Windows 7: Looking for Help with a SSD install

The 128GB drive you have to align and allocate a partition. The procedure is explained in my link in post #5. But you probably do not want it "active".

Looking for Help with a SSD install-capture-1.png

Hi guys
When I installed the OS on the 64gb ssd no other drive was hooked up. The E drive is left over from the original 1.5tb drive. The 128GB drive is where Steam will be.
Thanks again guys

Your drive you could not find is Disk 1 at the bottom. You have to create an aligned partition and give it a drive letter. Read the link WHS gave about creating an aligned partition post #5 I think. It's there it just needs a letter.

The concern is the E drive with the system reserved. The system reserved should not be there unless you have another OS on that drive. If you don't, you could just delete the partition. There are other ways to do it, but if you have nothing on the 1.5TB drive, just delete both partitions and then create 1 partition of the whole drive if that is what you want. or just delete it and don't worry about the 100MB.

Hi Guys
Well today was going along I took a break from playing on my rig with a Windows Performance of 7.6. so I thought I'd be proactive and do a system image of my C ssd drive. Plugged in my external hard drive and started the program and got a freaking Blue Screen. This is the same Hard drive I did a system image on last week. It was formatted. The image was just starting when the Blue Screen came on. Also in System Information/windows error reporting there seems to be a lot of errors (a whole page). Any ideas?
Thanks

Open an elevated command prompt (Start-type CMD-right click- select run as administrator) When it opens type-
sfc /scannow and see what happens. Run it at least 3 times.

If System File checker doesn't find and repair errors which solve your Bluescreen, post up the BlueScreen bugcheck file to our Crashes and Debugging forum using this tool: Blue Screen of Death (BSOD) Posting Instructions - Windows 7 Forums

I would also run Disk Check on the HD's including external. Can you save the image to one of your other HD's?
