hi, iam thinking of replacing my hdd(2.5"sata) on the notepad to a 500gb unformatted hdd. can i just replace old for new sata hdd, and boot up with win7 disk in and choose the formatt option(ntfs),let it format then continue to install windows 7. is this correct? the partitioning i can do later with paragon. i take it that the bios will remain the same as is slic 2.1. BUT i will have to put the cert and serial back in once windows has installed. thanks for any help i have never installed an unformatted hdd before.
