the only thing i changed was i upgraded the ram and added a blu-ray player along with the extra hard drive.
I have 2 harddrives that are the same-
- Primary Hard Drive: 750GB 7200RPM 16MB Cache Buffer (Serial-ATA II 3GB/s) - Default
- Second Hard Drive: 750GB 7200RPM 16MB Cache Buffer (Serial-ATA II 3GB/s)
I added the second hard drive so i can enable RAID 0. From what i understand after raid 0 is enabled from the
bios everything from the hard drives including windows will be erased.
the 1st thing i need to know is, is enabling RAID 0 only capable from the bios and if not what is the easiest way?
I also ordered a recovery disk from xoticpc. I was told 2 different things from 2 different people from the xoticpic chat
The 1st person told me even though i have the recovery disk i still have to install windows from a different source.
i was told i CAN NOT install windows from the recovery disk i bought from xoticpc. Is this true? If it is how do i go
about installing windows from a different source? Do i have to install the same windows that came with the computer. For example
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit is what comes pre-installed on my laptop. Now
my roommate has the windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit disk. If i have to install from a different source can i use his windows 7 ultimate disk?
if i cannot how do i go about re installing windows 7?
The 2nd person i talked to said all i have to do is just insert the recovery disk
i bought from exotic pc and re-install windows 7 from the recovery disk after raid 0 is enabled is this true?
please help if you can my computer is going to be here tomorrow..(I'm sooo excieted!!! and want to get this figured out before tomorrw so i can spend the day gaming!!!! )
