Windows 7: SSDs and reinstallation

SSDs and reinstallation

The first time I installed the Windows 7 RC it took no time at all on a standard velociraptor but when I changed over two a pair of SSDs running in RAID0 I had all kinds of problems. Mostly these problems seemed to relate to proper partitioning of the hard drives as if I got Vista to partition them then Windows 7 would install fine.

Anyhow the question is, now that I've got everything partitioned right with the wear levelling section etc etc, am I going to have to do this all over again when I install the retail version or can I leave the whole set up as is and let Windows 7 hopefully detect and use the wear levelling partition correctly?

it shouldn't be that big a problem.
you might want to load some hard disk drivers in the windows 7 install process though. Backup some hard disk and RAID drivers on a usb and click on load driver during the windows 7 instllation. Navigtae to ur drivers and use these drivers instead of the ones in the install disk
good luck
