Once Windows is installed, plug in your old HDD and it should boot into your new installation. If it doesn't, you need to set your SSD as your boot drive in the BIOS. Once you've booted into Windows from your SSD (and your HDD is plugged in), you can click on the Windows icon, and in the "Search programs and files" field, type "diskmgmt.msc" and press enter. That will open Windows Disk Management and you can reformat your storage drive that way to have a nice clean drive. Just be sure to backup your files before hand.
