You're on the right track now phaseshift!! Let us know how the install goes. I've always been on the fence about an SSD and now that I have my C300, I wonder how the heck I ever lived without it. Good luck!

This is my plan of attack


- Connect SSD in my first Sata 3 slot and disconnect any other HDD
- GO into bios to make sure AHCI is enabled
- Install Windows Ultimate 64 and update all necessary files
- Once done, connect the spinpoint f3
- Follow this guide http://www.overclock.net/ssd/664738-...secondary.html
- Connect my OLD HDD and move files from OLD HDD to Spinpoint f3

how does that plan of attack sound?

I have used this guide twice and both times was a lengthy .... I since have not used it and through using wise decisions when uploading things to my rig (ie choosing where they go and what drive they go on) have found using this guide to be senseless in the fact that if you have the confidence to be editing registry, then you surely have the common sense to locate files where you want them in the first place.

Save yourself some headache... as if the drive you assigned all this too ever hickups... it will break windows. I know as it happened and caused a reinstall to be needed.

this is true, I just really wanted to use the SSD as my boot drive, I got too much into and made it so complicated.

I'm going to reinstalling windows, I already install useless programs on my old HDD in seperate partition. So I know what needs to be put in the SSD and what not to.

Although Shirza's guide is very good, I don't think its necessary for me but I will follow this guide after installing windows:
