I disabled the ssd/hdd altogether in BIOS as a boot device. But I will unplug it and see.
Edit - just unplugged SSD and it boots up from windows 7 dvd and loads setup files
edit 2 - "It is also very useful before starting the Windows installation process to correct for disk format errors of many kinds, to include over-writing the Linux / Grub boot loader, that is known to cause serious issues when installing Windows to a HDD / SSD that has had Grub as a loader in the past; also to correct installation errors when clean installing Windows 7 to a space that originally contained Windows XP."
