This forum looks like a wealth of information. I have a laptop with win7 64bit Home but am just beginning a upgrade project on my rack mount home studio computer currently running XP32 bit with a Q6600 OC CPU. I went to Fry's today and bought a new Seagate 750 gb Momentus Hybrid Drive that I want to use to replace the current primary drive. I picked up a OEM. Win7 Pro 64 to install on the new drive. I have another 500gb secondary drive already installed that is for Audio/Samples. Since it has over 250gb available, I planned to clone the original primary HD to it for a backup. I also have a 500gb USB HD that I can use to clone the original as well. I basically wanted to do a clean install of win7 64 on my new HDD and then use it as the primary. I bought a copy of Norton Ghost to use but it actually looks like Seagate has a free APP (acronis) that will work just fine.
The reason I need to upgrade to Win7 64 is memory. Currently I am limited to 4 gb of memory. This has always been enough until I started using more samples. I plan to upgrade the CPU and MB in the next couple of months to the Intel 3770K and run 16 gb of ddr3 1600. For now, I just wanted to upgrade the HD and do a new install of Win 7 64.....
thanks folks,
steve
