I recently bought an wd5000bpvt-22hxzt3 500gb 2.5 inch hdd to replace my laptop’s internal hdd.
I cloned the data to the new disk (windows xp with 2 partitions) but the performance was very poor.
I then read about advanced format drives and downloaded and run wdalign utility to align the partitions properly.
Even after that the performance is still poor.My question is, if I upgrade windows xp -> vista -> 7 will I see improvement
or a clean install of Win7 is the only way?
