Default Stepped up but need to make best of space~ SSD64

I just bought a MicroCenter 64G SSD and I'm building...

To avoid running out of C:\, I'm creating Junctions in DOS before OS loads to ensure that Idon't run out of critical space.., But, I've run into other problems and they all seem due to using a 64 bit OS.
______________________________________

Problems I've experienced so far include:

DLL & Drivers not loading properly
Some Games don't load at all

I'm thinking I have two options; 32bit W7 Ultimate or back to XP Pro.

Or… well, this is what I've tried so far and what I'm thinking next;
I tried the following:
1. I Installed 7 64bit Pro
2. Installed all updates
3. Installed NVIDIA software
4. Installed all remaining Peripherals
5. Tested OK
6. F8,Restore, Build Image
7. C:\>robocopy E:\>…
a. Program Files
b. Program Files (x86)
c. Program Data
d. Users
8. C:\>delete:
a. Program Files
b. Program Files (x86)
c. Program Data
d. Users
9. C:\>junction E:\>…
a. Program Files
b. Program Files (x86)
c. Program Data
d. Users
10. Tested OK
11. Installed XP Mode
12. Installed Virtual PC
13. Test Failed (Unable to load drivers and some games/ All indications lead to 64bit OS)

This is what I’m thinking to try next:
14. I reinstall 7 64bit but this time Ultimate
15. Installall updates
16. Install XP Mode
17. Install Virtual PC
18. Test
19. F8, Restore Build image
20. C:\>robocopy E:\>…
a. Program Files
b. Program Files (x86)
c. Program Data
d. Users
21. C:\>delete:
a. Program Files
b. Program Files (x86)
c. Program Data
d. Users
22. C:\>junction E:\>…
a. Program Files
b. Program Files (x86)
c. Program Data
d. Users
23. Test
24. Install NVIDIA software
25. Install all remaining Peripherals


I'm looking for good advice from anyone who has overcome some of these issues before I go after it tomorrow:

Is this a good first approach to fixing the Drivers & maybe the configuration issues I’ve run into?

Would I be better to go back to 32 bit OS with Junctions & would they work the same in XP?

What would you do?

Bro,

Don't worry about creating all those junctions before you install your OS. Load your OS. Run your updates and then redirect your profile and program files to your data drive. I pretty much have the same setup as you but with a 30g SSD and I have never ran out of space on the boot drive. If you do a little home work before installing any apps, you should be fine.

Check this out !!!

This too...read both links on this page before you start
