I already have windows 7 on my SSD, but have registry issues. I'll need to clean install. Is there a proper way to go about this rather than just simply formatting the SSD at the installation screen? Thanks

Nope, a format while doing a clean install is generally all you need.

All the best.

Oh, side note? Make sure the SSD is the only hard drive plugged into the computer when you do install, else you're going to have wonky MBR issues.

Formatting is not good for SSD's. Just quick format it

I think you mean defragging, not formatting.
