    There are two things that would keep the old HDD from booting on the new i7 motherboard:

    1. Legacy BIOS v. UEFI. The new motherboard is likely to be UEFI. You'll have to boot the old HDD in legacy BIOS or CSM mode. That will be a setting in the new motherboard's UEFI settings.

    2. The SATA interface mode. The old computer may have been in IDE mode. The new i7 motherboard should be set to AHCI mode. To prevent boot failure, before removing the HDD from the old computer, open Device Manager and delete the entry under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers:

    High End GPU Shortage???


    Whose to blame for the shortage in high-end GPUs? Is it these crypto miners or should part of the blame be placed on the manufacturers deliberately keeping the demand up?

    AMDs RX-480/580 cards are like gold dust and fly out the retail door before they've even been put on shelves and GTX-1070s/1080s at over inflated prices due to high demand.

    I've just been reading that in Italy,..there is a shortage of high-end GPUs and even many retailers and online stores in Germany are suffering shortages too. In fact, it seems this is a Europe-wide problem with sellers experiencing problems obtaining high-end GPU stocks with waiting lists up to three months!
