WD Black 7500BPKX 2.5 WD Allignment

Good afternoon!

I have one new sealed WD Black 7500BPKX 2.5 WD Allignment I want to install it as a primary system drive © instead of factory Liteon 256GB SSD (Asus G75VW). But currently I created images of my system with AI Recovery (including) hidden recovery partition on 5 DVD’s. Now as I am going to place it in my G75VW I need to instal the system as follows: http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?16557-Step-by-Step-Using-ASUS-Recovery-DVDs-to-Restore-G75 is it considering as clonning? And am I supposed to run WD Allign utility before installing OS from 5 AI Recovery DVD’s on my G75VW (Windows 7) is it considering as clonning? Thanks for reply!

Hello,

Your hard drive model is not an advanced format drive, so you don’t need to align the sectors. The link you posted seems to be referring to the instructions on how to restore your computer to factory default. When you clone a hard drive you restore Windows together with all of your files.
