    [all variants] Re: Disk Setup Suggestions

    Well, I plan on running WoW under Wine, and WoW's install alone is 20-30GB depending. Of course they may have shrunk that quite a bit as well. And while I suppose I could pull it from the shared...

    This is primarily my daily home desktop system, and secondarily a place for media storage (hence the 2TB disk). Because the sizes of the disks aren't uniform, I think I would have to go the JBOD...

    1) Yes, that's how Linux Mint 15 RC 64 bit got installed (what I'm using now).

    2) No - the motherboard is about 5 years old, the other OS is Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit.

    3) Boots from USB just...

    My grub.cfg file has entries like that. It's more like whatever is supposed to be in the MBR of the USB device isn't actually there - I've done the whole sudo grub-install routine and pointed it at...

    Yes, that would be the MultiBoot that I can't seem to get to work - it installs the OS's fine, but it can't seem to make the drive bootable for some reason. Or at least that's what it looks like. ...
