I am an amateur at music technology and Win 2000, so please forgive me if I
ask a stupid question. Here's my spec:
Asus CUV4X motherboard
128 Mb RAM
2 x Samsung SV3064D (of the SpinPoint V15300 range) 30 Gb hard disk
NVidia RIVA TNT2 M64 (32 Mb memory)
Cakewalk Pro Audio 9 for recording and editing of MIDI and digital audio
Note: I am on a network with a Win 98 SE machine. I will be wanting to
access at least my documents
At present, the FIRST 30 Gb HD is the primary master. This will be
partitioned into two 15 Gb NTFS partitions: one for the Win 2000 and the
programs; the other for my documents (and preferably settings, if I can do
The SECOND HD is the secondary master. This will have one 30 Gb NTFS
partition, and will be used primarily for audio files, and will not be
partitioned. It is important that this drive is fast enough to read and
write audio files with very little latency. The CD-ROM is the secondary
I have heard that having the CD-ROM as a slave to a HD SLIGHTLY slows down
that HD. I heard that there is a minimal difference. But if I am wanting
to do real time audio - is it better that the CD-ROM is the PRIMARY slave?
Would this noticeably slow down the first HD?
Or is there a better configuration anyone could suggest e.g. having the 2nd
HD as a slave to the first HD?
Also, I chose to go for basic disks, not dynamic, so I could read it all
from the Win 98 SE machine. Is it worth going for dynamic on some or all of
I have installed Win 2000 twice now - it installed fine for both times but I
was 'playing' about with Disk Management (not a good idea when you're me - I
know that now!) and the PC wouldn't reboot. So I installed it again, but
now I've manged to mess it up again, with keyboard drivers (what am I
like?). I'm going to install it again, but I'd like a bit of advice, if
When I was messing about with Disk Management, I created some 8 Mb
partitions (stupid thing to do). I deleted them when I reinstalled Win
2000 - I deleted all the partitions, then recreated the partitions I wanted
(the ones above - two 15 Gbs on HD 1; one 30 Gb on HD 2) and installed Win
2000. But when I was creating the partitions, it insisted of leaving 8 Mb
unpartitioned space on each drive - partitons could be no bigger. Is that
normal? Or is it to do with what I did before?
I am thinking of booting on a Win 98 SE Startup disk (with ONLY the system
files, and FDisk on it - not all the other files put on a 'startup' disk),
then deleting all the NTFS partitons from there. Then I would reinstall Win
2000. Is it wise to delete NTFS partitons from Fdisk (is this Win 98 SE
Or would it just be good enough to delete and recreate all the partitions
from the Win 2000 setup?
Thanks for listening - my apologies if it was a bit long,
