Another Science Experiment
Took that old Vista computer pulled the HD.
AMD x64 3200 2gb ram
Gigabyte GA-K8NSC-939 MB
Popped in a preformatted SATA 1tb Hitachi HD.
Inserted Windows 7 Ultimate DVD burned from TechNet download & booted
Smooth as silk install.
Ask for Key, I typed in my subscribed Key from my Technet subscription.
away it went, took about 30 minutes.
Activate now, Sure
Just need to order some more ram for this computer
Nothing difficult about installing Windows 7 on a pre-formatted HD
