I have a L502x, FHD screen, with i7-2630QM, 4GB memory and with an 128SSD in the main HDD compartment and the regular 500GB HDD in the caddy. I am going to make a full whipe of both disks to fully reinstall everything. I want to make the following configuration:
- Windows 7 on the SSD
- OSX on the HDD in the caddy
I am not at my laptop right now, but if I'm right I'm running bios A11
(I have an Intel Centrino Advanced-N 6230, but I have a WiFi dongle that works with OSx)
First of all, is this configuration possible? Windows on 1st drive (SSD) and OSx on the 2nd drive (caddy - HDD)?
What would be the proper order of installation? First windows? (I guess so because the L502x has troubles booting from caddy. Or I should need to swap the harddisk drives during installation)
And what method mentioned on page 6 is the best way to go? I have tried it previously many times but they all failed or semi failed. But I will use an other USB stick this time (a real one, not a SD-card in a reader) And a friend of my has a new Macbook Air, so it will be a lot easier to make the USB stick.
And last, how should I configure the 2nd hard drive for OSx? Only 1 partition for OSx or more? (It has been a long time ago, but I remember you can install OSx on just one partition or make some additional partitions right?) And I would like to have the rest of the drive for data storage (mainly Windows, but it can't hurt if it works with OSx too. It needs to be able to store 4GB+ files)
