Hey guys,

sorry if this question has been asked before, I did a search but am still noobish and didn't find the exact same question as I've had.

Here's my set up (Sabertooth Z77, i7 3770k, 16gb ddr, gtx 670 SC 4GB, 2 TB Seagate Black)

Here's my question. I have all my files, games, data as well as windows installed on my seagate. Recently purchased 128GB M4 SSD. I just want to be able to boot windows from my SSD, without it being my primary drive. I still want programs and downloads to go onto my seagate automatically. I'm sure there is a setting in bios, but thought I'd first ask how I'd go on about doing so before tinkering with it.

Thanks! sorries for being noobs

You'll need to install Windows on the SSD(and it will have to be primary), configure your program files directory and user directory and then re-install your apps. You'll probably want to backup your data from your hard drive, and then wipe it.
