I made a bootable USB drive and put HDDerase on it, and then booted into it and I got all of the screens and I choose Y and then it sat their with the curser blinking for 20 mins and nothing. What am I doing wrong?

Thinking about an SSD, but not sure if I want 128GB or 256GB. Certainly I'd rather go as cheap as possible, so I wonder if 256GB is really needed in most cases.

How do you guys setup your SSD as far as what you do and do not install to the SSD?

I was thinking most non-game applications can go on the SSD, then games on my fastest standard drive, then storage on the others. Is that how most people do it, or is it common to load games on the SSD as well?
