I just figure I will come across some sort of unforeseen problem. A friend added a SSD as his main drive and installed W8, using his old w7 HDD as a secondary storage. Attempting to boot into that drive blue screens the computer even though he had changed nothing else.
If I do just use it as-is, I can no longer uninstall the programs so I'll be forced to format it at some point.
Thanks for the response, maybe I am over thinking it
