(not "clean all") command on it. When it's finished, then create partition primary
(option two) on Disk 5. Hopefully you will see the SSD afterwards.
Hiyya Shawn all fixed I did what you suggested re another machine and that is where it showed up - the rest is history. Why it wouldn't show up on my main machine is very strange but there again I have a few problems there with the SSD and the older HDD playing silly devils
I also followed your optimisation tut (as always with 7) and I think I may have gone overboard a tad as the monitor looks quite stark but I only have to backtrack and add some of the smaller features that I do like to have like hover over the taskbar icon to give a "mini" pic of what is there.
I haven't done the firmware just the TRIMMING and disabling the defrag and it seems to run just fine. I wouldn't say the machine is super quick at the moment and it may be down to the internals ( I might just drop in a slightly faster CPU) but it is real nice not to have all that Toshiba clutter.
Thanks once again for all your time and patience - another hole you have pulled me out of I really do appreciate it.
