    Hi
    I have just purchased a 120gb SSD for my laptop .
    My laptop has 2 hard drive bays so i know i can use the ssd as "c" drive and have the os and frequently used programs on that .
    My 500gb HDD will become the "E" drive .
    So can i install games etc that im not fussy about speed wise on the HDD?
    When installing anything that i dont want on the ssd "C" do i just change the install directory to "E" instead of "C" ?
    Ive read about symbolic links etc but cant get my head round it .
    I have about 20gb of music and 10gb of pictures that i dont really need on the ssd so how or where do i move them so they still show in my music or my pictures etc , this is what i dont understand with symbolic links .
    I begining to think i shouldnt have bothered with the ssd and just stayed with my raid 1 500gb set up ?
    so how do i set this stupid thing up with 120gb SSD and 500gb HDD , or should i just shelve the ssd :(

    Thanks for the tip.
    I'm not familiar with unattended installations, but I see the keyword "HOMEPREMIUM" at the end of unattend.xml
    Should we change it to "ULTIMATE" when installing Ultimate, or it doesn't matter ?
