I have ordered an SSD drive that should arrive at the same time as Windows 8 is released later this week.
I want to install the SSD drive and do a clean install of my PC OS at the same time. I intend to keep my HDD for saving photos etc..
What is the best order in which to approach this?
I was thinking I could:
- re install Windows 7 on the SSD, format the HDD and then buy the Windows 8 upgrade
- buy the upgrade before installing the SSD and create the upgrade installation DVD. Install the SSD drive, boot up from the HDD and then use the clean install facility on the Windows 8 upgrade DVD to install Windows 8 onto the SSD and reformat the HDD?
Will this work?
