WINDOWS 7 HOME PREMIUM 64bit
 
 
ssc card & hard drive.

Excuse my ignorance, but i want to do a clean install of Windows 7 home premium 64bit on an ssd card, but keep all data libraries etc on a 1.5 tb hard drive.
How do i set up Windows to do this automaticly.
I have a back up of our data on Macrium reflect. on an external drive.
The Windows 7 is set up at the moment on a 1.5 hard drive.
Thanks for your help.

Welcome!

As far as I know, there is no way to install Windows 7 to an SD card. Are you wanting to install on a Solid State Drive (SSD)? Check out these tutorials: Clean Install Windows 7

Clean Install with a Upgrade Windows 7 Version

Hope this helps,

Yes thats what i meant a solid state drive.
Or do you think with solid state drives still in there infantcy, a Western Digital VelociRaptor would be better.

If you can afford an SSD, I highly recommend buying one. The velociraptors are slightly slower, but use more energy, get hotter, and are more apt to fail, being mechanical.

SSDs will improve, and the price will come down, but they are still very fast.

Thanks so much, i will get an SSD.
Still not sure how to make all the libraries & data go onto the 1.5tb hard drive seperate from windows on the SSD.
Do i have to manually transfer,or is there an option of where to put it when i clean reinstall windows.

Go ahead and do a clean install onto the SSD. Then all your data will still be left on your 1.5. Just remember to unplug your 1.5 from your computer before installing.

The 1.5tb is in the Corsair Obsidion case, where i also intend to put the SSD in another bay.
So i just take the 1.5tb out which is easy, just slides out.
After i have installed windows on the ssd, & put the 1.5 back in, will windows recognise where to put data.
Then can i delete windows 7 on the 1.5.
Sorry to be a pain, but i have only ever installed everything on the same drive.
Thanks for your patience.

Tell you what: do not delete anything until we make sure we are ready to.

Finally i have got an ssd drive, a Kingston ssd now v+series 64 gb.
I have installed Windows 7 64bit on it with no problems, after following your advice.
At the moment i have removed it, & re-installed the old hard drive & am booting from that.
Can you now explain how to use the ssd to boot from & the hard drive for data, & connect all my old data, to windows on the ssd.
would you also put any other programs on the ssd, or just use it for windows.
Your help will be greatly appreciated.
