Dual boot.
Wish I had the hard drive space to do so. This old dog couldn't hold it even if it had the entire hard drive to use.

I'm sure it needs to be on its own hdd anyway.

I'm just going through the last bits of install now

This is why I always keep a couple of spare hard drives on hand. Often times, mounted right in my box. I just pop off the side, move a cable and run from the test drive. My desktop at work has 4 hard drives...and I wish that I had a few more.

I just started my download again, I decided to re-configure monitors and messed the first d'l up, so I've started again from scratch.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
 
 

What I want to know about is the upgrade path from Version I to Version II. I assume it will require a clean install going from x86 to x64....but, will the data files play nice after the upgrade or need to be rebuilt from scratch? Wondering about the cost also. Guess we will just have to wait and see.

7600x64 ultimate, not SP1
 
 

Pretty excited about this, I'm building a PC with WHS right now to work for backing up media and a fax server for my home business... Plus Vail is the best place to ski I've ever been.

I think it needs its own system, I was going to "multi boot" it with Win 7 and got this and had to back out as it said it would delete all the data on the primary HDD.

Geez, I can't even add it in VB, it needs a 160GB HDD to install. What a PITA!

I don't really want to un-hook my other HDDs.
