Sean's Windows 7 Install & Optimization Guide for SSDs & HDDs - Page 34

I'm actually surprised at the write speed increase and the 4k-64Thrd kind of nutty. Even the overall AS SSD score went up by almost 100, super wacky. But I'll allow it!

PS - The Windows Experience Index did not turn off superfetch or prefetch. But it did make it so it would not defrag my SSD.

Omg i figured out the offset and all the #'s!

It is the spacaing before the OS/partition on the drive you are testing!

the 2xxxxx is because there is a 4096k offset and added to it is the MSR partition and the other efi partition!

That is why when windows aligns your drive to 1024k and makes the MSR partition as well it shows as 1xxxxx!

And with the guide I have the MSR partition isn't made on the MBR partitioning so the 4096k offset shows 4096k.

So is AS SSD testing the wrong partition?

Nope! It is testing the proper one.

From the Windows 7 cd, like legit when I clicked install after I did the partition stuff. Maybe 5-10 minutes, for the install/expand files.

ok. was just wondering if doing the gbt partition over letting windows do it increased the install time or remained more or less the same.

Yea, it's about the same, just those few extra steps in CMD.

Ok so earlier today I did the restart test 5 times, and assuming my computer didn't give me an OC error, the average restart time was 27 seconds with MBR + 1024 Alignment.

I just did it 5 times in a row with GPT + 4096 Alignment:

1. 30 sec
2. 30 sec
3. 30 sec
4. 30 sec
5. 30 sec

I'm pretty surprised there was literally no fluctuation in times, it might be 3 seconds longer to reboot BUT the other advantages in my case make it worth it. Faster write speeds and faster 4k-64Thrd read time. I'll take it!
