    SATA AHCI

    Somebody asked me to install Windows 7, 64 bit on their brand new PC. i5, asus p7p55d-e In BIOS there is a setting: Configure SATA as IDE I wonder whether I should leave it as it is. I think it might be a better idea to set it as AHCI? Thanks!

    However, there is one thing that worries me. With USB, when you want to disconnect device you have an icon where you tell which one to Safe Remove. What about hot swappable SATA HD? I have no means to disconnect it via s/w.

    Portable USB HD

    I don't want it to be in the case permanently. I must be portable, so I can take it with me to work and so on. I have 320G WD and I like it very much, but I formatted it to get rid of their s/w.

    creating admin group in Windows Server 2003 domain

    I am just too ignorant/stupid. The idea is: I create a group and add users to the group. Not necessary admins. It might be Power Users. I can create new users and go to their properties and add them to Power Users. But instead of doing this to every new user, I thought I might add 10 new users...
