how to reinstall os to ssd? - Page 6

post #51 of 82
lol...I'm gonna go for it. See you on my laptop (for the time being at least) Just running Acronis now, making a new image.

I don't know why DISPART clean all didn't work. My speeds went way down (even the WEI dropped to 7.3). So I restored an image. Speeds went back up but still slower than they should be.

you need ONLY have the ssd and whatever your installing from connected. takes two seconds to plug or unplug an ssd cable! If you have other hdd's attached during windows install you CAN when installing to ssd have boot config files go to other drives... that's why just the ssd is recommended.....

Restoring an image is way quicker than reinstalling everything! No need to mess about aligning the drive. I've done it heaps and never had a problem. All done in like 10 mins.

I understand this. But what I don't understand is why he is recommending to also disconnect the drive you wish to use Secure Erase on. I mean, why does he recommend disconnecting even that drive, and then reconnecting it once you have booted from the USB flash drive?

Is this because he wants to reduce the chances of someone screwing it up?

OCZ say one needs to align the drive after secure erase to install image onto...Im just saing what they recommend, they recommend clean installs....they manufacture the drives i go by what they say.....

As I said previously I use Parted Magic find it a doddle. I also prefer to reinstall windows and drivers, dont take long with an ssd.....and i can rest assured everything is correct....

It's because some BIOSes block the secure erase command. Unplugging it and reconnecting prevents this (not sure why tho)

Believe me, restoring an image has no ill effect, it's already aligned and is far quicker (installs the OS, drivers and all apps) but do whatever you think is best.

Oh damn, I'm glad I asked. Now I'm definitely doing it exactly as he recommends.


Edit: It's just that sometimes a fresh install is better. For example: I might be doing a fresh install later today because I'm having some odd, but very minor problems here and there. So, I most definitely don't want to save this installation.

Yeah, if there are problems then you wouldn't restore.
