When I do a build I install the HD only at 1st .... install the OS to the HD on a small partition at the front of the drive. Then I unplug the HD data cable and install the SSD, do the OS install to the SSD. After all is done, I reconnect the data cable.
This way if SSD install gets borked, I can always go into BIOS and tell the machine to boot off the HD instead. Normally tho, you are gonna boot of the HD .... I also put most demanding app or game onto SSD
Jack Im reading alot and am doing a new build now and want a SSD and HD, si there a step by step on htis for install and configuarion, for example using a proggy like excel, open program and save data to regular hard drive not the SSD?
Im confused, can you clear it up for a dumb ass...
just install the SSD and the OS, thatll be your boot drive, thereafter, just install the hdds and save files to them.
for example, i have a 90g ssd (wish it was a bit bigger lol) and i install all my main work programs etc...(photoshop/premiere etc...i have MANY work progs) and i SAVE ALL my files to the other HDDS so as to not take space from my ssd.
