Couple of ?s on my first SSD install.
Would like this procedure be as painless as possible and not fool w/ drivers.
I have decided to use 60GB on the HTPC
Thoughts on this
I would like to have 240GB for my lap top (work station internet PC) that will be another thread.
I kindof like the Adata it comes w/ a 3.5” mount bracket and I believe it comes w/
Acronis True Image HD, Disk Migration Utility
I was actualley planning on not burning a win7 OS dvd was planning on cloning
w/ Acronis (free trail).
?1.so is this Acronis True Image HD, Disk Migration Utility
That comes w/ the Adata cloning software.
Cloning Lap Top HDD and HTPC w/ SSD
my plan to use a portable 2.5” enclosure like this bottom link.
I also plan to save the files on the current HDD to the portable HDD.
I see 4 small nipples on one side of enclosure
?1.I’m assuming these are rubber screw Covers
?2. that I can remove w/ my fingernail?
?3.I’m thinking it can be disassembled and insert a SSD?
?4.Then use acronis (free trail version) to mirror the HDD.
?5.What do you Guy’s think about cloning a HDD to SSD this Man at New Egg say’s it’s not recommended. And the SSD should have a fresh copy of win7 OS.
?6. my main concern is setting the trim requirements in the BIOS w/ my clone procedure should the trim be set first before mirroring HDD?
?7.And what is the trim set to? AHCI ?
Not sure if the hyperlinks are truncated the portable HDD is the westerndigital my passport ultra 2.5” 2TB
Other is new egg tutruial of SSD.
Thanks Guy’s for the surport STB
