Can I do this?
Expert:  michelleclive replied 9 months ago.

if you have 2 operating system dual boot on the 500 gb disk you cannot use it as a drive you will have to build the ssd drive as c: drive and install windows either xp or windows 7 whichever you want.

Let me know if you need more info.

I guess I did not phrase the question properly. I would like to start using Windows 7 which I have on a SSD (128gb). Would it be possible to connect the SSD as drive c and connect the*****as drive d as a "data" disk and install the programs back on drive d via the new O.S. which would be windows 7?
Expert:  michelleclive replied 9 months ago.

yes you can connect the ssd drive as a primary c drive and you will have to make the 500gb hdd to slave drive as d: drive.

Let me know when you are online i will give you more info.
