5* HDD Mfr Reload Cluster Size Windows Update Prob
Reviewed by Mr H.T.H on 26/04/2014
Bought as new drive for 3 year old laptop.
Tried a clone and a Mfr reload, all seemed OK but Windows Update would not work. After a weeks work found the problem was with the IDE/AHCI driver - once changed from the Intel one to the MS one (via Device Manager, IDE, Update Driver, Select from PC) everything works fine. N.B. Load from Windows disc works fine from load - it loads the MS driver.
Hence, if you get problems with this, suggest you try the above.

This unit is worth having / would buy again if relevant.

Suspect "load" problem is related to 4MB/512KB Cluster sizing and hence likely to occur with other new large drives.
Hope this helps.
