Thanks I will order the drive.
I assume all I need to do is put an NTFS partition or two in the drive and then run the ASUS supplied rescue disc to re-install the O/S before running the drivers disk? Any hints appreciated!
Thanks for the links - The compatibility guide at:
does not mention the ASUS M50Vn or any other ASUS for that...
A Hitachi 500Gb HDD model 5K500 has died in my ASUS M50Vn The replacement drive model now comes with a 'B' at the end ( Hitachi 5K500 B ). Anyone know if this drive is 100% compatible with the older model as a replacement...
