I just installed windows 7 onto my 30gb ssd. I also have a 160gb wd hd hooked up that i want to use for all of my other programs and games. I used acronis disk director to create an ntsf partition on the 160 and it is drive letter E. For example when i tried to install mw2 it would not let me choose where to install it to. So basically how do i just get it so that everything default installs on the 160gb hd?

Program Dir is defined by "ProgramFilesDir" located in
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion

So perhaps changing it to E:\Program Files temporarily while you install your programs will work for the programs that wo'nt let you choose installation location.
