  1. If you've installed windows on to your SSD you're done. All you need to do is select the HDD for games you want to install on it.

    When installing a game you want on your HDD just change the path to "D:\WhateverFolderNameYouWant" instead of "C:\Program Files\FolderName".

    There isn't any special settings you need to make to windows.
  2. when im pn steam it doesnt give me that option
  3. wont let me turn the hdd into a (d:)

    but i changed it from b to e
  4. Is the operating system installed on the ssd or hdd?

    Is steam installed on the hdd?

    Follow this guide if steam is installed on your hdd and you want to move it to your ssd

  5. On Drive letters. Your DVD/CD drive is probably D:

    What I do is set the DVD/cd Drive to C + a few letters. to keep it out of the way (ie G:).
    Then you can set your HDD to D:.

    It's not a big deal if the CD/DVD drive is D and the HDD is E. Just change my example from D to E, so "E:\WhateverFolderNameYouWant" when installing a game on to the HDD. For example I have my steam as "D:\Steam" but it coud just as easily be "E:\Steam"

    ^, Correct, Not a big deal and does not effect functionality.
    Myself I do it from strickly an organization reason.
    A & B = "floppies"
    C-> whatever. I normally have two SSDs ( C & D) then two HDDs normally E-> G, and a BD-RE ( H:) and DVD Drive (I). Small System partitions I throw them Up to M: and above.
  8. my os is on my ssd
  9. ok so my ssd had a 100mb of reserve so i caned that.

    also does it matter if i have a 90* or strait sata cord on my ssd?

    and by changing my hdd to active change anythung??
  10. On straight vs Rt angle sata cable - which ever fits the best.
    "ok so my ssd had a 100mb of reserve so i caned that. " and WHY.,
    Your SSD should have two partitions on it 1) a small 100mb System partition and 2) a partition that is the OS + programs (Your C Drive.)
  11. was that a question
  12. Yes, if you deleted the TINY 100 mb system partition on the SSD - WHY, as it should be there.
  13. i did not delete the 100mb part of the ssd.
    it has 78mb writen in the 100mb part of the ssd.

    i believe i did not format it
