Drivers are generally installed on system drive, i.e. the drive in which windows 7 is installed & it will be wiser to do so in SSD.
During software installation the software installer will prompt you to choose the destination folder almost always, which will give you the option to install it on SSD or HDD.
Thanks for your reply and the suggestion for driver installation. I tried to install the drivers for a USB network adapter today and the software installer would not give me the option of drive choice; only "C:" drive.
My system recognizes the two drives in device manager, but the installer apparently did not? Are you saying that this is normal for driver installation and the installer defaults to the drive with the operating system?
I've not tried to install any other software to this system other than Win 7. Thanks.
