  1. Hi :)

    Just use your LEGAL disc...

    All the best Brett :)
  2. If the OEM version hasn't been installed on another system (it would be tied to the motherboard), yes you can. But installing an operating system on a green drive isn't a good idea. Generaly, they are slower and less responsive that regular drives. And some of them go into sleep mode when not having been accesed for awhile.

    Thanks I already loaded it and it went just fine except I have a lot of unalloated space how do I allocate the extra space. Its huge.
  4. I loaded and extended my new hard drive 3 tb and now have my space. Windows 7 has a extend command under disk management.


    Thanks for all your help.
