    Question Need your suggestion/feedback for first time SSD user

    I just got my SSD today and want to install fresh windows 7 here. i have gone thru some articles, but need to know these things first,

    1. do i need to unplug HDD before installing win 7 on SSD (i will be using a boot-able dvd)?
    2. in BIOS mode, other than setting up 1st boot drive as DVD and 2nd as SSD, do i need to check/uncheck other features as well?
    3. i have no idea about intel rapid storage feat (i turned it off), is it required to be turned on before installing SSD?
    4. after installing win 7 on SSD, will the boot menu show two win 7 to choose from?

    I have got 2 HDD other than this,
    one is Toshiba 1TB (now the system drive)
    and other is Samsung 320GB.
    my mobo is ASUS H97M/E

    please suggest any must have info on SSD if required before i go in deep for installing.

    Thanks in advance....Cheers!

    1. No need to unplug HDD. Use boot sequence DVD > SSD > HDD
    2. No features specially needed.
    3. dont know
    4.If you install a fresh copy and use SSD to boot, there will be only one windows 7 in boot menu

    If you don't wanna install a fresh copy, use And clone disk App to copy your windows partition to SSD. In bios use SSD as 1st boot drive to boot.
