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.
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............
The reason I wanted a retail box was so I had all the drivers, screws, software etc. supplied rather than having to chase round and get them. I've discovered that Western Digital have an office just down the raod so I'll call in tommrrow to see if they can supply the software. A note of caution DABS want to charge me £7.50 + VAt to return the OEM HD. Their site does not give any info re OEM or retail. Beware of DABS I've seen discussions re their service and I have to agree that it's very bad at this moment in time.
As I said earlier I have today called into Western Digitals office at Ashtead & a very pretty lady supplied me with the manuals, installation floppy, ribbon cable & screws etc. Ok so I'mlucky to live near the office but thats what I call service, will I buy Western Digital again YES. Will I ever buy from Dabs again, will I hell.
