I always do it this way, with the two checkmarks. I probably do this at least once a week on customer's computers. Just 1 in maybe 30 times it shows bad sectors indicated or clusters and at the...

No I went to Hard drive properties>>tools>>check now>>Put checks in both boxes and restarted.

Clusters are groups of sectors is what I read. So if there were bad clusters then why didn't I get a msg saying that I had so many KB of bad sectors instead of 0 kb in bad sectors. Is the Event...

I did a scan of a tower's hard drive. It showed replaced bad clusters a few times. But at the bottom of the Event Viewer's page it says 0 KB in Bad Sectors. Why does it not list something in this bad...

Got a 320 GB HD with two partitions. C + D is how they are listed. When I do an error check of C on a restart does that include D or do I have to do D separately?
If so then how do I do the whole...

I was wondering because doesn't the boot.ini live on the Win XP HD? I guessed and set it both to 3 seconds on both hard drives. Well it works but really didn't know which HD to do it on. My 1st OS...

On a dual boot with Win XP and Win 7 with two Sata hard drives, Win XP installed first, where do you change the timing of the time to display OSs. In the first XP drive or the second Win 7 drive? Or...

Ok, well at this point it is done and I chose Raid Autodetect/ATA. I don't really understand RAID that much but I do have a perfect dual boot. So did I choose wrong?

I don't use Dell recovery media. I just install Windows from my retail CDs. So maybe we'll find someone that will know.
January 24th, 2013 02:27 AM
Should I then use Raid Autodetect/ATA or Legacy:rolleyes: in the bios for this configuration. Sata Drive 0 with XP and Sata Drive 1 with Win 7 is what I will have.

Got a Dell Optiplex 960 bare bones. I want to install Windows XP Sp3 on the Sata drive and maybe later put Win 7 on a dual boot setup. I am only using one 320 GB hard drive only for this.
