SSD bios settings help. - Page 2

Thread Starter 
After reformatting, will I have to move all the locations back, or will that reset to default? I've been posting from my laptop the whole time, windows is reinstalling as I post.

I'll have to figure out how to disable those things when I get my system up and running again. I've become used to the Mac OS due to my college laptop, which I am now beginning to hate, but that is another story haha.

People should atleast be warned of the problems that tutorial can cause before using it, I wish I knew the potential downfalls of it, reformatting is a pain in the ass. I'm just happy I don't have to redownload heaps of programs and music.

Formatting and starting over with a fresh installation means that you get a fresh Registry. None of your old Registry settings will remain.

So, what are you talking about? To be honest, I've never looked over that guide closely enough because it's huge, ugly, complicated, and overwhelming.

I'll show you how. Just stay in this thread. Everything I mentioned is very easy to do.

I reported it. I think I've had enough of that guide causing problems for people.

To be honest, I don't know what you're asking haha. But I was hoping I wouldn't have to do all the registry changes in reverse again. It took me two tries the first time. I actually did it wrong my first try, then had to do it again to get my system working the first time. Unbelievably annoying. I was being helped by a friend who was very patient though, kudos to him.

I'm asking this:

You said "After reformatting, will I have to move all the locations back, or will that reset to default?". Are you referring to the Registry?

Yes, I was referring to the registry. Everything is working fine now, I figured out how to stop the indexing on my SSD also. Thanks again.

I've made a few posts advising against using it within the thread such as this one

The problem with getting it unstickied may be that that thread brings in a lot of hits for OCN. It was the most popular thread a month or so ago - further adding to the new users misapprehension that it's something they need to do.

Actually, that entire SSD forum is a cess pit of misinformation, as TC points out it's really simple to get the most out of your SSD. Just use it. If you want you can reduce the size of your pagefile, disable hibernation and system restore, and perhaps disable drive indexing. Any more than that is overkill.
