I bought a copy of Windows 7, one pc worth and I installed it to my 32g SSD by accident. I have a 500g HDD just sitting there wishing it had Windows 7 on it and I am curious how I can resolve this situation. I bought the SSD to put my game on it and run it much faster. Any advice would be really helpful.

Hi :) 

Leave it as it is.... your game runs THROUGH need Windows on the SSD...THE WHOLE MACHINE will run faster, including the game...

All the best Brett :)

Yes. To be safe, I would disconnect the SSD after the cloning to insure that the HDD is working properly. Then you can format the SSD.

Also, Brett928S2 has a valid point.
