I am working on an Optibay setup for my MacBook Pro 17" My setup is as follows, right now I have a 256GB SSD. I am buying an Optibay and putting a 500GB 7200RPM HDD inside it. Now from what I have read the steps to installing would be taking my SSD out and installing the HDD in it's place then installing windows 7 onto the drive, then installing the bootcamp drivers as well. After that I will install the Optibay with that 500gb Hd. And put the SSD back in the internal place. Are these steps correct? Now I plan on partitioning half the 500gb hd to Mac OS x storage, do I do that inside Mac OS x or windows? And what type of partion nfs? Also is there anything specific I need to install to make sure everything runs well? How do I boot to windows and Mac OS x respectively during this whole process and for once it's installed? Thank you very much, sorry for such a lengthy post, I am just very afraid of messing something up.
