    I'm totally stuck how I'm going to reinstall Snow Leopard and then BootCamp 7.

    My reasoning was like this:
    1. Take out HDD
    2. Put in SSD
    3. Using disk drive, install Snow Leopard etc.
    4. Take out disk drive
    5. Chuck in Optibay or DD..
    6. Put HDD in Optibay spot.
    7. Format the HDD to FAT32 or something..

    Is this the correct way to do it!?

    Would both the partitions be able to use the HDD then? Thanks dudes.
    And then if I have games that REQUIRE a disc to install.. if I just backup the game directory (EG: C:/Program Files/Game) and then put it back on the hard drive, will it function as well as it would installed?

    Me English not so well when to explain it :D
