Hello, I just bought an ASUS G74SX-DH72, and not even the retailer (Future Shop) could answer my simple questions.

Which drive will the OS come installed on, the 160gb SSD, or the 750gb HDD?

If it's on the 750gb, is it advisable to install the OS onto the 160gb SSD?

Sure wish a retailer would know his own product. I've even checked ASUS website.

What I would do, in the event its installed on the 750 GB HDD: Burn recovery disks from Asus's AI recovery software. Wipe both drives, reinstall windows on the SSD using the recovery disks. Problem solved, and you'll still have your recovery partition intact. I don't think Asus would be stupid enough to put the OS on the 750 GB HDD, although I guess I've seen shenanigans before :-). As long as the hardware is there, its irrelevant where the OS is installed since you can always change it and not void warranties or anything.
