Clean install Windows 7 On SSD T430
Help much appreciated
Need some help with installing my factory installed Windows 7 on my new SSD.
I have no idea how to do this without the Windows DVD/CD, which is how I have installed Windows OS in the past.
I have tried using the lenovo think vantage tool and create boot media, however it will only let me do this on the HDD that came with the machine.
I have no DVD/CD drive also I ordered my T430 with the ultrabay caddy HHD.
Any Help is much appreciated, thanks guys.

You can follow my guide which shows you how to clean install Windows 7 on your T430, DVD/CD drive is not required for the process as long you have a spare USB flash drive.
