Windows 7: Windows 7 installation on a HDD with Flash Cache

Windows 7 installation on a HDD with Flash Cache

Hi guys,

I don't know whether I should be posting this here or in the Installation and setup department, but anyway

I am doing a clean install of Windows 7 on my friend's new Samsung Series 5 Ultrabook, which has a 500GB HDD with a 16GB SSD (Flash) Cache (Samsung 530U3B i5-2467M, 4096MB, 516GB, pink (NP-530U3B-A04DE) | Geizhals Deutschland). It's my first time dealing with such a drive so I am wondering where to install Windows - on the SSD (Flash) cache drive or the HDD drive.

Furthermore, if I install it on the HDD, how do I utilize the 16GB flash cache which is meant to speed up the system?

Thank you,

Jure

16GB is too small for Win 7 so install to the 500GB drive. I don't know how you would make use of the 16GB drive, perhaps place swap file (hiberfile.sys) there? Hopefully other folks will drop by with suggestions.

Maybe you can persuade ReadyBoost to use it?: ReadyBoost - Windows 7 features - Microsoft Windows

There is an express cache driver available,
