Tired of swapping disks while installing a new OS?
4in1's, Newest Vid Driver, DirectX.xxxxxx? Latest CPUID?

You get the idea, (I hope :eh?: )
Been messin with a install on my "Newest" mobo.
Couldn't quite get it all together and right the 1st time.

So, after with messin around collecting All the correct drivers, programs, OS, Bench mark Util's, ID prog's. etc etc etc.

I decided to burn them All onto 1 disk.
All legal stuff mind you now. Just on 1 disk.

So now, I have all my correct drivers/prog's and everything I need, on the 1 disk. Once it's in, I won't have to keep changing out the disk for 1 or 2 drivers from another disk or 3.

Now I'm sure you're gonna tell me " Yeah, been doing that since I got my own CD-R back in 1862......yada yada yada".....

But I'd thought I'd at least share it with yoz guyz NEway.

That's a really good idea, to be prepared in advance.

Any time I have to do a clean reinstall I usually have to dig around to find a couple of driver disks...
