For the Microsoft security essentials...

Did you disable the behavioral monitoring? That slows the system down pretty hard. Also network inspection.
Regular real time protection shouldn't hurt performance at all.

I have everything enabled in MSE and there appears to be no slowdown...

I guess I can try a couple things then.
1. Try to convert the SSD from GPT to MBR and then restore from the Win7 image
2. If #1 fails redo the install completely with an MBR parition this time on the SSD and start over from scratch with the software installs and updates

Crap. I can't seem to make a bootable recovery disk. I've gone through 3 disks so far and it burns successfully but when I attempt to boot from it, it says that it's not a bootable disk... mad.gif

Edit: I give up. I think I'm just going to do a complete wipe on the SSD, convert it back to MBR, and go through the pain of reupdating and activating programs. mad.gif

post #2219 of 5384
So if i just got a brand new crucial M4 the box says FX030902.. that would mean i need to upgrade its firmware right?
If im just about to install it do i plug it into my computer then update the firmware then reboot and start installing windows?
And lastly if my bios saays ide at the moment i have to switch to ahci from the Mobo and then install windows?
Or is there an option when installing windows that says ahci or ide and you have to choose?
post #2220 of 5384
Switch to AHCI before installing. While the 0309 on the box probably means 0309, the firmware version is clearly printed on the SSD sticker. If it says 0309, which is probably the case, then there's no need to flash any firmware smile.gif
