As the title says I'm looking into installing an 256gb SSD drive in my 2011 i5 iMac but need it to boot to Win7 . My concern is do I install the drive out the box (unformatted) and then follow up with boot camp to install windows. I'm going to be using the ssd strictly for windows and keeping the 1TB as my osx drive. I've read up on numerous threads if I were using osx I could clone it before installing it via carbon copy cloner. I've also read that I can't install win7 via USB but only using the thunderbolt port in which I don't have an adapter for. Don't want to install it to find out I missed a step and have to redo the install. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
