    Default Adding SSD as 2nd drive: how to get to boot

    Newbie question. Stupid but I'm at a loss.

    I just added an Intel X-25M SSD to speed up boot and application times on my existing HP Pavilion Elite e9105 and its 640GB HDD. After successfully formatting it with the Vista Disk Manager, I need further guidance on how I can configure it to be the boot drive. I'd like to preserve the 640GB drive, but it can be reformatted if necessary.

    Any pointers on what to do next are appreciated.

    (p.s. both drives are SATA based, not IDE)

    Basically you just need to install your OS onto it.

    You will need to get into your bios and select it as your first HDD in you boot list.
