Windows 7: SSD, boot order, drive letters- I need some info

07 Feb 2020   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

I bought it from an eBay seller. I had it on my watch list and got a seller offer for $6 off.

I'll use the WD Blue I had on hand for now and buy a 1TB SSD when it's convenient, I'm hoping if I wait a bit prices will drop some. I did have to update the Intel RST drivers though as I was getting a lot of minor Windows errors and performance issues that are apparently typical when cloning an HDD to a better model and swapping it out if your drivers aren't recent enough for the drive- which all cleared up after the RST update.

what happens to drive letters when you dual-boot?
1. My machine has XP on a single hard drive w/ 3 partitions. In order to try W7 the easiest thing for me to do is to install it on my E: partition. If I boot into W7, do the drive letters change around or do the W7 system files still show up as E:\WINDOWS? Are there any downsides to this...
