  1. Install Windows on my slow disk?


    There are two disks in my computer: one is slow and one is fast. One of these will be dedicated to Windows and the other to my programs, bat-files and my data. AppData is put on the non-Windows disk whenever possible.

    My work is from the command prompt. Almost the entire day I edit program code (Delphi), compile and execute. I guess that there are mostly ten exe files and ten bat-files in use. My own code just read files, do computations and write files.

    My desire is, that when I work, then the PC shall respond as quickly as possible. Everyone says that Windows shall be on the fast disk, but is that true, given my work pattern. (If Windows starts a bit slow does not bother me; it starts while I eat breakfast.)

    Bets greetings,
    Ch

    :)

    Installing windows off of a USB stick

    Step By Step from vista:
    From admin cmd prompt

    1. diskpart
    1a. list disk
    2. select disk 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    3. clean
    4. create partition primary
    5. select partition 1 (replace 1 with your usb drive)
    6. active
    7. format fs=fat32
    8. assign
    9. exit

    Copy Windows Vista's DVD ROM content to the Flash Drive

    xcopy d:\*.* /s/e/f e:\ (d being your vista cd and e being your usb stick)

    And that's it, boot off your usb disk

  4. Install Windows on my slow disk?

    Windows 7 wont install drivers

    i dont think anyone here understands what your asking either when its nearly a 90% english dominated Tech forum.
    Step 1
    reinstall windows from scratch
    Step 2
    install all drivers from the cd that came with the god damn motherboard *common sense*
    Step 3
    update windows
    Step 4
    install misc etc crap like flash java etc etc
    Step 5
    Install GPU drivers
    Step 6
    go back to using your pc without issue.
