    Alright, we all know that installing windows to an SSD makes it boot a lot faster and is a great idea. I was curious though, let's say I have two harddrive and one is a lot smaller, like 250 gigs and a TB. If I install windows to my 250 gig one and delete all my other files and move everything else to my TB drive will windows boot up faster _at all_. I do not expect SSD type speeds I'm just curious. Thanks.

    I thing Windows boot up times are more likely linked to the amount of programs you have installed and the number of files your system has to load when first starting, then actual hard drive space. If you install a fresh Windows system on a C: partition, for example, while you have tons of files from your previous installation on your D: partition, it will still load up very fast, because it has a lot less clutter and leftover files files it needs to load, but it is still on a shared hard drive.
