Probably more trouble than it was worth (at least that's how I feel at the moment), but the SSD is installed and seems to be working.
I think my biggest problem (besides doing too many things at once that I don't know how to do) is that I moved the 2 HDDs from the SATA3 ports to the SATA2 ports. Apparently, the system couldn't find a boot disc where it was "supposed" to be and wouldn't start up. Interestingly, now that everything's set up, I'm copying something right now from one HD to the other at SEVERAL TIMES the speed at which it used to copy when the SATA3 drives were connected to the SATA3 ports (100+ MB/sec). Not complaining, but not understanding, either.
First things first. If you haven't seen an SSD (as I had not), they're adorable. Really.
Slightly larger than a standard deck of cards, and about half as thick.
My original plan was to put it above the HDD, since there is plenty of room:
Unfortunately, I could not get a power cable to reach to that point. So I just put it on top of the BDP:
I was going to use velcro, but it was too thick and the cover wouldn't fit over the drive, so I just rolled a piece of duct tape.
I used Acronis Disk Director, which, even for a Windows program, doesn't have an intuitive byte in its program. I couldn't "clone" the drive because of some technical setting in the formatting (one of the many things I have no desire to try to understand, but it wouldn't work). It kept warning me that just "moving" the partition might not work. Well, it did. I also moved that little extra partition that Windows creates, but, by then, I was getting better at figuring out what the program wanted and I was able to get my message across (I had to create an unallocated block on the SSD first). Of course, this all required a dozen reboots.
So what should have taken half an hour took almost three. And, just to add icing on the cake, my ImageShack links don't seem to be showing up properly, so I'm afraid you have to click on the links for now. I'll update this at some future time if I can get it to work properly.
One major production at a time.
