    Go into the BIOS first, checking that you have all the settings for your setup correct, once you are satisfied then you can put the Win7 disc in and save and exit BIOS setup and go for it.

    Make sure you set your DVD-Rom as the first Boot device

    Agreed.

    First thing you do is go into BIOS. Go into the Hardware/monitoring section and watch your temperatures for a few minutes, make sure they're not too hot or don't spike up. That'll be a quick indication that your CPU heatsink is installed properly and then go from there.

    Change your BIOS date/time, settings, etc. Leave most things on Auto for now.

    Reboot, then hit F8.

    Select CD-ROM drive as the (temporary) boot priority and let Windows 7 install do its thing.

    Activate, then do these things in Windows: Performance Improvements and Cautions for your SSD!
