So even if I had installed a full version of windows 7 (not from dell) to replace vista (that the computer came with) the hard drive is just going to be to dell specific to put into a fresh rig?
If that is the case I might go buy a 7,200 rpm terra and use that for the main drive, slap in my 5,900 rpm 1.5T and clear the 500g and use both of those for just storage.
Now I have to go find all my dang visual novel .iso files and back them up =/
tnx for the help though.
