recently i replaced my 250GB HDD with 1TB WD10EARS. before removing the old HDD, i did these things;
partitioned the WD10EARS into 6 Parts (100GB primary and 150GB logical)
transfered personal data from old to WD10EARS
replaced the old HDD and installed Windows xp sp3 to WD10EARS
my pc started to respond very very slowly. in fact the pc started to act like pentium II running something like windows7.
i deep scaned my pc with Bitdefender antivirus 2012 and also Emsisoft Antimalware 6 but it was clean.
I installed windows xp sp3 again >>>( this time reduced the primary partition size to 30GB
same thing happened but now my pc was not THAT slow and it was an improvement on the previous attempt but not as the pc response with the old HDD that i replaced.
can u please help with the problem?
PS: all logical partition have been formated with NTFS "quick " format…while primary is formated in the regular way.
i want to mention this as well that this is my second WD10EARS HDD as the previous one had problem in the boot sector and wont intall windows ao i had to replace it (dont tell me that this drive had one or another problem on every unit)
