I currently have an IDE drive that contains XP Pro, this drive will NOT be going into the new system. However I need this IDE drive in order to install my copy of W7 Pro UPGRADE over the current XP environment. I would like W7 to go on a fresh SSD.
Given my situation, what's the best way (and how) to setup the SSD drive?
I'm leaning towards installing XP on the SSD first.
If I'm correct, this means prepping the SSD through the XP environment, then installing a fresh copy of XP on the SSD (since I'm assuming Win7 Pro Upgrade won't let me install to a new partition, although I could be wrong on this).
