Windows 7: Windows 7 Installation on Acer TimelineU M5 (hybrid HDD+SSD)

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Windows 7 Installation on Acer TimelineU M5 (hybrid HDD+SSD)


I bought new TimelineU M5 with Windows 7 Home.

I wanted to do the re-install to Ultimate version. So i booted the flash disk, removed all partitions and was about to create new one for Windows installation, however it shows 2 disks of course: HDD 500GB and SSD 20GB.

I am wondering how does this work. How should I set the partitions so the OS still works with SSD disk to speed up the system.

I got Disk 0 which is 20GB ssd buffer and cca 500GB as Disk 1. I usually use 2 partitions. 1 one for system and 1 for data. So basically i have created system partition on disk1 + automatically created system reserved 100mb partition also on disk1.

So whats left is the reat of disk1 for data amd entire 20gb of ssd. Should i leave it or ceeate new part. for it? And add it later to primary system part.?
