In the bios, select drive D as SSD. Install windows to drive C. That's it. System on C and data on D.

Most protective case

For a hard drive? Best to get a rugged portable drive. Or, for best results for speed and data safety regardless of condition, buy a 500gb or 1tb SSD (solid state drive), and throw it in a metal enclosure.

How to change hard drive ntfs format

In windows this is done through diskmgmt.msc (disk management) but if you change the file system (NTFS) you will lose all data on that drive or partition.

How to change hard drive ntfs format

Boot the windows installation media and go to the repair section of the installation media and select command prompt.
run these commands individually one after the other:

select disk 0
create partition primary
format fs=ntfs quick

once you have exited the diskpart service you can restart the installation process from the installation media.

Beware... If the hard drive you are formatting to NTFS currently has an existing file system or other OS loaded onto it then that information will be deleted (most likely irreversibly. Since you have a GPT disk at the moment that tells me that you most likely have Windows 8 installed on that particular device. Windows 7 does not install on every device that has Windows 8 preloaded. You may also have to go into the BIOS and disable the security keys associated with that drive and OS.

*Proceed at your own risk and I do not accept any liability from these or any other tips provided in this or any other posts. All computer repairs dealing with DATA are and can be inherently risky if you are not well enough trained to do it properly*

Iintend to change my sata hard drive to a SSD hard drive.How do I format before change

When you install Windows on your new SSD hard drive you can then transfer data from your old hard drive using an USB hard drive adapter or install the old hard drive into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an USB external hard drive after you have transferred your data to your laptop.
When you connect the USB hard drive adapter to the laptop, the laptop will see it as an external storage device, you can then open the various folders anf files and copy them to your new hard disk.

The best way to speed up W7 is to install an SSD (Solid State Drive), such as one of these drives:

While they are expensive, you will_not_ regret the investment. To save $, you don't need to purchase a large SSD drive. Put W7 on a small capacity SSD (commonly referred too as a boot drive) and then use a regular hard drive (your old one) for mass storage. For example, on my computer, I use a 40GB SSD for W7 (C:) and a regular 500GB hard drive (D:) for music, videos, large downloads, pics, etc.

There are also a plethora of websites that will show you how to speed up W7. Here is one:

Another way to speed up W7 is to install more memory, but you won't get near the noticeable performance increase as an SSD. In fact, after installing an SSD, if you try to enable ready boost on a flash drive W7 will tell you that it is not neccessary because you already have an SSD that is faster.

Install SSD drive in a Panasonic laptop

What problem are you having in trying to install a SSD in the laptop?
These solid state hard drive will install exactly as a normal hard drive, provided the BIOS can detect this SSD.
They are more expensive than a normal hard drive based on $s per byte.
