It just places the boot files on C drive. there is a good tutorial on how to reinstall, and gives the option in it to have a system reserved or not.

Thanks for the tip about Acronis, I will make sure I do that.

As for the system reserved issue, I won't be re-installing just to fix it but yes, next time I do I will be aware and decided what to do.

Your link just takes me to the front page btw.

Thanks, I will peruse that.

The Acronis thing you are talking about is "windows integration" isn't it? I should un-tick all three it seems to me.

Yes, I'm pretty sure that is it. It's been a long time so I don't recall many of the details, but that looks like it. And about the link. With an SSD I don't use the 'clean all' command. I either do a 'clean' command or a secure erase. either one will work. The rest of the tutorial works perfect. It is a great tutorial to give a good install.

I have HDErase for secure erasing, I used it last time. I had to try every SATA port on the mobo before it would work, SATA 6 or something, also needed to do some other faffing about. I printed out a nice guide for using it that helped, I don't have the link now though.

I use Parted Magic. It has HDerase included with about a dozen other Linux utilities. That, Partition Wizzard and hiram's Boot utility and you can do anything to a computer. I have those and an Windows 7 all version Installation DVD on a 16GB USB drive.

Parted Magic is on my UBCD 5, I will check it out. I recently got Partition Wizard 5 too, someone here suggested it, I like it because it has a nice GUI and is user friendly.

Yes, and it will do a lot of things disk management can't do. I'm not sure, but UBCD and Hirams may be similar, but Hirams has just about everything imaginable on it. On boot, just load the mini XP and it has all the utilities you could want. Parted magic's HDErase has a very good tutorial on the OCZ forum, but you have to hot plug the SSD to unfreeze it. It takes about 10 seconds.
