    I am so confused. What exactly are you trying to do? I can't make heads or tails out of your post.

    I think the OP is trying to figure out how to get Lion on the SSD and reserve the HDD for storage.

    Take out the HDD from the MAC, reinstall the OS to the SSD via Internet Restore (CMD+R upon boot).

    Put the HDD in the Optibay or external USB enclosure and format it once you have all your data moved over.
