I am pretty much a beginner at this. I put a new system together. P8Z68-V PRO and i7 with one ssd and one hdd and one dvd
Upon boot up all works fine and I get the Menu screens that the book says and they work, but now what. I want to load Windows 7
I want to put it on the ssd.
Sounds dumb, but do I do next?
Once you're in the BIOS, there should be an option called "Boot Devices" or "Boot Priority" or something to that effect, depending on the motherboard. All your drives (hard drive or otherwise) will be listed there.
You'll want to set it so the DVD drive is boot priority #1, then save your BIOS settings and restart the machine with the Windows install disc in the DVD drive. Then it should boot to DVD and start the Windows install sequence. You'll be able to select which hard drive to install to from there.
Once you're done installing, don't forget to go back into the BIOS and set your SSD to boot priority #1, otherwise it'll keep trying to boot from the DVD.
