Windows 7 installation on SSD Help

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This is my first post on Overclock and so it happens, my first computer build. I have a Corsair Force GT 120GB SSD that I want to install windows on as a boot drive. I also have a WD Black Caviar HDD that I want to use for storage.
1) I read that it is recommended to just have the SSD connected upon Windows 7 installation. Is this true? And if so, after installation, do I just connect the HDD and windows will recognize the HDD?
2) I have the SDD connected to the Intel SATA controller while my HDD is connected to the Asmedia SATA controller. Does this matter?
Thank you in advance for the help. smile.gif
