HOORAH!!!

Yes, new drive is an LG SATA Super-multi, and Win 7 is "Completing installation" as I write this! Seems to be going just fine.

Won't be long before I'm back in here I'm sure, but Thank You for all of your helpful responses. I'm gleening a great deal of other useful Win 7 info from other posts on this fantastic forum, and very glad its available. Later!
