Tell me if this is a) Possible and b) Recommended.
Intel DZ77RE-75K Mobo
SATA0: Intel SSD 520 480Gig
SATA1: Any other SATA drive, currently ST32000641AS
I had the idea to install Win7 x64 just shy of 64GB of space for use with IRST acceleration.
Install Win7 on it as the Boot/OS drive.
Add the second spinning HD on SATA1 for programs/data.
Accelerate the spinning drive with IRST.
It seems to me that it would be the best of both worlds.
Can it be done? (before i waste my time)
What is the downside, other than the traditional warnings about SSD potential data failure on C:?
...and a followup question...
Any alternate recommendations, like:
Use the Spinning disk as boot/OS/data and accelerate that, then use the remaining partion space (about 383GB) as %TEMP% and expendable data.
