Also lets say I want windows 7 and windows xp, do i keep it on the same hard drive or but another one.

Also with the guide I dont think you mentioned with the 1TB do you need to partition it, because i remember that If it is 1 TB it causes problems.

I would recommend putting Windows on a separate drive.

The problem is with drives larger than 1 TB.

!) Yes if it's the first boot drive
2) Use the Intel ports, I don't remember the color off the top of my head
3) I've been busy and just threw this together. As soon as I get time I will post pictures and more details..

Re: MacMan Build - GA-X58A-UD3R - i7 930 - HD 5770

Hi,

I am using the same mobo, all looks fine except that after waking up from sleep, my keyboard suddenly becomes uselsss, I have to unplug and re-plug to make it work again.

2 things I have tried,
a) wake up with mouse -> wake up with keyboard not working
b) wake up with keyboard -> -> wake up with keyboard not working

What could have been wrong here? Can someone point me my mistake?

Thanks in advance.

i have had some random dropouts of the keyboard as well i just ran the cord to a front panel USB for now.

edit: most of my keyboard dropouts have been in the bios i have never had any dropouts while running my system.

thanks again for the info here, its a screaming fast machine. I put a crucial C300 SSD in it and its the fastest mac that i have ever used.

here is the latest geekbench score.
http://browse.geekbench.ca/geekbench2/view/312933

its a really amazing machine. i am using a H50 cooler and a fairly cold location for the machine. i am about 75º when running prime95 for a few hours and i have been running Rembr at the same time while working in lightroom, email, itunes and transmission to see if i can get it to crash. so far so good for the past few hours.

I also bought a Firewire 800 card from newegg that works perfectly out of the box (no driver needed)
(the card has a power connector that i have not plugged in yet) but it works with 2 drives and a card reader attached.

3 FW800 ports

+ the new usb drivers from Lacie this turned into one seriously great sub $1700 computer
