I'm primarily a computer and photography enthusiast, but I have a variety of other interests as well, from video games to fountain pens. I take the accuracy and correctness of my contributions very seriously; if there are any problems with my posts, feel free to edit them or let me know in chat if you have any questions or comments.

As a photographer, I use a Pentax K-5 (as well as a K-r as a backup or secondary camera), with a small selection of Pentax lenses. You can also find me on Pentax Forums.

Note that I'm not really into tabletop RPGs. I simply felt that this image suits me best.

That's certainly not normal for a WD Black drive. Is the storage driver using Native Command Queuing?

You really should be using virtualization software at this point. Virtualization technology simulates a computer running on top of a computer, so you get much more control and flexibility. I personally use Client Hyper-V, which requires Windows 8.1 Pro. You can also look into VirtualBox.

comment Why does my MagSafe power connector only work one way round?
This has nothing to do with the question. It's not a missing ground pin at the socket. It's failed power pins at the device end of the AC adapter, where the working voltages are safely low.
