How do I prep my hard drive? Tags: New Build Western Digital Hard Drives Systems Last response: February 13, 2010 5:58 PM in Systems Share mirzai_m February 13, 2010 5:24:39 PM Finished my build, going to install Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit on a WD 1TB Black Caviar. What do I do to prep my drive? Do I partition it? How do I do that on a new build with no OS on it? What purpose does it serve? Do I install any utilities that...do...stuff? Help! Thanks!
