    Hi,

    Total noob here to bootcamp, I have a Mac Pro 3,1 w 500gb hdd and 10.9 installed.

    What I want to do is install windows on an ssd. I'm not particularly concerned if mac os x is on ssd too, but to my understanding it has to be, so I may as well have it on the ssd as well.

    I am going to buy a 120gb ssd+ icy dock to put it in the mac pro. I am not sure of the process to get windows on it.

    Do I first need to install 10.9 on the ssd, then make 2 partitions and get a copy of windows 7 professional 64bit, can I just buy an oem dvd and install windows from this?

    Cheers.

    No, just plug in the new SSD and then run bootcamp is enough.

    Yeah, just plug it in, Bootcamp will take care of it and you'll be fine. :)
