Sean's Windows 7 Install & Optimization Guide for SSDs & HDDs - Page 161

post #1601 of 5384
actually they are not the same. your text instruction says you dont have to manually format the drive....but in the video you are formatting the drive. Also, in the text you use abbreviated text but in the video you type out the full terms.
I was looking for clarification for that.. I am new to this so i just want to be sure

thanks

It is exactly the exact same thing exactly. There is no difference at all, both format as well, i don't get where you see that it doesn't.

They are EXACTLY the EXACT SAME THING

I simply found a way that allows you to type less and do teh same thing, the steps are the same and the commands are the same in tehsame order. They are just abbreviated.


lis dis = list disk
sel dis = select disk
cle = clean
cre par pri align=4096 = create partition primary align=4096
for quick fs=ntfs = format quick fs=ntfs
act = active
exi = exit

thanks sean...appreciate the info and the guide as well. great stuff
sorry i am such a noob, but im learning. i like to be 100% sure or at least try to minimize as much guess work as possible.

step 12 of the guide says:
Proceed to install Windows 7 and perform a normal installation using the "Custom (advanced)" type of installation. You do not have to manually format it.

in the video you are formatting it. maybe in the video you are auto formatting...i dont know

anyway...thanks for the info thumb.gif

That is different. In the installer you can manually format the partitions again...do not do that. That is why I wrote it as step 12, after the diskpart setup. That is completely different.

It's up! Firmware 0309: http://www.crucial.com/support/firmware.aspx for the Crucial M4. This fixes the BSOD bug for users using the M4 for 5000+ hours.
post #1606 of 5384
Just a side note on the M4 0309 Firmware:

Double check your Disk Drive settings for the M4 in Device Manager because for me it removed the check mark for "Turn off Windows write-cache buffer flushing on the device". So after you do the update, may wanna double check this! smile.gif
post #1607 of 5384
What kind of issues did you have? I installed Win 7 into a temp HHD enabled the cache. Rebooted and installed WIn 7 onto the remaining partition. The biggest down side is the drive is small if I use 64GB for the cache. Still loading up the system but your tips are great to shrink the size of Win 7. My thinking is that Win 7 always be on the SSD and the programs and data I use most will wind up on the cache. Am I missing something? The 2 1TB drives contain movies so I get the fast sequential reads from the raid.

I tried enabling the cache after installing to the SSD...it erased my drive and i had to reinstall. I honestly have no idea how you can get your idea to work properly.

I have a guide in the third post...partition your HDD and move the data to the new partition and delete the old.
