I have one more question if you don't mind. If I'm using an SSD as the boot drive and the HDD as a secondary storage drive, should I format both to GPT or should I format the boot SSD to MBR and only the HDD to GPT?
I'm building a new rig and planning to install Windows 8.1 on an SSD as the boot drive. I'd like to move over my HDD with Windows 7 boot from my old machine to the new PC to use as a storage drive.
Do I have to format the HDD in my old machine first or can I just install it to my new rig as is...
