Virtual Disk Error on SSD. Cannot clean.
Hello, first time installer of an SSD here! I'm extremely excited to pop this bad boy in mainly for a faster overall boot of my computer. Recently, my friend gave me his Crucial M4 64GB SSD, which I am very thankful for. I plan mainly to put Windows 7 64-bit on it and that will be all. I was reading this guide: (SSD - Install and Transfer the Operating System)
Once I opened up the command prompt, I did all the processes stated until I got to, "Clean" for whatever reason, after typing in the command a prompt came up that stated:
"Virtual Disk Service Error:
Clean is not allowed on the disk containing the current boot, system, pagefile, crashdump, or hibernation volume."
So, what I'm asking is there anyway I can bypass or fix this problem so I can continue the process of putting Windows 7 on the SSD? And another question is, would it really be worth buying the $20 program that the guide offers? Or would that program help my problem at all?
Thank you very much!

You cannot run Clean command from the drive being cleaned. Boot into the Win7 DVD System Recovery Options or System Repair Disk
to use it's command line.
I would clean reinstall to the SSD following these steps to get a perfect Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7
If not use built-in Win7 backup imaging or Macrium - Image your system.
Backup Complete Computer - Create an Image Backup
System Image Recovery
