As for Windows 7, I'd put that on the WD1002FAEX so you can RAID your identical drives. | Report abuse JackNaylorPE December 31, 2010 4:49:18 PM I'd put the OS and programs on the WD and put the matched drives in RAID 1 for reliability | Report abuse Aname January 7, 2011 8:48:55 PM Well I raided the hd103's and installed win7 on them, using wd1002 for backup. We'll see how it goes. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>How to configure drives on P6X58D system> Related ressources: ForumAsus P6X58D , i7 920, 4 gig DDR3 1600mhz Ram, how to configure properly ForumNew i7 Asus p6x58d system slooow during first boot: any suggestions?
