  1. Well if you want to try Easeus then download it, install it to the C drive, run it, select Disk 2 and run a quick scan. If it finds the old partition you can recover it with one click. If it cannot recover it then there's not really much you can do unless your willing to pay a professional. https://www.easeus.com/landing/data-recovery-wizard.html
  2. Is it Disk 2? If yes then its empty. You can try a FS recovery using something like Easus Partition Recovery but I'd be surprised if it works since the disk is showing as unknown. Is there anything massively important on it?
  3. To be totally honest, it sounds like the drive is already empty. Plug it in, boot into Windows, open Disk Management, take a screenshot and post it please. If you get any messages about disk initialisation then cancel them though at that point the disc is already empty and you'll have to try a filesystem recovery instead.
  4. Even if Linus got his hands on one he still wouldn't be able to test it in any meaningful way. These types of system need a specific workload and its up to the user to tell the system what to do, its not like you can just run Windows on it. It will probably run some incredibly obscure *nix kernel and would rely on terminals/nodes to feed it instructions. Its essentially an INCREDIBLY fast calculator (I realise that's what all CPUs are). It says right on the page, its a cluster node. Essentially it plugs into an existing system and acts as a number cruncher. You could
  5. To be fair to AMD, pretty much all claims they made during the Zen 3 & RDNA 2 launches have been proven to be true but you're still 100% correct. No company really cares about its customers, they care about the amount of money the customer has in their wallet. They're not your friend and they owe you nothing. I think the problem people have with Intel is their recent shift towards being even more anti competition than usual. Things like claiming benchmarks don't matter when they lose while still using them as evidence when they win or spending years telling consumer
  6. Hmm, actually you might be correct. OP does indeed specify 2 monitors so maybe the vid you linked too might be correct.
  7. Nope, that's 2 people using 2 different OSes with 2 monitors, 2 mice & 2 keyboards. OP wants to run 2 OSes off 1 PC, 1 monitor, 1 mouse & 1 keyboard. That is very different, it is possible but needs more specialised (and expensive) equipment like KVMs.
  8. For streaming video and file sharing the parts you have are fine. My Synology has a pretty weak CPU (its a quad core Celeron something running at 1.4Ghz) and only uses Intel onboard graphics yet it can stream 4K with no issues. Use what you have currently, experiment with different OSes to find the one you like and learn. I'd still suggest getting the newer parts eventually though, those old AMD CPUs are pretty power hungry and inefficient compared to modern CPUs. Yeah a 500w PSU is fine for that build.
  9. Your existing parts will do as a starting point. I suggest you take the old PC and use it as a learning platform before committing $500 to a new machine. As for which OS, well Plex isn't an OS, its a media server but for $500 you could get a Synology NAS and skip all the hassle of installing the OS and various services you need. Synology's custom OS (called DSM) is by far the best OS for beginners, the only setup you have to do is how you want the HDDs configured and DSM is literally like an actual OS running in a web browser.
  10. I'm not even American but next weekend I'm going to make my 2 favourite sweets. Pecan Pie (not traditional but I love making it with Maple Syrup) and Pumpkin Pie. I've made both before many times but this time I intend to roast my own pumpkin instead of just opening a tin.
  11. What was the OS on the drives original PC and what is the OS on the new PC? Linux is a great shout, it can open almost any format.
  12. I mean, an Airbus A320 has the same functionality as an F22 Raptor but you wouldn't say they are the same thing.
  13. It really isn't. Technically UEFI replaced BIOS. the fact UEFI needs a compatibility mode for legacy booting at all shows how different the two are.
  14. Macrium Reflect will do a direct disk to disk clone and is free.
