I wanted to install my root directory and swap to a 64gb SSD and my /home and other directories/files/partitions to a 320gb hard drive.
Here's what I did -
1st, I had to set the BIOS in the mobo to IDE native- the MyLiveCD, regular livecd or Gparted LiveCD would not boot in ACHI mode, only IDE Native.
Then I installed PCLinuxOS from MyLiveCD without any problems. Well, I did have to open a Terminal and type in draklive-install to get the process underway.
On my 1st reboot, everything was fine, but the SSD wasn't as fast as I thought it would be.
So I went back into the BIOS and changed the SATA controller from Native IDE to ACHI.
It was a huge improvement! Boot and application loading times are very fast.
For those that might be wondering, here's how I setup the partitions-
Corsair Force 3 64gb SSD-
- 48gb - root /
- 8gb - swap
Western Digital 320gb hard drive-
- 97gb /home
- 117gb /storage
- 83gb /backup
