Default Got my new build to post, what's next?

I finally got all my parts on friday (after a ticket) I have put everything together and turned on the power and my system posted and went into the bios. Now what is the next step? install windows 7 on my SSD?(do I need to update firmware first?) I have both my 60GB SSD and 1TB black pluged into my hotswap bays (800D) but I have read that you should unplug all but one drive before installing windows, is this a good idea? or should I update the bios? The user guide says not to update the bios if the current version is fine.

My motherboard is a ASUS P8P67 Pro (I have another topic with my part list) Anyways I have never build a PC before and I am just happy it posted because a few times I thought I was in over my head.

So if anyone can say what order I should do stuff it would really help me out.
