An install to an SSD probably wouldn't take over 15 or 20 minutes for a basic install.

I have no idea about your gaming question.
So it's not absolutely necessary to disconnect the storage device or revert to default BIOS? The reasons I ask are
1: I have a physical disability, so if I need to have the storage drive disconnected, I'm going to need to find someone to help. And I don't have any friends that are good with PCs.
2: I didn't do the overclock on the processor and have never done one. Is it easy to do?

Bro, its not a problem- just read my post you will get the proper idea (Just choose the correct drive to format and mark as active and format - its that simple).
and also for over-clocking first google about you processor and bios & then only i will recommend to over-clock you processor.

All the best
