  1. Very soon I will be getting an SSD for my computer. I already have Windows 7 64bit installed on my current 2x 500gb Samsung F3s in RAID0. I will soon need to install Windows on the SSD. Is deleting the partition on the F3s and installing it on the new the only option? Or is there any way I could install it and not lose the many drivers and updates and such?

    You could use something like Acronis True Image to make a image of the hard disk, and then transfer that to your new SSD.

    That would give you exactly what you have now, all on your SSD. You can even save the image on your F3's, and then using the boot media to load, and then restore the image to your new drive. Once thats complete, just wipe your F3's.

    Saves countless hours of getting Windows back how you like it again.
