Question about Compaq Computers & Internet
Hi there I got a cpl of 40gb hard drives out of older computers dell, compaq etc when I plugged them into a working computer they were coming up as active partition not found, so I did a dariks boot and nook to completely wipe them, do I need to do anything else to them to install win 7 on or should they now be good to go ..
I am not familiar with Dariks Boot, but I am assuming that you formated them. That being the case, you should be able to install an operating system on them without any problems... as far as Win7 goes, it should work, but 40 GB is awful small for most current systems, especially windows needs room to move data around while it is running... if it does not have enough "breathing room" it will be slow.
Hope that helps
