I'm going to install a second hard drive in my laptop. Here is what I have and what I'd like to have...

My current setup:
750 GB hard drive

  • Partition 1- Everything Mac related
  • Partition 2- Windows 7/BOOTCAMP

The setup I'd like:
60 GB SSD

  • Mac OS, Mac Applications

750 GB hard drive

  • Partition 1- Everything else Mac related
  • Partition 2- Windows 7/BOOTCAMP


Can this be done? If bootcamp is already installed on a partition on the 750 GB hard drive, can I just pop the new SSD in, install Mac OS X, and use the previous Mac partition from my larger drive (partition 1) for Mac files? Or will I need to reinstall Windows 7 to get it to work properly with the newly installed Mac OS X?

Thanks a lot for the help!
