    Need help installing win 7 on ssd on G74S

    I recently purchased an Asus G74S and I wanted to Install my Corsair GT 120 GB as the Primary HD. I called Asus for tech support and they said they went Green, no longer providing CD's to use to backup. They also said that they couldn't help me with the support on how to install win7 on my ssd with out a CD.

    I haven't been able to get into the windows installation screen to format the old HD and install win7 on my ssd. I want to use the ssd as the main and the HDD that came with the computer as a backup.

    If anyone has any info on how to do this or has experience doing this, please let me know.

    Thanks

    I've already done the hardware part, just need help with the software part. Though I am reading more of the that thread.

    This thread doesn't explain how to use the partitioned win7 to format/install on the SSD. All it says is how to do the technical installation of the drives. I need help with the software part.

    Do you wish to 1) clone your current Windows installation on the HDD to the SDD, or 2) perform a new installation of Windows to the SDD?

    If you want to do #2, then http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread...ll=1#post60902 will get you started.
