In the optimization steps i have a tut...rightclick say my doc's click location tab, adjust accordingly.

Library folders are tied to user folders

Library folders in Windows 7 are actually dynamic links to other directories/file types scattered throughout your fixed disks. They are not "real" directories that can be moved.

Is there a way to change the boot order in the OS? Otherwise I don't know how to stop this loop =/

real quick in this thread.

Go into your UEFI with only the SSD attached. Turn everything on... marvel controller, e-sata (Jmicron), FULL Screen LOGO (this ones important, as it will give you more time to get into the UEFI), usb3 etc... this may slow down the transfer from the UEFI to the OS long enough to get into the UEFI. When you exit the UEFI after saving the changes, rather than let the system boot, when the monitor goes black... push and hold the power button until the system turns off. Reattach your RAID drives. When you next POST, hit "control-I" to go into the Intel OPROM when you see the screen. Don't make changes, but as soon as you exit, mash the delete key... The UEFI can be entered when you see the full screen ASUS logo, right after you exit the Intel OPROM. I think it may be happening too fast, and you're just missing it... or you are trying to get into the UEFI prior to the Intel screen.

Yep, but does it matter? Not really, not worth it in my opinion to do it.

if you want to then here: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/205905-ssd-fix-misalignment.html

Would it be wise to do on a HDD that is 90GB? therefore not divisible by 4?
