Now there's 2 partitions, one system reserved of 100mb then one 119GB one. Should I format them both? I do format the drive, right? Formatting won't format it to a non SSS optimised thing?

:X

Yes please can someone confirm what I need to do - manual align perhaps?

Secondly, which driver for my motherboard do I download? There's Audio, Chipset, LAN and SATA RAID?

Why is everyone making this more complicated than it is ? The 100mb partition is for system recovery files and is normal. Windows now keep those files on a separate partition.

Reformat the drive and it will automatically create the 100mb partition and system partition. Unless you need to install drivers at setup to get something to work, I would wait until you are in windows and then do it.

Fair enough. I will proceed to install Windows 7, now with the SSD connected to my native SATA 2.

What ENTERPRISE said. Was just typing the same thing. When you are in windows, I would first install Service Pack 1, then Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility (INF Utility) and the rest of the drivers (either from CD or motherboard website). You can even let Windows Update find all the drivers for you. However from my experience they are either too general for your hardware or not the most recent.

Also, install latest Intel® Rapid Storage Technology. Note that on your CD, it might be the same driver but called Matrix Storage. It's just the old name for it. Only install Rapid Storage.

Btw, what motherboard you got?
