Re: ssd

That would work.
But it's much easier to clone the hdd to the ssd. Then there's no need to reinstall anything.

reinstall windows 7

if your planning on using the recovery partition that's not going to be there once you pull hdd out.

you must make bootable recovery media first.

then you do the swap.

enter the bios and change the boot order to the recovery media.

let it fly.
