5 out of 5 eggs XP Pro Will Work Sometimes If You Use SP2 CD 03/04/2013

This review is from: Intel BOXDZ75ML45K LGA 1155 Intel Z75 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard

Pros: This is just a note in reply to one of the reviews about this nice new Intel board and Windows XP on newer boards - I build a lot of systems and noticed that XP Pro SP 2 CD will install on many new motherboards because SP 2 for XP had newer drivers as part of the install as compared with just an XP Pro CD with no SP or a SP1 install CD - I was getting a blue screen after an install using an XP Pro SP 1 CD but all works perfect using a SP 2 CD - same key BTW - hope this helps a few out there

Cons: None

1 out of 5 eggs WD Passport Elite Unwanted Software 09/10/2010

This review is from: WD My Passport Elite 500GB USB 2.0 2.5" Portable External Hard Drive WDBAAC5000ACH-NESN

Pros: Western Digital normally has a nice product line for external drives - I have used the older Passport drives working as a network admin for backing up files or using as a nice PE imaging solution - I love the older units

Cons: This new iteration of the Passport however comes with software that you may not want if you are looking to just store data AND the new sofware cannot be simply deleted as with past Passport drives - their install program will pop up everytime you plug in the unit - you can download a firmware update and then disable this unwanted software if you are technical enough and have the time - I checked this morning and the software which you cannot delete takes up 500MB on your Passport drive

Other Thoughts: Lastly Western Digital did not clearly label the box that there is backup software included that you will not be able to delete if you do not want to use it and that every single time you plug in the unit to your PC the software will try to install - this warning of course would discourage almost everyone from purchasing the new iterations of the Passport

Other Thoughts: Lastly Western Digital did not clearly label the box that there is backup software included that you will not be able to easily delete if you do not want to use it - this warning of course would discourage almost everyone from purchasing the new iterations of the Passport
