1. drop the SSD in and install Windows7 as you would on any other Sata disk. Just make sure all other HDDs are physically disconnected. Else you may get some unwanted effects with the MBR.
2. When w7 runs, check to make sure that Defrag is disabled (it should be from the installer) and Superfetch is set to automatic (better for performance)
3. Optionally you can delete the hiberfile if you do not use hibernation. Saves you some SSD space. The command is powercfg -h off

That is all I ever did. More elaborate tweaks might give you a 1 or 2% better performance, but you will not notice the difference. Chances are only that you muck it up. That's why I always refrain from those tweaks.
The command powercfg -h off just disable the hibernation or delete also the hiperfil?

It deletes the hiberfil and frees up the space on the disk. If you ever want it back, the command is : powercfg -h on
