Main OS: Windows 7 64 bit, Secondary: Vista 32 bit

I thought i would go and update everyone on my current status :)

Both hdds came in the mail, i've already replaced it on my laptop and installed windows without any problems. Right now im just installing windows updates and transferring over my files :)

Also i set up my partitions like so:

System 100 GB
Data 500 GB

Another benefit is you can move your downloads to the other partition, especially program and driver installers, so that if you ever have to reinstall windows or even restore it from an old backup, you save the time it took to download everything the 1st time
