Grats!

Just curious, but any plans on making a vid for making a junction on steam? wink.gif I've tried it before, and got as far as making the junction, but I couldn't get steam mover to work for some reason.

Nope, I just want to know what I need to do because I have 2 SSDs.

Do I plug my 60GB SSD in and install Windows on it. After installing Windows then I plug my 128GB SSD into my computer?

Or do I plug both SSDs in when I first start up my computer?

Thanks!

I just learned about SecureErase in PartedMagic last night, thanks to Sean's guide. It took me about an hour to figure out the freezing issue. My solution was to hot swap my SSD post-boot.
