how to reinstall os to ssd? - Page 7

post #61 of 82
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.[/QUOTE]

Hi, what program do u use for image please? The windows backup doesent do all your apps does it?

Like I said earlier, I use Acronis but Windows restore does your apps as well.

Why doesn't anything go smoothly??? Unplugged everything, booted Parted Magic and all I get is a black screen. I've changed SATA ports, plugged in the dive, unplugged the drive, tried every option but still nothing. Arrrrgggghhh!

It boots, but when I select an option, doesn't matter which one, all I get is a black screen. Like I said I've tried different ports, unplugging, re-connecting. Nothing!

Just tried IDE mode. Nothing!

Could it be my GFX card? Not compatible or something?

Back to the drawing board

Ummm..no onboard graphics
post #67 of 82
Two moments:

1. I have read that Windows 7 make TRIM itself when create partition: http://www.behardware.com/articles/7...d-iometer.html and http://www.anandtech.com/show/2865/2
But those tests were with INSTALLED Window 7. But I wonder about Windows 7 installer (Windows 7 not installed yet)

2. May be connect another USB-HDD, run Windows from USB-HDD, delete partition . Install and run Intel SSD toolbox... After all disconnect external USB-HDD...

We don't have onboard video.

But why should everything be disconnected? I mean all I'd be doing is secure-erasing my solid state drive. How would having a graphics card or a sound card get in the way?

If you're talking to me then none of that will help restore my drive. I have an AMD board

It wouldn't.

I've given up on Parted Magic. Might have to try HDDErase

Oh, I do have a bootable USB flash drive, so I'm no stranger to this.
Yes, some motherboards lock the drive so it cannot be secure erased, and hot-plugging it will often unlock it... so that's why it's suggested.

The magic of Linux eh? it "just works"
You could do it manually from a command prompt using a live CD of linux that DOES work (you'd need to experiment) the guide is: https://ata.wiki.kernel.org/index.php/ATA_Secure_Erase
(this is what the parted magic thing does, but it has a nice GUI so you can just point and click and not type)

Yep HDDErase supports some systems, linux hdparm supports others... it's one of those things that people never really used much before SSDs so support varies..
