I am debating this week which OS’s to put on my laptop. I currently have Windows 7 on one disk (320 Gb.. just about big enough for Windows 7 and a few VMs), and on a second disk I have OSX Lion (500 Gb). I have been running Windows 8 on an external USB drive using the Windows To Go feature, which I have previously mentioned in these blog posts (this, and this) I have also previously run Mountain Lion on that same external USB drive (it’s only 90 Gb… but Mountain Lion worked a treat)
So I can of course continue like that.
Or I can consolidate, reconfigure, and recombine.
I am considering ..
- Windows 8 on the 320 Gb disk
- Mountain Lion on the other 500 Gb disk
Then the 90 Gb disk is just spare again.
The final question then becomes whether I upgrade the Windows 7 installation to Windows 8.. or clean install. Normally I completely LOATHE upgrades. So, hmm, I guess that is my answer then !
Damn I’m going to have a busy week – the last week before my house move.
