Whoa hold on there no need to panic but you have lost me somehwhat!

Are you saying Windows boots via the SSD or what? and just how many drives do you have hooked up?

Anyway start by checking in the BIOS as to the drive priority for booting. For example if you have drive #1 2 3 and the SSD is #2 set it at the top of the boot priority list and then check the first boot device list and make the SSD the first device for boot and the optical for second and USB as third etc etc .

Yep that is what is happening mate just because you installed on another drive it doesn't mean the old OS will be removed in fact the new install and the old can be on the same drive in different partitions .

Thats why I asked you to set the drive priority and then the first boot device in the BIOS.

Now I am not real sure of how to deal with the Windows old install - as it should show up as and I think as long as you boot from the new drive it shouldn't cause any problems.

There is probably something in the tutorials I'll have a look see.
