rblaes_99I always do a clean install with only one single HDD installed... then add the others in later. Windows tends to sneak files onto the other drives and I always wanted a clean dedicated OS drive. in fact, new build I don't install anything but the minimum to boot. one c: HDD, one stack of RAM. not even a video card at first. I don't even mount the motherboard yet.... all done on cardboard box it shipped in.
