Hi.
I have Windows 7 originally installed on an old HDD and recently purchased an SSD. How do I go about installing windows 7 into the SSD and deleting it from the old HDD? Is a reformat of the HDD the only way?

im not a big fan on SSD's however you can buy a caddy off the internet to place your old hdd in and then u can format it and use it as an external drive?

ebay is your best bet for the caddys

I was afraid that was my only option. I guess I'll have to suck it up and just do it.

Thanks.

personally i would wait for other members to post, im not a big fan of SSD's so i dont kno much about them.


when other members come on they can give u other guidance, different members may have other ways of doing things and maybe able to suggest other things

hang tight my friend

Hi Cham,

Are you still waiting for information on this post or have you installed W7 on your SSD in the meantime ?

Cheers,

John
