So during this week I'll take my second SSD from my workstation and install it in my laptop. After the install I want to be able to dual boot Ubuntu and windows 7 from it. Since I haven't done this before and I imagine that it might not just be as straight forwarded as it seems due to total cleaning before installing the new operation systems?, therefore I'd like to ask if there is anything I've to do with the SSD before installing it in the laptop?

Best regards

If you wipe it before you install it (if I understood correctly), it will work just like any blank hard drive. I find it easiest to get dual boot working if I install windows first and ubuntu second.
