    Windows 7 OS onto a Samsung XP941 M.2 SSD

    Ok, so I've tried everything to use my new Samsung XP941 as a bootable device for my Windows 7 OS but I don't seem to be getting anywhere, is there a way to fix this issue or do I just install it on a separate harddrive?

    Have you updated your Ranger's BIOS? you will need to do so to ensure compatibility and probably download drivers for Win7 Install.

    Hmmm I've never tried using a touch pad but I can imagine it's tougher to be accurate. I don't use anything wireless for gaming as wireless can add latency. I use the razer anansi keyboard and the Logitech G500s mouse hard wired.
