I apologize for these noob questions but I really want Windows 7 64bit.
I have done XP clean installs before but now I have a new machine with Vista 64. In addition I now have two hard drives (only had one before).
I will be installing Windows 7/64 on a 300 g 10,000 rpm and my other drive is a 1TB 7,200 I use for storage.
Here it goes!!
1. During the installation will the process allow me not to involve the larger hard drive? Is there a good reason to clean this drive also. (saving content to an external is not a problem)
2. My C drive is divided into program files and program files (x86). All the windows files are on the program files and all the stuff I have added are on the (x86).
Will the installation automatically create a similar layout? Does Windows 7 also have a similar (x86) portion of the drive? Do I need to do anything special for this?
Sorry for all these questions but I did not know where else to ask for help.
Will be installing Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit.
I have read/bookmarked/printed the Clean install directions. Clean Install Windows 7
Any help/advice would be deeply appreciated.
