It's not plug and play, Sorry.

If you don't just re-install windows; It will go something like...

1: Make a backup that you know how to restore. Restore points are NOT a backup.
2:Update your motherboards bios. You may need to for the Windows Cumulative update anyways.
3: shrink/move your partitions to get a minimum of 5MB unallocated space at the end of the boot disk. (not fun)
4: Install iRST (the latest version)
5: enter the bios and switch the sata port mode from ahci to intel RST, the save and exit.
6: Make sure you booted up ok in RST mode.
7: in the RST app you can now accelerate your other disk.

If it messes up then you have a backup you can restore

[edit] if your motherboard doesn't have iRST as a Sata Port choice, then use Raid.
