I recently bought a SSD. I installed the SSD, it comes up as New Volume, while my C drive(HDD) comes up as Local Disk. Now my question is, does the primary OS on a system have to be the C drive? I installed Win7 on the SSD without problems, but when I boot my pc I get the boot manager to choose between the Win7 on the SSD and Win7 on the HDD. I don't want that to happen, I bought the SSD to have Windows on it. Can I just format the HDD? Will that wipe out Win7 on my hard drive and make my SSD the only boot option?
Your current installation will not boot without the hdd. Install windows with a disconnected hdd to get a new bootloader on the ssd. Assuming you have th right boot order in bios, you can connect the hdd later and copy your files and format it.
