Question about MSI GE Series GE70 2OE-017US Intel Core i7-4700MQ 17.3" Win 8
Just bought this laptop and two mSATA SSDs. Booted up, made the 5 recovery dvds. Installed said SSDs and configured to raid0 in bios. Currently installing WIN7 to the raid partion. Now here comes the Q: I am planning to reformat the HDD and use it as my big installs/storage drive and was wondering if there are any of the wide array of partitions it has on it, courtesy of MSI, that are essential and should not be wiped clean?

The best way to find out is take out one hdd and see if it starts up.if not then do the same to the other hdd.what ever one starts your windows with out the other hdd in,then yes you can format the one that does not have any windows on it.
mind you the second hdd could have your back up installed on it.
i would make sure to do a full windows image before i format any hdd.

whats your ram speed? if it reach to 1GB then you can install. but think twice coz' it will slow down your lapto.
If you want to run Windows 7 on your PC, here's what it takes:
1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

and after selecting your Windows, download the drivers for your notebook.
Alternatively, clean the CD in + way. Means, up-down and right-left way and not circular we mostly do. Clean it with a soft cloth.

It shutsdown because your Computer is overheating so its protecting it, i recommend you cleaning your fan it must be clogged with dust bunnies, open it on the bottom grab a blower and gently bow away dust

This is the down side to OEM computer is that when the newer operating systems come out alot of times they will not give support for that operating systems on all computers. However if you know the part numbers it is easy to file the drivers you need. Also alot of time if you look at the older version of the computer you have you can get the drivers you need as they used the same parts.
Let me know the make and model of your notebook and I will see what I can find for you.

SOURCE: hi, i have a msi U100
Without a CD drive this is going to be virtually impossible to repair. You need to boot from CD with some type of recovery disk and access the MBR (master boot record) to get it back to booting properly. Sadly I must suggest you take it somewhere that has expertise with this sort of thing as it is extremely complicated if you've never done it before. These netbook style computers can be a true nightmare when they have issues! :(
So sorry about that Tim
