  1. Hi Chris, Build the system on IDE, install the sata drivers with the OS and then apply the reg entries below necessary to make the drive run in sata mode. Reboot, change the BIOS to sata and you have what you want. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976 cheers
  2. My understanding is that actuator type drives (non stepper) land on the inner part of the drive. Drives that I have pulled apart have had their heads landed on the inner part of the platter.

  6. >Does any computer hardware (motherboard, CPU or RAM) have built-in power protection (brownouts, surges, spikes or blackouts)? No, that cost money >Also, is it true that UPSes - specifically standby UPSes - only protect against data loss, but not hardware damage? Depends on the UPS, you would need to read the fine print. The more you pay, the more protection you would expect.
  7. Normally c:\ but its a hidden file.
  8. I would try a defrag first. As you have the timings already, it is an ideal time to try. Cheers Derek
  9. Don't use hibernation for the moment, wait till we have finished with the BSOD's.
  10. If you are using ghost, you *must* ghost from the real hardware. The cannot install the device driver for a boot device, it *must* be already installed in the image. Cheers Derek
  11. This is the one that I used? http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/888-quick-launch-enable-disable.html
  12. Upgrade your video drivers.
