    Default How do you install 2nd bootable hard drive with os, then remove os ?

    Hi all,
    Need some help. I just recently installed a new ssd and installed a clean copy of win 7 64 bit. Now what i want to do is use the old hard drive for storage.
    The old hard drive has the same os as the new one. How can I install the old hard drive and remove the os without interfering with the new drive.
