Install it the regular way, and make sure there are no partitions on the disk, if there are, delete them, and let windows setup create them.

Hello RJ,

Since it's a new SSD, there's nothing special that you have to do. You can just do a normal clean install of Windows 7 like you would on any other SATA/AHCI HDD.

When you are done with the installation, make sure that Disk Defrag is disabled.

And if you do not use hibernation, you may also want to delete the hiberfile. The Command is : powercfg.exe -h off It saves you a few GIGs on the SSD. All the other OS files should stay on the SSD.

If you want to move your user files to the HDD, here are a few tips on how to create a Data Partition

That's a load of hooey, none of it necessary at all and just asking for issues.
