    Then the options pop up & you use the arrow keys to highlight the position you want & press Enter.

    If I had a camera I would post a screen shot.
    Alas, I have no camera right now.

    On my system, the drive letters change according to which OS I have booted up. If it's windows 7, the 320 GB Drive becomes C, the Windows 8 System drive becomes E. That's reversed if I boot to 8. Both OSes boot from the 320 GB IDE drive, because that's where the boot loader is.

    So, when you boot to the SSD, it should be C when the system comes up. You can arrange the drives any way you want once you get the system booted to the SSD drive.
