I have 128GB Crucial m4 mSATA 6Gb/s SSD. So I think I need to buy those screws.

I was able to scavenge them from an ancient laptop.

One more question, is it ok if I first connect SSD as a drive and install latest firmware before installing Windows on it?

That's what I did. But I also disconnected the HDD (temporarily) for the initial Windows installation. This ensured Windows went onto the SSD as drive C:. Otherwise, it's rather likely to create the new system on the SSD but assign it to D: or E:. I've seen it do some really weird shi^H^H^ stuff.

Also, is there any thing that I need to configure for Trim?

Nope. With a clean install, Windows will take care of that.
