Hi there, I am getting an X51 soon and I would like to install an SSD that I already own for use as a boot drive.

I have a Windows 7 DVD, so I could just install the SSD and install Windows, then wipe the included 1tb HDD. But my question is about the Alienware drivers, especially the program that changes the lights. Is all of this software contained on the included DVDs that come with the computer? I just don't want to have to search the web for the OEM Alienware software if I don't have to.

Just to be clear, I plan on having both the SSD and HDD installed.

Thank you!

You may want to look up a guide for simply cloning your HDD to your SSD so that you have everything just the way it was but on the SSD. Then, later, you can just transfer the files you want to the SSD and such.
