I have been told by people far more knowledgeable than myself that if I wish to install a additional HD I should buy a retail boxed unit. Trouble is search as I may I cannot find anyone selling them. I ordered what I thought was a retail unit from Dabs but it's arrived & it's an OEM. Thanks.
Newuser2 I bought my Maxtor hard drive in PC World. Not the cheapest option but, as I a newbie I thought it worth the extra cost to get full installation instructions, and support if I needed it. Good luck Norman
The only difference with OEM is the fancy packaging & sometimes manual & drivers; if you buy OEM you can get all info from the HDD makers' sites plus software & PDF manuals. You save with OEM in the long run. :-)
I recently bought a 120GB HD from PC world, boxed and complete with installation software which includes partitioning, just like NormanD, and now I have 5 drives to my system. Regard Bretsky............
