OK, I've done the mechanical bit but since all four SATA connectors on this ASUS were full, after what was the backup boot drive
[initiated when the IDE one failed] was being used as the main 'C' drive. "BootBackup" is now just sitting in the drive cage unconnected,
with the SSD using it's data and power connectors.
I see a new version of the UURollup today.
What does it do?
Does it give me SATA drivers, for I know it is a waste to have a SSD run in IDE mode but I only guess that is what the mobo
did on its' own as I had no trouble in 2008 [yeah, time to think about a new build] installing W2k from a SATA DVD drive.
Also I envy Syclones' achievement of getting all four cores of his new build running. Which is what I want to do,once I get the cash,
is build a gamer-level AMD/nVidia workstation because for now when I download a 720p mkv file I have to convert it to avi to run on
this machine with SUPER
It would be so much nicer just to run it directly but this machine chokes, with cpu at 100%, yet when I match video bitrate to the original
and just cut the multi-channel audio to mp3 stereo, the cpu runs at 64% or less with a great picture.
I can't read BWC's blog, even with google translate. That would also solve the MDP-130's glitch of not being able to play DVDs in a multi-
core since the Windows version of VLC can [whereas in linux I have to add the CSS libraries manually].
Lastly, I'm not going to slipstream, I'm going to install one at a time, manually, as if I've never heard of HFSLip or nLite.
Right now, got other chores to do, will report back later.
I'm not even going to worry about the swap file because I notice Spybots' TeaTimer app does the same thing every 2nd boot,cpu at 100%,
while it checks everything in the system.
