only the SSD Installed, then install Vista then Upgrade to Win 7. Then reconnect the 2 HDD's
  5. If you C drive is smaller then the SSD just clone it to the SSD, easy and done in less then 10 mins.
  6. With the Windows XP Upgrade (from earlier versions), and I assume Windows 7 is the same way, you insert the Windows 7 upgrade disc and begin a Windows Installation. At some point, it states that the upgrade requires you to have an earlier version of Windows--which you pop in for it to verify. Then you put the Ugrade disc back in and it continues.

    There are some handy guides online to improve performance with Windows on an SSD. I wouldn't disable the page file--but some people do it.
