I also got this harddrive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16822144122
My master drive in the old pc is gona give out because it is making strange sounds after i droped it.
After i put in all the new parts what sould I do with the new hardrive? do i need to formate it first or can i just set it as master drive and pop it into the pc and use the system recovery cd to install the windows on it?
during the recovery porcess will windows formate the drive by it self like into different partions? How can i make it so that the partion is type is the fastest? what partition what i use, fat32 or NTFS?
