Boots 4m2 06/01/2006
Initially i had suspected that the boot drive only thing may of been true. As the intial cloning of the OS mucked up shortly after completion. But thought nah that can't be right, so zeroed the drive, formatted and recloned..has been running fine ever since. Just to make the drive itself did not have issues, ran a couple hd diagnostic apps, chkdsk, etc.. came out fine.
The whole sata as a boot drive can be problematic. My nforce 2 board requires raid drivers, even when not using raid. My nforce 3, needs no other drives connected during the OS install. One must be sure the board is set to boot from SATA in bios.
But, this go I just connected this drive to a SATA PCI Host card, formatted and cloned the orig SATA boot drive, had a quirk and redid and has been fine ever since. Though am keeping fingers crossed.
none as of yet
As usual neweggs processing time and the package arrived as promised, fedex often came on the 2nd day of the 3 day plan, but hey very reasonably priced 3 day shipping that arrives on the third day, is fine with me. Now if only I could win a weekly newegg contest haha.
