Hi when formating whats the best option. My mobo is a z77xud3h so i can have UEFI format but how do you format propper for this. If i insert my windows 7 dvd and go into the bios and Boot option priorities and go into Boot option 1 i get these choices.

P3:HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH24NS90
PO: SanDisk SDSSDX120GG25
UEFI: HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GH24NS90
Disabled

With Windows 7 disk out of the drive i have options.

Use a standard MBR on your SSD, and install it with no HDD attached. Don't select anything that starts with UEFI in the boot priority, list the regular DVD first and the SSD second. Also insure that you have AHCI SATA mode selected rather than IDE.

I would leave the boot mode selector to both.
