BootMGR - BCDEDIT

I dont understand why im installing W7 in a second hard drive, The temporary installation source X:\windowsis present. After copying installation files, SSD Is ready to be installed.

After rebooting,the old hdd has the new bootmgr of the SSD.
Im saying this because my present Windows is in french and my ssd should be in enlglish.
I saw when I booted in a useable windows

In my Rampage Formula 3 Mobo, into the Bios, in the boot option then chosing hard disk drive, all HDD were toggled on.In boot sector I can see only once hdd and dvd burner example or USB bootable key, I can chose the first hdd where was written in hard disk drive feature.

To resume, the boot tab in bios own Hard disk option. In boot tab I have to chose the bood device priority. In hard disk drive, this menu give me to chose my X hdd or Y hdd in first to see it in Boot but had all hdd in hard disk drive menu.

I suppose maybe if I installed my OS into the ssd while the bios option hard disk drive menu were off in Boot tab.
So maybe the Bootmgr wouldn't have mixed into the wrong drive ?

When you're installing Windows onto an SSD. Make sure the old hard drive is unplugged. Or the System Reserved hidden partition will be installed on that.

I installed my ssd like vistaking said having the other drive unplugged. Then plugged it back in after windows install, pulled off the files I wanted to keep. Then I reformatted it. All is good no bootmgr issues.

Please post back a screenshot of your Disk Management - Post a Screen Capture Image - Windows 7 Help Forums with both drives attached.

Tell us what is on each drive.

We'll give you the steps to recover the System boot flag to the SSD and remove it from HD.

At the moment, I dont have any trouble I want to avoid the mix of 2 separated HDD which have O/S each.
HDD = Backup with a functional OS
SSD = Will be my Main when I will install, I know I can unplug or disable In bios before installing the OS
But I already did that, and after a year or something 2 hdd has been mixed.

Sorry for my bad english im french canadian native.
