Can someone give me a list of steps to do a clean factory install on my new SSD, and make my HDD a secondary? I don't care if I lose programs, I can re-download them.[\QUOTE]
Yup the recovery DVDs will work just fine.
Follow Cecils guide here ( Step-by-Step-Using-ASUS-Recovery-DVDs-to-Restore-G75
You start by pulling out your current drive and putting in the SSD ( ONLY ) and following Cecils guide on how to recover it.
Then after you get all the way done with that process you can delete the recovery partition on the SSD ( which gets newly created ) and expand your OS partition. I use MiniTool Partition Wizard for stuff like that.
Don't forget as soon as you finish recovering SSD from the recovery disks you immediately have to uninstall the Asus live update ( because it is back!! ) and do other cleanup/removal of stuff you do not want.
You could then use MiniTool to create a bootable CD and put back in your factory drive and then ( booting from minitool ) delete all the partitions on your factory drive and start using it as a data drive.
