With all those hard drives, you shouldn`t be storing any data or anything important on your windows drive, there`s no reason to.

Yeah theres nothing important on it as it is just my OS. I don't want re-install again takes too long doing all the windows updates etc so ill just use the steps above!

Thanks all for the help!

But......If you ever removed the hard drive or formatted the entire hard drive or if it dies, then windows on the ssd would not boot.

This is why it`s best to unplug ALL the other hard drives when you install windows

How do you plan on activating your install on the ssd ?

Do you have a COA on the computer case somewhere ?

What did you use to install windows 7 on the ssd ? A retail copy of windows 7 Ultimate ?
It's already activated, its a developer version of W7 I've had since pretty much the beginning
