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 W7 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

SSDs in RAID 0
I'm thinking about setting up some SSD's in RAID 0 and I had a few questions. So am I to understand that if a Crucial M4 reads at 415 MB/s that if you RAID them that it would theoretically equal 830 MB/s? Or are there safeguards put in place where you can't just put ten of them in RAID 0 and...

Do SSDs never fail ??
I have seen a lot of discussion on how fragile SSDs are and that you should not do this or that because that will put wear and tear on the SSD. However, I have not yet seen a single thread about a failing SSD - in contrast, there are a lot of threads about failing HDDs. Are those SSDs maybe...
