Reviewed by spex on 19/04/2014
Saturday morning and i've fallen back to sleep after being woken up at 6am by my neighbours parrot when i hear the post drop something through the letter box. Deep joy its my drive. Breakfast and a cup of tea in hand and i sat down to install it. That was 8:10am, i have it up and running at last at 23:43. Win7 install kept crashing, i tried to install it on a normall HD and it crashed again, always at the spinning/ pulsing windows icon. I installed vista 64 on the ssd no problem. Finally at 22:30 i pressed shift and F10 at the moment it said you can't run safe mode during setup and uninstalled my gpu and an unknown device in device manager, which finally let the install complete. On sorting my screen resolution i noticed my tv was plugged in, if only i hadn't been half asleep and noticed it earlier. Win7 installed quicker on the ssd noticibly now to give it a test or two.
