Installing Win7 on a HDD setup for IDE mode in AHCI mode
I'm not sure where to put this, but here it is.
Using a already formatted & partitioned HDD from a older non GPT ready (if you will) MB, I want to install Win7 64 bit using AHCI. The current O/S on that active partition is XP which I want to replace.
The other partitions (two) have data on them that I don't want to loose. (I do have it backed up).
What happens to the drive when I install Win7 in AHCI mode to the other non active partitions?
When not in use, turn off the juice.
Think of someone else instead of just yourself. There is far more to it than your utility bill.
