That's correct. I usually set the system partitions as the first one on the drive and just 50GB big. Also, it's faster to backup and restore such small partition.

I own a p-6831fx and just received a x7900 CPU to upgrade. However, everytime I replace the CPU, I get a BSOD !!!
0x0000007e (0xc0000005, 0xF748E0BF, 0xF78DA208, 0xF78D9F08) etc..

I know the CPU is legit because the Bios can read it.
I upgraded the bios to 94.31.
It boots, but everytime Windows is about to start, the blue screen appears.

Formatted HD and tried to put vista and still get the blue screen once windows is about to boot. so I put back the old CPU and its running ok again.

Could it be that I have to replace the stock ram?? Help is greatly appreciated. I've checked numerous forums, and a couple said something about slipstreaming the os (but those were back then for XP os)..some also said that its because of faulty ram.

I know this CPU should work based on the testimonials and threads and that it can take socket P.

Regardless, I'm ordering kingston hyper x 4GB 667mhz. The rest of the specs of my laptop is below. Thanks again.

p-6831fx
7200rpm 500GB seagate momentus
running windows 7 64-bit ultimate (but know left it on vista 32 till I can fix it)
Check to see if you're in IDE, RAID, or AHCI. If you were originally in IDE and it changed to AHCI (as happens) just switch back. Hope that helps.

Well, I think it's normal behaviour in the last stage of FX fever. Btw, I have got two FX notebooks. Congrats Shifty on your new machine.

My 6860 is starting to shut down mid-game while i'm playing MW2. I've tried using Dust off to clean out the GPU and CPU fans to see if that's the problem, but it still happens. Is there a better way to fix this problem, or clean out the fans?

You might need to clean out the gpu heatsink. I had a similat problem once and the cleaning fixed the temp problem. Other than that it might be a driver problen

Big problem though, I installed the x7900 extreme cpu and bios can read it. However, once windows is about to boot, I get a BSOD!!!

here's a couple of things I did but still no success:
-upgraded bios to 94.31
-cleared cmos
-switched & formatted hard drives (1 seagate, then 1 western digital)
-disabled all enables in bios
-switch ahci to compability mode in bios
-tried xp and vista
-replaced thermal grease

last suggestion would be changing the ram.

Any suggestions or answers?? Once again, thanks for the help.

Well... You take off the top cover where your keyboard is to the part where you only see the motherboard. Then you take out the motherboard and clean from there. It took me around 1 hour from start to having my laptop assembled again

I was reading and found these overclocking guides. It looks like we still might not be able to overclock since we have intel chipsets
