Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but this is what I would do.

1. 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!
