As both a newby and a newcomer to the Windows 7 Forums, I searched high-and-low for information on how to set-up a Windows 7 installation which would allow maximum use of my HDD (1TB) for data and user profile storage.
Most of the other guides I came across (not in the Windows 7 Forums) all seemed to involve some sort of fudge which resulted in considerable registry edits post-install or broken Windows installations.
Not so your masterful guide, Kari, which, in conjunction with the Clean Install Guide
by Brink made for a clean installation first time.
My only fail was to fail to back-up my LAN drivers
beforehand -- but then all novices have to learn somewhere.
Many, many thanks!
