That's an excellent idea.
Hello BrettAwesome, welcome to Seven Forums!
If the above doesn't do it you may need to start another clean install though as there is a failed install 'floating around' there somewhere I would do a wipe (secure erase) to the Hard Disk Drive (HDD) just to remove any code that may cause issues.
Also use this same tutorial at the link below to create a 100GB partition to install Windows 7 to, I wouldn't make it much bigger because we're seeing issues with some installs stalling when trying to install to too large a space.
Have a look at this tutorial for an out-line of the process and be sure to post back with any further questions you may have and to keep us informed. SSD / HDD : Optimize for Windows Reinstallation
