Install Windows 7 on SSD 2. Go to BIOS and make it boot from SSD 3. Move files to SSD that you don't want erased 4. Format HDD 5. Move old files back to HDD that you don't want on SSD ^^ that's exactly what I did on the build I just finished and it worked great! | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Storage>How do i upgrade to a ssd and use my hdd> Related ressources: ForumHow can I use my old HDD with my new SSD ?
