I have some questions pertaining to installing Windows 7 pro 64 bit on an Asus P9X79 motherboard with an Intel i7 3930k cpu.
My boot drive and additional drives are all Samsung 840 Pro 256GB SSDs.
I am building this system to run Adobe CS6.
Should I configure my C: drive using the MBR format or using the GPT format?
If using the MBR format, should I install Windows 7 with the 100MB Reserve Partition or without the 100MB Reserve Partition?
With 32GB of Ram what size should my static page file be? What about with 64GB of Ram?
In this four drive all SSDs system should I leave the page file on the C: drive or place it on one of the other drives?
Should my source media and my project files be on the same disk or on separate disks?
I have found the following guide by Sean Webster to be somewhat helpful:
Are there any other Windows 7 install guides that you fell would be helpful?
Thanks much for any guidance you can give me,
You really don't need GPT until you use drives with more than 2TB of storage. Plus you can only boot to a GPT drive with a UEFI mobo, so I say just leave it at MBR.
Don't partition any drives.
You also don't need to worry about the page file. Let Windows handle it.
I prefer to put project and media files on separate drives.
