I like Win8 and the Metro interface. It's faster than Win7 on my computer.

install 64-bit Win7 on 32-bit XPS M1330 laptop?

Tim,

One of my computers is a lot older than yours (it has a Pentium D processor)
and Win7 64-bit runs fine. I didn't install extra drivers as the ones in
Win7 were adequate.

Many thanks for that. A mate plans to buy a Dell laptop in the next few

XPS laptop with mSATA card

Can you turn off the Intel Acceleration and make the mSATA card "available"
as a normal drive so its partition shows in Disk Management? We'd prefer to
not use it as a cache.

Thanks.

I assume the answer is "No".

But why not? SATA III has been around for a few years.

SATA 3 motherboards

Does Dell make any computers with these motherboards? The computers I looked
at mentioned SATA 3.0 and a Dell rep mistakenly told me that it meant SATA
3.

I don't bother hiding the SSID as it gives you no extra security. No-one is
going to get past your WPA2 even if they sit outside your house for a few
years.

Joe,

Have a look in Disk Management. Is the Recovery Partition the Active
partition? The Active partition contains the booting files.

You should have a Utility partition on the HD. Run the Dell diagnostics.
