Default Re: Installed new Hard Drives Questions?

I didn't use Gparted either. most of the steps i took were a mistake hah. I looked into clonezilla first to see if the samsung cloning program is broken, because it didn't wipe my original HDD twice. and then i was like "let me just swap boot drives". Took me 10 reboots to find the key to get into my bios button (ctrl+m).

Anyway, i figured Gparted was just a program I can have on the hard drive. lol.

I must have misread one of your posts then - thought you said you had used it.

And no, GParted is a Linux-based partition tool, so it requires you to either be booted into a Linux distribution or booted off of the GParted LiveCD.
