Hi Everyone, Finally getting ready to start on the new build and have a few questions regarding HD setup and Win XP Pro install. I feel comfortable with the actual hardware build itself, but I could use some advice on the HD setup and making sure I install Win XP Pro & Drivers/Updates properly. 1) Is it best to only install the One IDE HD and then go back and add the Two SATA HD's after the Win XP Pro install and things are running stable? 2) What size partitions do you recommend for my HD setup? The 80GB IDE will be used for OS & Programs and I plan to do a Dual Boot. I also purchased Ghost 9 & Partition Magic 8 to help with the new build. Since I'm new at this can you please give a few details on how you would do it. I plan to format my HD's to NTFS, but notice some folks also use FAT32 with Ghost. I'm still reading and trying to make sure I understand Ghost the FAT32 partition bit. 3) Basically the same question as 2, but in regards to the Two SATA 250GB HD's. The one HD will be used for Samples and the other HD for Audio. Is it best to keep all Samples on one partiton or is it better to keep BFD on one partition and DFHS on another? 4) Any advice for Win XP Pro SP2 install and any other hot fixes and drivers that I might need to download? I've never used Win XP Pro and switching from Mac OS X, so this will probably be a trip of its own for me. I have another PC with Win 98 that I use occassionally, so I'm not a total newbie with MS Windows only at DAW building. Any other tips and suggestions much appreciated! Thanks! JD...
