  1. Format the HDD in Windows 7, then detach its data cable and do a custom install from the Windows & SP1 disk and as an initial step choose to unallocate the SSD before doing the install. You don't need to do a secure erase unless the SSD is having problems.

    Reattach the HDD after the install and optimize your ssd:
