    Default Best setup for my HDD

    This is the HDD i will be getting. http://www.ebuyer.com/product/131214

    I will be installing Windows xp pro 64-bit and vista ultimate 64-bit. I have no problems about this.

    Which should i do?

    1. Make 3 partitions, partition 1 for windows xp, partition 2 for vista and partition 3 for all my files.
    2. Have 2 partitions, 1 partition for xp and the other partition for vista. Sharing all my files between the two partitions.
    Please don't tell me to get a second HDD because I'm not getting a second one and I know how to make the partitions and install both window and vista on separate partitions.

    I am open to all other suggestions.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    well, it's really up to you.

    but if you want others opinions, i'll have to say make 2 partitions.

The XP DX10 is kinda like a hack, it wont run as well on XP as vista, more could go wrong with the XP version and if it does go wrong you might have to reformat your HDD and reinstall windows so I think that i will go with both XP and vista.
