Sean's Windows 7 Install & Optimization Guide for SSDs & HDDs - Page 304

post #3031 of 5384
So I am up and running, but sadly can not explain why or how it came to be.

I installed new firmware. No go.
I installed the latest BIOS. No go.
I then ran clonezilla and copied windows from my HDD. Forgot to copy the boot partition so of course it didn't boot.
I booted to the Windows disk to run repair. It found a boot problem but failed to fix it.
For poops and grins, I decided to try one last time. I run the installer, and it goes through.

My Kingston Hyper X 120gb SSD score is down for some reason. I followed the guide after I had to do a reinstall but now I am getting 7.8 instead of 7.9 in the W.E.I. I went in and deleted the WinSAT and etc, but the score remains 7.8 from a 7.9. IS my SSD damaged?

the mother board she chose is asus p8h77-v le
she only wants windows 7 and office 2010 and WoW on the ssd and of course i will put
nvidia drivers on there.
then she has me installing 2 500gig hdd's as all she does on her computer is WoW
and the other drives only have photos and photo software as she is a photographer.

Yep lol.

Just make sure you plug the SSD in the white/grey port.

great.
thank you
one more thing the board she has the ports are blue or white, the white is the 6.0gbs and the blues are 3.0gbs.
i read people have a haed time booting from the 6.0gbs ports but i think that was with the X58 boards.

Yea, use the white SATA 6Gb/s ports. They are native to the chipset so you will not have an issue as X58 boards hard. They gave issue because the SATA 6Gb/s ports on them were by a 3rd party controller and needed the drivers to be loaded to use them.
