I just purchased my first SSD, which I currently have installed in my laptop.
I'm curious to see how much an SSD will improve performance on my desktop computer, but I don't know how to boot the SSD without reinstalling Windows 7 all over again.
Is there a way to configure the drive so I could easily swap between computers and boot?
That would be very difficult and highly impractical unless the hardware on both machines was almost identical. Each time you moved the drive windows would have to reinstall all of the drivers for every device and that would probably require several restarts. You're better off to decide which computer you want to use it in and just leave it there.
