If you installed directly to the your SSD, you don't need to follow this step, but it can be helpful if you followed the XP and vista SSD guides and things just aren't up to snuff.
Hi. I just installed Windows 7 Ultimate x64 directly to an SSD (Kingston SSD Now 100V 128GB) after cleaning the entire disk with DISKPART. I have an Intel DG45ID board. I'm trying to figure out whether I need to install the Intel Rapid Storage Technology Driver
or not. It looks like a tricky install, so I wanted to make sure I need to before I go ahead.
Thanks and thanks!
