that was the plan but before i didnt have the required space to backup, and now i do so
Here's a guide for installing Windows 7 on GPT:
Read it all before doing any of it.
alright i backed everything up and formatted the entire disk. just 1 more question, can i merge 1 partition with a boot partition all on the same hdd ?
i did go with the standard mbr only this time with 3 partitions. 1 bootdir, 2 data, 3 backup
hahahah i really laughed hard for like 10 sec nice.
all issues are resolved now.. thanks all, for all the help!!
If you really like to see different drive letters you could use "subst", it's a integrated windows application that makes a folder appear as a another drive/partition/etc.
SUBST is a command on the DOS, IBM OS/2 and Microsoft Windows operating systems used for substituting paths on physical and logical drives as virtual drives. (Taken from wikipedia)
yeh i know about v-drives. but my problem is. everytime i reinstall win7 i have to install F***** everything again, its like 4/5 hours work with games and such.. (not to mention Steam wich is over 250 gb download @ 600 kb/s -_-). So if i have seperate drives for like games apps besides the boot dir, then i can safely reinstall windows, and repair most of the apps/games on the fresh install, i've tried that a looong time ago with v-drives but somehow that doesnt work together..... so i have just 3 partition on the 1.5 tb and 1 on the 600 gb. for now im alright with this, but should i reconsider i can always use gpt..
Thanks for the link FordGT90Concept
