So just like any normal drive you go ahead and install the WD Black2 dual drive in your system. When you first turn your system on the SSD portion of the drive will be recognized only.


What you will need to do is download the WD Black2 software to unlock the rest of the drive. Now you can use the included USB drive, which will actually just opens the WD Black2 drive product page. From there you can navigate to download the page and get the software installed.

Once the software is installed (requires a system reboot) you will now see that the drive is partitioned into two separate drives, pretty nifty.


Now let’s get into testing!
