Then why do a lot of drive load and unload frequently when running a
linux-distribution but do not when running the operating system the
Verndor pre-loaded? That's afaics what a lot of people seem to see. I
had such a laptop myself (in fact I still have it, but I replaced the
HDD with a SSD last fall) and had ten different models here in the lab
months (maybe more than a year) ago that showed such a behavior...
