Will my BootCamp partition still boot if I add an SSD?

    Hello all -

    I have a stock HD on a MacbookPro 8,1 that has Snow Leopard and Win 7 installed.

    My plan is to put in an SSD into the HD bay and install Lion and move the HD to the optical bay.

    Is there any reason why my Win7 partition will have trouble booting once I have moved the drive to the optical bay?

    Thanks!

    To answer my own question, it all works.

    I installed an OWC SSD and put Lion on it. I then removed the optical drive and installed a Data Doubler with the original HD. I can now boot Lion off the SSD, and Snow Leopard/Win7 Pro off the HD.
