  1. yes the bcd was installed in the usb key. no I wont need the caching anymore. but its a PIA to remove the Half mini pci card.. I was hoping there was a way around it.. there is no option in the BIOS for that unfortunately..
  2. I have a samsung NP530, it has a 16GB caching drive, which unfortunately I could not remove. anyway, I installed windows 7 onto the newly installed SSD, but if I remove the USB installer (which I had used Rufus to make), it will refuse to boot, saying BOOTMGR cannot be found. Only when the USB key is in it will boot. I tried to format the 16GB caching drive as drive R and the SSD as drive C, but sitll the same. Even worse when I run startup repair it will say windows is in drive D... Help, im so confused regarding this already... Thanks
  3. Has nobody made this yet?
  4. i have made a clean install of 98SE, then installed all drivers, as well as dx9.0c. I am unsure if i should install the Unofficial Service Pack 2.1a (Gape's) or this Native USB Drivers. What should I install first? or is the order unimportant? Thanks!
  5. hahah gigabit may still be a long while, i have to get those new intel mobos with CSA. yeah when i used 100mbps full duplex it slowed a tad bit slower, however only a few hundred kilobytes per sec... i just want to know what the problem is.. its one of those things u just want to know... hahah
  6. ive done it, set the 2 NICs to 100Mbps Full Duplex, however the problem is still the same. Even changed Switch to DLINK, same figures. im stumped.......
  7. Guys, I’d like to ask for your help!! 1. Test your connection between two computers 2. Indicate the protocol you used and what windows version(as well as hardware configurations, hub/switch/router, cabling, network interface card, hdd etc) 3. Use FreeMeter’s Disk throughput monitor ( (it’s a freeware) to test how fast files get transfered between pcs 4. Indicate the average disk activity Im having problems, and I’m trying to isolate what the problem is. I have 3 computers at home with a CNET 8-port 10/100 network switch all connected with Cat5e UTP cables. The NICs are: CNET 10/100, D-Link 10/100, and Intel Pro 10/100. I’m also using IPX/SPX (NWLink), with File and Printer sharing unbinded from TCP/IP (I cant use TCP IP to share files since I have multiple IPs – my ISP gives 3 of them for free for one account). Now, I usually get only 5~6MB/s transfer speed, even if everything’s set at full duplex mode. A few days ago, I tried to isolate the problem. I made a crossover cable and connected two pcs together. I didn’t change the protocols and I STILL get 5~6MB/s transfer rate. I thought maybe it’s the fault of the IPX/SPX protocol so I removed them from both computers and I used Internet Connection Sharing to connect the two computers. I get a SLIGHT improvement about 6~7MB/s transfer rate. And then I also tried to use Network bridging but its speed is 6~7MB/s. I tried to use both CNET and DLINK to connect to the Intel NIC with no difference. Why can’t I get the speed to at LEAST 10MB/s???? 100mbits/sec is 12MB/s so where is my problem sourced??? Am I the only one experiencing this problem? Or what? Any suggestions people? Thanks! btw, All computers use Windows XP. With P3-933MHz 80Gig 7200RPM HDD and a Compaq 2800AP 1.4Ghz P4M Laptop.
