After the last hour and a half I was ready to take a sledge hammer to this pos.
I mean seriously.
A fresh install should not be any trouble. First time. I don't know what the hell happened.
The library, and all the other things in the start menu decided to self delete.
So A new format and did another fresh install.
And then programs that I've had no problems installing decided they didn't want to install this go around.
So the 'fix' to that was a reboot, and then they wanted to coooperate.
My backup drive( Old IDE from a Dell hand me down) decided to finally brick or at least that's what I called it.
I picked the hard drive up and decided to get all lopsided on me. I am guessing the magnetic field or some thing to the effect. So it's trashed.
The good part is the ssds installed fine. Although I don't like the bracket I got. Because it places them too close together. Putting the power cables
on was difficult.
I am currently in the process of re installing the rest of the programs I use.
Back up and running getting nice speeds on them.
Obviously not the fastest on the market.
But for $49 bucks a piece on SATA II.
I have no complaints.
I left my velociraptors in place. All I have to do is hook the cables back up if my ssds decide to brick.
What a day.
