    It shows up as disk one not on disk zero. Cannot mark partition here. I can see where to mark partitions on disk zero.

    Disk 0 is your main drive, don't touch that unless you want to shrink, partition, etc. :) Disk 1 is your new drive. Right click on Unallocated.

    Had to go to 'new volume' first and from there I marked partition as active. Got it and thanks so much!

    I have just purchased an F1390. i7-740, 500gb hard drive, 8gb ram. However, I am not familiar with any of the Vaio applications on the computer. Are any of them worthwhile? I would have chosen the Fresh Start option but I would have lost the free Adobe software. Can't believe I got 8gig of ram for such a cheap price and they threw in Adobe Standard and Photoshop.
    I assume the best thing to do is just remove most of the Vaio software, but not sure.

    Thanks.

    I, personally, didn't find any use for it. I prefer to press the Windows key and type what I want to access. I think it's a good thing for people who want to know ALL of the options, but don't know what they're called or where to find them. For that reason, I think it's extremely useful.

    A lot of the software isn't really necessary. Here's what I like:

    VAIO Care (definitely keep) - ASSIST Button
    VAIO Event Service (keep) - makes Fn keys, ASSIST and S1 work
    VAIO Control Center (keep) - S1 key
    Settings Utility Service (keep) - options w/in VAIO Control Center
    VAIO Help and Support (optional, recommeded)
    VAIO Power Management (optional, recommended)
    VAIO Update (optional, recommended)

    Nothing else is essential to daily function. You can also look into doing a clean install using your recovery discs that will truly give you a fresh start. Then, you can install only the VAIO programs that are necessary and that you want.

    Question for the Motion Eye of F12.

    How many Megapixels is this camera? Is it 1.3 or just 0.3?

    What do you all use to clean the F12 screen?

    With Fresh Start theres not much to remove. You'll probably want to turn off VAIO Gate since I not only found it useless when you have Windows 7 quicklaunch but the overlay prevents google chrome tabs from being moved around. It makes all tabs undock into new windows every time you try to reorder them.

    Its 0.3. The image is not very big.
