treat it just like a spindle drive in that respect.

boot the win7 cd, tell it new install (forget the wording, just dont select upgrade or repair), delete the SSD partitions, let it reformat. you can let it quick format if it gives the option.

then just install win7. no tweaks are needed, win7 is SSD aware.
