That seems to be what I am going to have to do. Actually in between you replying and me running to COMPUSA, I had bought a new copy, and now I am in the process of reintalling... had to dump all the files on there, but I think I have most of the movies and what have you on an external. Now that I have done this I am half tempted to get the SSD that I have wanted for awhile and just partition the HDD for storage, would I have to reinstall windows using the same disk, or buy a whole new disk? Also, is there a difference in the 6 Gb/s and 3 Gb/s SATA cables that came with my motherboard? I have been told no, it is just a marketing scheme, but I just don't want to use the 6 Gb/s cables if it will not work properly with my HDD.
Okay, so that worked. I was actually back home reinstalling windows when I read this but I thank you. One thing I did have a question about was does the 6Gb/s SATA cables actually run at that speed or is it dependent on your HDD? Also, if I were to upgrade to an SSD like I wanted to, will I be able to use the same copy of the windows that I just purchased when I try and put it on the SSD and use the HDD for storage or will I need to purchase another copy?
