    Hey guys, after a lot of thinking I ended up getting a new Aluminum Macbook! First Mac ever, so yay me!

    Anyway, when I booted into windows the first time I put in the Leopard install disk and everything went fine. When i booted back into windows i noticed "SMBus controller" and "Coproccesser" were not installed correctly. I looked at the Boot Disk DVD, ran "NvidiaChipset.exe", and after a reboot everything was great!

    Then I ran window Experience index and my HDD is getting a pathetic score of 2.0. Just wondering if anyone else has this issue and how/if they got it working again.

    Thanks Guys!

    The hard drive in the macbook is a laptop hard drive that is only 5400 rpm. So it's going to get a low score. Only way to get a higher score is buying a 7200 rpm drive or a solid state drive.

    Yes, its a common problem in MBs. There is a thread about it in Windows on a Mac Forum.

    Apparently its a screw up of Windows, and the MBs HDD is more than enough. People have found the solution to this is troubleshoot through the whole thing.

    I forget the fix for it... but I just ended up getting a 320gb 7200 rpm drive for 80 bux and that fixed it for me... my score is now 5.9

    You have to delete all the files here:


    Then run the test again and your HDD index score should go up. Hope this helps.
