Steve, thanks for the reply, and thanks putting up with my endless questions.
I don't need WinXp right now as I only use it to print longer than 37.25" on my Epson 3800, and I have images for that.
It would be nice to put the new drive inside the PC, and who knows if my external inclosure will even work with the SSD. The 520 does come with adapter to fit a 3.5 drive slot, and I still have a empty slot. I want to save the old slot for a backup drive. I assume the same cable will work with it, but did come with two sets of cables, one must be a power cable that I'll need for my empty slot.
I didn't find a way to deactivate my adobe software, and customer service is closed for the Holiday.
I was warned by the guy at the University to make sure they understand that this is educational software, and comes with a coupon to get the serial number, I could lose my copy if its isn't done correctly.
I will need to look into the Win7 boot thing you talked about. I have software call "Boot it" to make my duel boot over two years ago, maybe I can still use that as well.
I will report back after I talk with Adobe.
