Re: Can Dell's New Workstation 3660 run Windows-7 ?

I would not expect all your current drivers to work for the new hardware. You will want to check the Dell website for win7 or worse case the windows server version that is compatible with win7 for your new hardware. If they don't exist, I would look at the manufacture of the different chips on the d...

Re: Can Dell's New Workstation 3660 run Windows-7 ?

The biggest thing will be drivers for Windows 7. If you have drivers then you should be fine to install Win7 on another drive. If not the default drivers might not behave well.

Re: M.2 HDDs - news to me!

I would not get a HD that is less than 512GB even if it is just for the OS, swap file, and other things that you in stall like Office or what have you.

I'm not sure which one will show up as C: but it should be the drive you install the OS on, probably in order down the MB.

Re: iperf full-duplex slower than each half-duplex

Right, shouldn't be an issue either way.

Nothing comes to mind unless there is a driver setting wrong. MTU, large packet setting, some sort of ethernet priority setting?

Are you on a cross over cable between the computers or a switch/router in between? Could be the router impacting things.
