I assume you don't want the slower SSD to have the OS on it also. Tin88 July 11, 2012 3:05:10 PM I have my system all setup with the slower SSD as the boot/ OS. If I wanna us the new Drive (Samsung) as the OS do I have to format then reinstall windows or can I use the system image/ backup? Thanks again Can't find your answer ? Ask !
