Good choice, you can always add an additional HDD in the future should you need to.

 

When you do the fresh installation of Windows 7 I would suggest that you create a separate 150GB partition for it, this will speed up your boot times and help to protect Windows from becoming corrupted.

 

You are welcome btw  :)

Hey...

Need help. Bought the HDD.

Installed windows and programs(Check speccy below).
Tested a game that I play on ultra with like 150 fps. I had like 40 now and even less. And one more thing: I wasn't able to do windows update.(I firstly used win 7 unlocker that added plenty of crappy programs and so). So I thought it messed it up. Then I did a clean reinstall, installed the main programs such as java/adobe flash/amd/gpu driver and it was checking for like 30 mins and popped up an error 80244019.
I also thought maybe Win 7 without any updates wasn't compatible with the size of 1TB. The previous was just 160GB. Now I made System 150 GB© and normal 800GB+ (D).  Made 3rd reinstall. Installed just my etherned driver and instantly tried with the Windwos Update. Infinite loading. Can my flash be messing up or the HDD kinda broken? But would it even install then? I just switched to my old HDD and the performance is nice again, no problems. (In the 160 HDD I used the same OS from the flash....)
Should I even waste my time or simply download some Win 8.1...
P.S. Yes I used the driver booster, thought maybe I skipped something. Was still the same.

To see if this is a Windows issue download then run the All in One Repair from here, disregard the malware guidance but follow the other steps to the letter and in particular ensuring that you first create a new restore point and perform a proper Windows clean boot before running the repair, details for the clean boot here.

Hey Phill!

It's been a few days, sorry for the delay. I got 8.1 on my new HDD. It seems to be working all well now.
I'll send you speccy just in case if I forgot something.

Hello zapuxas098,

 

Looking good now  :thumbsup:

 

Couple of suggestions;

 

Create a new restore point.

Install all important Windows 8.1 updates.

Enable Windows Auto Updates.

Download MBAM (Free) and run it every now and then.

Get rid of the following scheduled updates.

 

Scheduler

12/1/2015 3:24 AM;: Adobe Flash Player Updater
12/30/2015 9:36 AM;: klcp_update

Samsung Evo's are a great choice of SSD's. I consider getting a 700w PSU as they're only $70.

Hey there, it has been a while. So the new HDD is running well as it seems.
I've downloaded the MBAM
Did all the Win updates

But how do I remove scheduled updates? I think I disabled the Flash player one, not sure about K-lite.

I bought a 500W PSU silver rated not a while ago. For my system will be enough as it seems. Better than a cheap 700W for 70$ I think. Pretty much paid that for the 500W one I got now.

Windows Control Panel > System & Security > Administrative Tools > Schedule Tasks > Task Scheduler Library, manually set it to never for K-lite.

Thank you, disabled it all. Is it fine if I am running both: MBAM and SUPERantiSpyware? Or would MBAM be simply enough?

Good idea to have SAS alongside MBAM, if you need any reassurance were system security is concerned take a look at the tutorial provided courtesy of admin here 

 

You are welcome btw  :)

Good to know, so I'll keep SAS and MBAM. I did read the post you gave me but yet not sure if I should get any bonus security...
