1. Go to BIOS, set boot priority 1. CD-ROM 2. HDD
2. Unplug your old HDD (leave it in your case, so you can re-connect later). Important you disconnect this as Windows 7 might see this drive first. Make a note which SATA port your HDD was was connected too.. best if its a native Intel controller, and its SATA 2 or 3..
3. Replace with your new SSD.
4. Insert Windows 7 CD-ROM
5. Start PC, press DEL to go to BIOS. Set to ACHI (you should see the Intel in the boot priority list number 2 now), Save.
6. Choose Custom Install of Windows 7 - let it do the rest
7. Go to Intel website- Install Tool Box 3.02 - this will sort out all the settings like Superfetch ect...
8. You're good to go.. run the Tool box features like optimizer etc..
