I'm looking to switch SSD's around to make my Samsung(faster one) my boot/ OS drive. Would it even be possible?

Yes...you would have to backup anything you want to keep from the Samsung, format it, then use a program like Acronis True Image to clone the SSD with the OS to the Samsung.

No. Install the Samsung and load the OS. After that's done, you can then install the other SSD. I assume you don't want the slower SSD to have the OS on it also.

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
