Excellent idea!on starting the install process, watch for the "CUSTOM INSTALL" button at the beginning. This allows you to select your install location ( like D:\FSX ). If you miss it here, it will install in C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Flight Simulator X; this is the default (and worst) location with Windows7. Other than that, follow the normal install process.Boot up FSX. shut downInstall SP1Boot up FSX. shut downInstall SP2. Boot up FSX. shut downDefragstart adding the extras as you need them.Loyd
