When choosing the drives for the image, I have no choice but to include the partition on the other drive as it is labelled as 'system'.

That is the 100MB system reserve isn't it?

BTW, can you post a screenshot of AS SSD?

What crappy image soft ware are you using? Windows 7 has the ability to image only the partitions on the drive you want. You don't need to image the other part of the other drive at all.

Ok I figured out why for the image windows wants to use the other drive. I am using Windows 7 for the image but I had installed windows on this drive before, and there remains an MBR (100mb system) partition left on it even though there is no OS. Can I just delete that partition?

Here is my AS SSD

How is it?

Your alignment is fine. Check this out first, just to be sure.

If you want to see higher benches you should run ATTO

Yea all the numbers are the same so I think it is ok. My SSD is still showing me having a 100mb system partition though even though I moved the MBR over. Does that matter? My read speed for the 4k seems pretty low doesn't it?

You can't move the MBR...

As for the speeds, it could be your motherboard sometimes chipsets can do that. Install the AMD SATA for AHCI driver and the south bridge one.

Though for your drive overall looks ok...

Look at the test on the right, it is a single disk, but this is also with a Intel system.
