    Windows already does it, but I prefer to do everything myself.

    I have 0 issues with RS4 so far, so I am not worried about it or anything, I am getting a Samsung Odyssey Virtual Reality headset tomorrow I got on sale, so I am just hoping it works lol

    A question for all regarding which driver to choose for a clean install…

    I believe I asked this once before, but am I better off using the manf. drivers, or finding the most recent versions on my own? The general consensus last time was to keep using the manf. drivers (Acer in my case), but the reason I'm asking again is that my laptop has been cast aside and Acer hasn't released an updated driver for well over a year. I'm really not sure if I should just continue using them or find newer versions myself (oem, or <shudder> just use the MS versions>

    Another question for Phoenix regarding installing on a machine with 2 drives. You recommended (on your other thread) creating a 2nd partition to keep the boot files all in one place, but somebody else chimed in saying why not just put the 2nd drive offline. That's the route I've been going and haven't had any boot files go missing yet (that I know of) - and it makes for a handy place to keep all the drivers and offline installers for when the OS is finished installing. Just wondering what your thoughts are and if there is any foreseeable problems continuing this

    Cheers

    1) Get the latest common drivers like Intel Chipset, IMEI, LAN/WLAN (if they are the same models on your laptop), VGA Drivers from this thread, they should work fine on all laptops:

    MSI GT75 TITAN Drivers

    2) As for the partition, on my MSI Unlocked BIOS, I can simply disable the other drives when installing Windows and once the installation is complete, I enable them but if you don't have that option, you can either physically remove the drive(s) OR simply create a D: partition on the first drive so you'd have C: and D:, that way, Windows will ignore the other drives and just place the boot files on the main drive.

    I was under the assumption that making the HDD offline in diskpart would be the same as being unplugged (my NitroBE makes it an epic PitA to physically remove the drive). Can that D: partition just be deleted after install? My SSD is only 128GB and I don't see a need for more than the 1 partition for my daily use
