Trying to figure out logistics of Windows 7 installation on new hard drive

I have a laptop with two internal 250GB hard drives in a RAID configuration and no CD/DVD drive. I'm replacing the two 250GB hard drives with a 256GB SSHD plus a 500GB drive, and I want to upgrade to Windows 7 at the same time (with the SSHD as the boot drive).

Here is a tutorial that explains how you can copy the files onto one of the drives, boot to the drive, then install from there. It sites Windows 7 RC, but should work for the RTM as well. I would recommend putting the files on your hard drive, installing onto your SSD then you should be able to delete the installation files.
