Yeah, this I think is a problem, as I have RAID 0 and have a score of 3. something... How do I go from having a 5.9 in vista, to a 3 in W7?

Had the same problem, it's something wrong with the testing routines in the System Rating. Having Write Cacheing turned on stuffs the scores. Your disk is just as fast, it's just someone at MS can't add up or something.

To Fix:
Go to Control Panel, Hardware and Sound, Device Manager. Expand the Disk Drives section, right click on your drive, select properties then the policies tab. Uncheck 'Enable Write Cacheing..'.

Run the System Rating again and it should show you your 'real score'. You can then turn on the Write Cacheing again using the same procedure.

While you're there if you could check the 'Turn off the write cache buffer' option for a little extra speed.. (very good for laptops, READ THE WARNING!)..

Hope this helps..

Glad it worked out for yah

Windows 7 HD performance scores has been attributed to be affected by how you installed Windows 7. People that let Windows 7 create a partition on unallocated space during install are not affected by the low scoring and would yield the normal results similar to Vista.

FYI. My score before the fix was 2.0. Now it's 5.9

When running in dual boot mode, "using a partition" Windows 7 doesn't make that 200mb seperate partition. Still I had the same HD score either way and disabling write cache made no difference for me. I get a 5.9 either way....strange.

If you have a UPS or other means to protect your system from fluctuations or power outages, yes. Please refer to the description.

Thank you all for your help. I turned cache off and went from a 3.0 to a nice 5.8 thats even higher then in Vista But when i took it off, i rebooted my pc to switch back to Vista. I had selected Vista and got a BSOD:|, kinda strange. Rebooted, recovery start-up and everything was fine again, had this something to do with the Cache turning off.

I couldnt make a picture or so, because it was only visible for like half a second.
