eSATA and Windows 7
  

Is it good someone who has experience of this?? I am using 6938 at the moment with a registered key from MS. I have googled it with no luck all I am finding is Vista setups which do not seem to work for me.

Re: eSATA and Windows 7

I had Windows 7 just a short while, but I installed W7 on an e-SATA disk and had to switched to a copy out of everyone's "My Documents". When I installed W7 first time it was both disks connected, but I did because certain files installed on the second disk, and I thought it was lots much disk activity. I installed on W7 with only one disk plugged in and then dropped it to only much disk activity.

I then connected the other four internal disks where I have my daily Windows XP. Everything worked well and the computer started to W7. I never had any kind out of dual boot. Since one of my important programs did not work with the W7, I took it away. It is of course remain on the E-SATA disk so I would like, just change the boot order.

Does it have an external eSATA output in Windows 7? Has an adapter that uses the SATA end. Someone who has it in W7.
