2GB works fine for me, try 512MB, then 768, them 1GB till it works lol

Ok I got it to work, have it set to 512Mg and I think when formatted as GPT it's something like 477Mb's recognized. But the problem is AS SSD tried to write more data than the size of the RamDisk was so it wouldn't work. Just ran CrystalDiskMark and got a cool 7400 seq/read

Ok, I finally got windows installed. Which took less than 7 min to do. I went with the mbr instead of the gpt this go around but I still aligned it to 4096. So I should have some benches of these ssd up in a little while.

I want to say this is just a Placebo effect of going from MBR to GPT, but since I went to GPT and Aligned to 4096, it feels a little snappier. My icons on my desktop do not show a blank icon and then load to the icon anymore, they are just there.

I know what you mean, the same thing with me!

I think it may just be all the optimizations combined...

Oh, and someone doesn't like everything in the guide. What's not to like? Everything I say is the safest and most efficient way to set up the OS!

I started playing with RAMDisk--at the moment, I'm kinda stumped as to what it's useful for (other than staggeringly blisteringly fast benchmarks!).

FF cache, Photoshop scratch file--anything else?

Is there much of a purpose to it for systems running windows 7 with 8GB of ram and a SSD?

I use it for photo editing, also my friend uses it for ps2 game emulators and it runs smoothly.
