Looks ok; after assembly, connect only the ssd leaving the cables next to the seagate. Install the windows files to the ssd; then download maxblast 5.0 software (free or use the maxblast cd with retail box drives). Install and reboot; connect the seagate while windows is running. Click on maxblast; clone the seagate 100%. You will have to reboot; if it gets stuck on the post screen, disconnect the seagate, and reboot again, this time connecting the seagate when the word "maxblast" appears on the screen. After the cloning process is through, it will ask you to press any key to shutdown. Then disconnect the seagate drive and reboot. After windows loads, connect the seagate drive and windows will set it up as a temporary secondary drive. This may seem un-necessary, but if your ssd fails for any reason (mine has done this 3 times) then your seagate will be ready to use as a backup.
