Hi. This is a totally noob question(s) but I gotta ask. I just got a new mac pro and some new hard drives too. I want to use one of the new drives as my startup drive so I need to format it but I'm not sure how. When I go to disk utility help there are instructions for just about everything else but this. I want to use the new drive as a startup drive and maybe partition it and put Parallels or Bootcamp on it too. Is this a good strategy? Meaning is it OK to put Parallels etc on another partition on the startup drive? Or should it be on a seperate drive? I don't have Parallels yet so I'm not sure how much space I should partition for it. Let me put it like this: How do I - 1. Format a drive. 2. Partition a startup drive to have OS X & Parallels or Bootcamp on it & how much space for each partition. The new drive is a Samsung F1 750 GB. 3. Move everything from the original startup drive to the new drive (I have SuperDuper - is this a good way to do it?). And then erase the original drive to use in another bay. Sorry for the dumb questions & I'm hoping this is posted in the right place. Thanks for any help! Detail is good.
