    Windows Partition Booting Issue After Updating System?

    I read a lot of your guides GB, thanks for chiming in! My recommendation to anyone with this same issue will be to update your BIOS and then follow one of the guides to get a fresh setup. It wasn't worth the time and effort to go any other way imo. I was better off recreating my Win8 system...

    The Beginners Journey Into A G5 Case Mod

Luckily the screws are tough enough to be screwed in after some drilling.. You will need a metal specific drill bit ($3) to...
