Sean's Windows 7 Install & Optimization Guide for SSDs & HDDs - Page 204

post #2031 of 5386
Thank you for the fast reply +Rep.

So no loss in performance or anything and it will be back to out of the box format. I followed your guide when I originally installed windows so I assuming I will do the same. Also one thing that got me was when I booted up, I would see some dotted lines at the left top corner then it would boot into windows. No windows boot logo.

It should be about the same as stock if you are reinstalling from windows 7 b/c trim and GC do a good job. You can do a secure erase of you want tho, but it may not do anything really unless you have a loss in performance atm.

The multiple white lines is when you configured your system with the GPT guide and the Windows boot manager is searching for the proper partition to boot from. And the logo doesn't show maybe b/c you disabled it in msconfig like i had done myself?

The drive is less than 2months old so I won't go the s/e route. So that's why the lines are there. I can't even remember which way I went when I did it. I will be doing this tonight so I hope your a night owl cause I am. Thanks again.biggrin.gif

I think im getting stupid in my old age, because i have read through this guide a few times, Gonna have to get my wife on this one

Got my 128GB Crucial M4 today, unfortunately I will be running it off my ICH10R at Sata 2 Speeds.

i was wondering if there might be any Specific things to do for my Board Specifically and My Situation.

Would anyone who might have the knowledge of this and my Platform be able to talk with me about this?

Appreciated

Oh yea, I was going to say that is just like that thread, but audit mode is a way better way to do it. Going through all that hassle that the other thread goes through to do the same thing is such a waste. I've done it 2 times and it didn't work out right for me the way he has it set up. lol smile.gif

Also, he has not been active on the forum for quite a while so I do not think you will get a reply from him.

Did you happen to get that from here: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/124198-user-profiles-create-move-during-windows-7-installation.html

Oh snap Sean, after spending a few hours reading and re-reading over your work I have decided that I need to purchase a Crucial M4. Not only that, but now I have a reason to reload Windows on my HTPC, and spend just as much time while setting up my main machine.

+rep, thank you!
