How read/write heavy is Windows XP?
*If this is too software esque, feel free to delete it. I won’t hold any ill will against the party who does it.*
I have an HP nc6000 here and it needs a new hard drive (I have a 2009 WD IDE installed, but it clicks a lot as if it’s persistently recalibrating from being dropped with the notebook it came from). I can TRY and source a NOS 120GB+ IDE hard drive, but that isn’t going to be easy. I need better options and I have a few
- 128GB IDE SSD (More expensive then I’d like, but knowing what I’m dealing with it’s worth considering)
- CF->IDE (Card lifetime concerns once you go past DOS/Win9x)
- mSATA->IDE with 128GB SSD (Possibly error prone? That said, I can get the drives with no hassle and reuse it easily)
That basically breaks the drive situation down today for these legacy notebooks. I’m probably not going to find a NOS IDE drive so I need to get creative. I’ll have to figure it out, but that will be determined by how read/write heavy XP is.
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
