M$ is an amazing resource. Their trainers know their stuff. *consults ginormous M$ training document sitting on desk for 4K stuff*

-.- 3.5" thick w7 manual has 1/2 page of info about SSDs and only TRIM. Nothing about 4k. -.-

I'm going to re-install w7 this weekend onto my HD103SJ, anything you want me to try?
Where can I get this manual!

Sit through 20 hours of bone try technical training? I was hoping to get a free copy of win7, but all I got was this freaking manual. lol. It's nothing special, just a general overview of every feature in w7 with some troubleshooting thrown in for good measure.

Darn it- I should a brought it home.

If your looking for anything specific, lemme know and I'll check it when I get back to my desk.

EDIT: M$ knowledge base prolly has much more info than this manual

I don't have an answer to your second question, but I have to assume that Windows 7 install should... (I would guess it would be like installing with an unpartitioned disk, and the install walking you through the formatting steps), since the install program has to write to the partitions.

I am just so used to formatting with diskpart. I'll have to give that a shot, and try an install to find out. i won't be able to get to it 'till later though.
Ok, I'll be trying it when I have time also

Thanks, hope you find something

Let me know id there is anything i should add

Guys! how could you let me do this!

Check if Prefetch is disabled: Applies to SSD only
  1. Open the Start Menu, type Services.msc, press Enter
  2. Go to “HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Co ntrol\\Session Manager\\Memory Management\\PrefetchParameters”.
  3. Double-click on “EnablePrefetcher” and enter “0″ (default value is “3″) to disable the Prefetcher.
Instead of services.msc it should be regedit!

Thanks for telling me! LOL

Damn Sean. You wrote that on your iTouch? Almost 6,000 words on your iTouch? Did you never think 'Hmm, I'm starting to get bored'?
