Has Anyone...

Has anyone attempted to install Win7 on a Solid State drive? If so, what has your experience been like? (Have you found it significantly faster during install, and have you found it faster overall while running the OS)

I know it's been done because people have installed 7 on EeePCs and other netbooks that run on SSDs. No idea what the instillation is like, though.

Hello GreyWolf,

Oh yeah, it's faster with a SSD drive in everything. Windows 7 runs great on it.

I have the original netbook, the EEE701 with a 4gig SSD. Someone was kind enough to vLite Win7 down to 1.9gig and then upload the ghost image over eeeuser.com. Surprisingly for those bare minimum specs it actually ran pretty decent and booted up as quick as XP. It should fly on the newer atom based models.

True but on one hand, netbooks aren't meant to be blazing fast machinery. Just like thumbdrives and memory sticks for cameras...some are low end and some are high end.

Was curious if anyone compared a 32mb Cache SATAII drive with one of the faster SSD drives out there under Win7 yet.

Very nice. I've heard Intel has some of the fastest SSD's out right now...Are you aware if they are faster than the drive stats you posted?

Oh yes, the Intel X25-M and X25-E are the fastest v3 SSD's out there right now, but they are also some of the most expensive ones to.
