Now, for the ultimate question: do I move the page file to the SSD or do I leave it on the secondary drive? RAM is no issue and the page file is a just-in-case precautiony scenario.

Pagefile on SSD but reduce it to 1GB or so. Firefox loads pretty quickly for me. Maybe you have a ton of add-ons installed?

Yeah I do! AddBlock Plus, Ghostery, BetterPrivacy, Disconnect, DoNotTrackMe, NoScript... There's a few more, but those are the big ones. The bloat is mostly my fault, so I accept it.

Ok, then i do Normal Windows 7 install
Thanx

Hey all - 2x 830 and 1x 840 owner here, all 256gb kind. I'm reading thru Sean's guide, and I'm in this situation. I have a non-booting 830, and until I get a chance to look it over, I'm afearing that I may have to take the 830 out and place it into one of those startech docks.

So I have read that Secure Erase is what I do first, before initializing and formatting this ssd, and am wondering if I've got it wrong. I've never had to redo an ssd for a Win install. I have read that the traditional formatting is to be avoided.

I'll clear cmos and all tomorrow when I get a chance, see if I can get into bios, or get a bootup. But any infos/help is mucho tomako !

i just got myself a Samsung 840 Pro 128gb! i had almost forgotten how awesome SSDs are since I switched over from my laptop (with an Intel X25-M G2 80gb SSD) to my new desktop (initially without SSD for budget concerns).

so, i used Samsung's Data Migration tool to move my OS from the HDD to the SSD. i don't have the luxury of time to do a complete re-install and i want the drive to be usable as soon as possible. i was just wondering if the alignment is correct. this is what AS SSD says:



also, there's a 400mb "Data" hidden partition at the start of my drive, is this supposed to be normal?

Assuming you used GPT, yes, I believe so. For MBR, the system reserve partition is usually just 100MB.
