27" iMac 2010 Updates
Just added 32gb ram to my mid 2010 27" i7 iMac
Even though officially only 16gb is the max. 32gb from Fry's worked out fine & it shows 32gb in use
Now I'm thinking of adding a 1tb ssd & keeping the existing 2tb hitachi hdd it came with & moving my os over the ssd & simply using the regular hdd for extra storage
I have a few questions about this approach
1. My regular hdd has bootcamp with Windows XP & OS X El Cap.
El Cap will move to the ssd.
Will i still be able to boot into windows for old games even though now its on a secondary hdd ?
or do i need to go in & edit boot.ini etc
2. Any downsides to this approach ?
3.If the regular hdd is not in use & simply unmounted (this will not be a fusion setup) then is there any noise ? fans etc ?
I would expect the system to run dead quiet
