Armada - new HD - no BIOS by bam
I understand I have to get some SoftPak program from HP's web site and create a small partition on the new drive to make a home for the BIOS. Do I need to reformat the hard drive in order to create this partition, or can I do it without affecting the current O/S and all my programs? Thanks Bryan
