Any issues with the migrated OS on the SSD?

If you are going to do a clean install, as essenbe mentioned, secure erase and then leave the SSD unformatted and just point the installer to the SSD.
All of the important SSD settings will be done by win7, then run the toolbox to check.
You will get the 100MB boot partition, correct alignment, defrag will be off, etc.
Be sure that AHCI is set in BIOS before you do the clean install.

You can get all of your previous settings by using easy transfer.
I've used this several times, your new clean install will look and have all the settings of your old personalized install.

You'll have to install all (most) your programs before running the easy transfer to the new SSD, good opportunity to make sure you have the latest versions, it will put your settings on programs also.

I keep the old install on the HDD for a while, in case you need to check settings or anything else.

Nice

So what do you think of the new SSD?


Ive always said (as well as many others) that a SSD is the 1 single upgrade you can do where the results are immediatly apparent.


My guess is you noticed the difference pretty much at boot

First boot I wasn't sure which drive was booting after Migrate. It was about normal for the HDD but I didn't time it.
I think Migration software was finishing on first boot. The Intel Migration window popped up for a couple of seconds.

Turned on AHCI and rebooted turned it on in Bios and second time was noticeably faster. Not down to 20 seconds or anything near that.
Web page load and refresh are much faster.
Especially refresh. Click, 1, done. No 2,3,4 done.

I'm glad I didn't go for more speed like the OCZ Vertex3.
It would have been a waste of money.

I have a friend who comes to me when she needs computer work done. I've often upgraded stuff for her, then had to explain to her why the new hardware was better, since she really didn't notice it. I dropped an SSD in her rig last fall and for the first time ever she was going "wow" right off the bat.

Awesome!

You'll probably stay up all night checking out the new drive. I think I did when I got mine.
