I have two older laptops with 320GB hard drives with windows 7 on them. I would like to put both of them in my new desktop but I have a question. I don't care about any of the info on them but I want to keep windows 7 on it. Should I completely clear one of them but keep windows on the other, or keep windows on both of them?

Also, will I be able to take the optical drive out and put it into the desktop?

Thanks for the help :)

If your windows license allows for the use on the desktop just leave it on one. Optical drives are cheap so buying an adapter to fit a laptop one in a desktop does not make sense.
