can I simply place the win7 disc into the optical drive and boot from it? Will this reformat the ssd leaving it absolutely empty?

If there's anything on the SSD you should use the Custom drive options to Delete the partitions and create new as you wish, or just click Next to have the installer create/format an install partition and begin. Clean Install Windows 7

Of course. You can reinstall as often as you want.

Do you have any other questions about getting a perfect Clean Reinstall?

Read over the steps to make sure you understand them. Focus on getting it perfect. If you don't then you're wasting your time.

yes, Do I seriously need to download the ISO if I already have the disc...

edit: Do I need to create a new 100mb system reserve partition? Or do I just install to Disk 0 unallocated space-238gb?

You only need the latest installer if your current one doesn't have SP1. That will save hours of updating.

Just ignore the System Reserved partition which is created after you delete all partitions during install, and whether you repartition yourself or let the installer do so.

I think a mod may have created a link in my second post... just wanted to throw it out there, because it seems to lead to a weird driver detective site. I did not mess around with any of that type of program

also. the frehs install is finished and speed is back to 15-18s boot. Now the task is to find out what driver or program caused the slowdown

As it says in the tutorial, install Updates and Programs slowly over time to gauge performance changes after each.

Save a WIn7 backup image as soon as it's set up so you can revert back at any time in the future.
