Hello,
I bought a computer that is running dual boot os's. Win 7 on one hdd and win xp on another. I want to get rid of win xp but cannot even though I have changed permissions. I then want to switch from raid to ahci. My final product that i am wanting is to clone my win 7 hdd to a new sdd and runn the two hdd's as slave for storage. Please help. After switching bios to ahci, win will not boot from wither hdd. One gives an error message and the other prompts me to run a repair disk.

How large is your Win7 partition and the SSD you are going to put it on? If you have a USB drive with enough capacity you can use one of the online guides for using Clonezilla or other drive cloning programs to clone Win7 on to the SSD.
