I am running Win8 on a Vostro that came with Win7. My recovery partition could still be there, or not. I did a clean install and re-installed all the "required" drivers and applications; but I feel the system could be more faster.
I would like to get this beast growling again, instead of these sniffles it's producing. I am keen on spending hours on this resuscitation endeavour...from scratch.
Firstly, I would like to know the best (preferred) boot mode for my BIOS settings; I've been trying to enable 'Intel Rapid Start Technology' since the pop-up after each boot is annoying me.
If we can get this sorted, I'll be greatful for a start.
