I was just informed of this site by a friend. I am about to fire up my first BYO and wish to load a brand new OEM XP Home SP3 onto the drive. I do not wish to have a 1 TB C: drive. In that effort, I prepartitioned an un named drive of about 50 Gs. Will XP load onto that partition and name it C: and leave me the rest of the HDD to partition as I need later ? I would like to install Win 7 pro for dual booting purposes later.
Advice would be much appreciated.
