Windows 7: Installed Windows to wrong disk

28 Aug 2014   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium x64

@gregrocker: I mean drivers like the Intel and NVidia graphics things that I thought were called drivers which I had to install in order to get my graphics working properly right after I reinstalled Windows, or the programs that make peripherals work which I also thought were called drivers.
I did install Linux using GRUB because there's a bug with my laptop that makes it so that boot loaders such as Gummiboot don't work.

@AddRAM: Oh, good to know, are paging files more for computers that are likely to run out of RAM?
