Your OS does everything. You can't put the OS on one drive and have the other drive do anything but contain files that the OS can access. You can install some programs on the other drive but not all of that program's files will reside there anyway so there's no detailed...line by line...instructions available. Maybe you'd care to post your goal and a compromise can be found.
MOBO- asus p6x58
ssd- ocz vertex 2
internal hard drive- Western Digital VelociRaptor WD1500HLFS 150GB 10000 RPM 16MB Cache SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5
this is building from scratch. the parts are all still in their boxes. what id like to do is this,
I want to have my windows7 program( and possibly my anvi-V ) installed on my SSD. so when i turn on the comp, it boots up the essentials on the ssd
I want my raptor drive to do everything else. day to day web surfing, games, downloads....etc. however... i still want my OS on the ssd to be able to receive all its needed updates.
is there somewhere i can go for a detailed description on how to set this up???
please keep in mind, when i say detailed, i mean DETAILED. if someone says, "ahh, thats easy, just hop in your registry and do this, or use an elevated command prompt".... I have NO IDEA what this means.
does anyone reading know a place that either gives a you tube video or written line by line instructions on how to do this? I looked on you tube, but i dont know what to search for to get specifically what im looking for.
( secondary question ) should i be loading all the cd's i use to install parts such as the video cards onto my so called " boot up " ssd drive as well?
or should all that go on my main storage internal drive?
