Yes, it's BootIt Bare Metal (GUI), V1.11

Download it and when you are ready I can help with further instructions.

Edit... how to make a CD

unzip the download
double click makedisk.exe, next
dot in BootIt Bare Metal, next
dot in I accept the agreement, next
tick Image for DOS (GUI)
tick Scripting Support, next
dot in Mouse Support Enabled, next
dot in VESA Video, next
dot in Video Mode 1024*768 - 64K Colors, next
dot in Normal, next
don't choose any Device Options, next
tick in Enable USB 1.1 (UHCI), next
tick in Align partitions on 2048 Sectors
tick in Use Windows 7 MBR, next
ignore Additional bootitbm.ini Options, next
enter your BM license details
select your CD burner drive letter (you can use a CD-RW or a CD-R disc)
Finish

Can you just confirm when you start your desktop you see the BING Boot Menu with Win7 and WinXP choices.

Brian,
Downloaded BootIt Bare Metal (GUI), V1.11. I also downloaded the WinZip free 45day trial to my laptop, I have it on my desktop, I paid for that license, be I don't trust my desktop because of the possible virus.
Thank for the instructions, I can do this my laptop, yes.
I remember doing this the last time with Bootit NC, but I seem to remember having problem, but your instructions seem clear.
Once I have the disc made, I will report back Monday. Hope to be ready to start the clean install.
Thanks, Bill
aka, Mr Moose.

Brian,
Yes, when I restart, and after the Dell splash screen, I still get the choice to boot to Win7 or WinXp.
Can I make the disc per your instructions on my laptop?
I should still have the boot disc I made two years ago as well
You talk about Bing as well as Bootit NC and BIBM, what is the difference between them, I remember the first two, but that was two years ago.

Bill,

Yes, make the CD in your laptop.

BING = BootIt NG
BIBM = BootIt Bare Metal

BIBM is a big improvement on BING. Better suited to SSDs and Win7 OS.

OK. After you have created your BIBM CD you will need to upgrade BING on your desktop to BIBM. It's easy.

boot the desktop from the BootIt BM CD
Setup... click OK to upgrade BING to BIBM and put a tick in Remove the BootIt NG Files after upgrading, click OK
Setup... Click OK to begin
Setup... click OK to Setup completed successfully
click Close
Setup... Remove the boot CD and click OK to restart
BM will boot and you should see your old Boot Menu
click Maintenance
click Boot Edit and then choose Edit (for your two boot items) to confirm everything is correct. It should be. click OK
Done!

What are your plans for the Win7 partition (that you don't trust) on the HD? Would you like to delete it?

The SSD installation comes later but what size would you like the Win7 partition to be on the SSD? Do you plan to have another partition on the SSD or just the Win7 partition?

What size is the Win7 partition on your current HD? How much free space is present, roughly?

I just reviewed your Disk Management screenshot from May. The Win7 partition was 149 GB with 71 GB free space.

Edit... What size is your SSD?

Edit... How many of your HDs are internal?

Sorry for all the questions but I don't want to offer bad advice by not understanding your system.

Hi Brian,
I'm about about to unzip the down loaded BIBM,  file with Winzip, but winzip used have the option to extract to a location of my choice, which in this case was a folder I made on my decktop, that option isn't there, how do I proceed?

Bill,

I right click the zip file, slide down to WinZip and choose the third choice in the pop out menu. The extracted folder will be in the same folder as the zip file. Then you can move the extracted folder to where ever you like.

Brian,
I did right click on the file, it opens in my trail version of WinZip, it way different to me. I pretty sure I need to send file to a folder. I was going send a srceen shot, but I don't how do it on this laptop. I see a option in winZip to send to. I'm sort of lost with out my desktop.

Thanks Bill. Which OS are you using? I don't open WinZip at all so I don't see what you have posted. I just right click bootitbm_en.zip, etc.

Bill,

I don't use WinZip anymore. Too bloated. I prefer 7-Zip.

http://www.7-zip.org/

If you continue to have trouble with WinZip, uninstall it and use the free 7-Zip.

7-Zip 9.20 (2010-11-18) for Windows:

Install it and right click the zip file, slide down to 7-Zip and choose the fourth choice in the pop out menu. (Extract to "bootitbm_en\"     )

Brian, OK, I found how extract to folder, my mistake was to open in WinZip. I now have the file in its own folder in my desktop. Now I have to brake for dinner, how much longer will you be online? I should be back 1.5 hours.
I should now be able to follow your instructions, Will see when I get back.
Thanks for the help.
