Thanks for the quick response. But I'm still confused. My cd drive is D: and my usb stick is H:. So, in cmd I typed in D: cd boot and now the cmd line looks like this


C:\Users\Me>D: cd boot

D:\>

It doesnt say windows 7 like the example's. Sorry if this is a stupid question, I dont want to make a mistake.

EDIT: Nevermind, I figured it out.

I'm back again, and I need some more help (surprise, surprise. tongue.gif) Anyways, I got everything working with my brand new rig. Windows 7 is installed on my OCZ Vertex 3 and its fast. But, now I want to make sure all of my games and other files stay off the SSD, and go to my 500GB Mech. drive. I'm not too sure on what to do now. Once again, I'm sorry if this is a stupid question, but I'm a newbie so please bear with me if my I continue to ask silly questions. redface.gif
