Hence the sound from the HDD on restart.
All is good now.
Thank's a lot for everything.
Well good. Have fun. The 'New Volume' you can rename in Computer - very simple.

So if I set up the change in the EUFI before I transfer the OS / data over I am concerned that this may not work?
So do you think that I would be better off just changing the BIOS set up and re installing from scratch and then transfer over what I want from the old install or go with your tutorial?
John, I would love to help you and give you good advice. But since I am not using Windows 8, I am really not up to speed on UEFI. I would hate to give you the wrong advice. A reinstall from scratch should be the safest bet, but with this darn Win8 you never know.

Gary, I think the 100MB partition cannot do any harm if the HDD is #3 in the BIOS boot order. But as far as I can see on his latest DM screenshot, it is gone anyhow.

OK, back to the corner for me!

John will be using w7 but he (and I) have a motherboard which has a UEFI/BIOS.
John, I would just reinstall as normal, the UEFI does not need to come into play unless you use Win 8 really.

Ok mate to be honest I don't understand what they were on about in the first place and Ivy is working just fine as is and I have no intentions of going to 8.

So what are your thoughts on the bog standard 840 and the Pro version apart from the $65 price difference?

So I'll just go ahead and follow Wolfgang's tutorial its the go anyway

If I had to decide for myself, I would save the $65 and buy the plain 840. Yes the Pro version has better measurement numbers but not with the 4K size blocks where it counts for the OS. In real life you won't notice a difference.

I agree with this too, it's what I'd do if I were buying one.
