Hard Drive Set up & Best Configuration?
This is a great forum. Thanks for the help so far! I think I'm almost their.
I'm planning to install 4 HD's.. 2 ssd (240 GB), & 2 7200's (2 TB).
For the 7200's, I found these..
Seagate ST2000DM001 Barracuda 7200RPM 2 TB SATA 6 GB/s NCQ 64 MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive
Anyone no of any issues using these for a hackintosh?
I'd like to choose my OS when I boot up.
My plan is to install windows on one ssd, and mountain lion on the other ssd.
I'd use one of the 2tb hd's to store my movie files, and the ssd of the OS i'm using, as my cache/render engine for editing. The other 2tb hd would be used to back up the first one w/ my movie files.
Then I'd use an external to backup my 2 ssd's.
Just looking for confirmation or suggestions on my set up as this is my first build, and I've never attempted two OS's. I'm a current imac user and will be using the machine for video editing.
The rest of the system will include..
