Sorry for the long awaited response, things have been a bit hectic lately. But as we speak I am typing to you on my new computer, everything is running smooth as can be, but I just now was able to sit down and enjoy it. So now that everything is running, what about the hard drives? Explain to me in depth what the purpose and how to do it and where to save stuff please. You have already been a life saver so thank you.

Some initial questions and steps before we get to the SSD.


Did you connect up the second HDD?
Did you update windows and the Motherboard drivers?
Did you update the video drivers?
What Firewall and Anti Virus are you using?
Please list all the other programs you have installed.

- I did connect the second drive
- Updated everything all drivers (i.e. Motherboard, Graphics Card, Wireless adapter, exc)
- Currently using Norton and Spybot search and Destroy

-Programs Downloaded-
Java

Minecraft
Guild Wars 2
Skype
Steam
Spybot search and Destroy
Windows 7
Microsoft Silverlight
Adobe Flash


I think that's it. I also got the second hard drive to show up when I go to look at my drives, I think its called partitioned? When I was downloading windows 7 I saved it to the 120gb solid state. So where am I at?

Hi there.
That sometime happens to me as well.

We need to finish the partitioning on the second HDD.

Use the quide again from Post #35
Select the HDD you just set up.
The right hand side will have some unallocated space.
Right click and select "new simple volume.
At #7, Accept the default size.
At #8, Choose your drive letter.
At #9. Enter, Backups/OS images.
Complete the rest of the Wizard,
Restart the computer.
Check in My Computer that you can now see all your drives.
