I have enjoyed the forums here and learned a lot.
It was helpful when i updated my old system a few months ago.

I have problem conducting searches that find what i looking for.

Example i want info on installing Win XP on a SATA HD.

searching "installing win xp on sata drive" gets 12948 matches
searching "installing os on sata drive" gets over 10,000 matches

after 15 min of striking not so much as a spark
any advice on conducting searches

Limit the search to specific forums, ie: 'Windows parlor' and/or 'Free clinic'

I usually cut the search terms down to a couple words to start, like: xp install sata, sata install
