Setting up SSD Windows 7 is done in severalstages. For stable operation in the BIOS in the settings for the SATA controller, you need to set the AHCI mode. If you leave the IDE, some operations for removable media may not be available. In addition, the installation of an operating system on the SSD must necessarily be accompanied by a change of mode.
If you decide to install Windows 7, thenProblems do not arise, since the installation on the SSD drive does not differ from the HDD. The fact is that the new version of the shell for personal computers has been slightly changed, and all the necessary drivers necessary for the proper operation of the operating system, including AHCI, have already been integrated into the structure of the installation files.
However, setting up SSD as the installation basefor Windows XP requires special attention, as in this version there are no necessary drivers, so when installing the OS, a blue screen may appear. This is a consequence of the fact that the installation disk could not find the information carrier.
You do not need to configure Windows 7 for SSD, sinceafter the first service pack search by the driver is optional - the OS will do it itself. It is recommended that you remove other media when installing the system. Otherwise, the installation may fail, and the SSD setting will be made with errors.
The SSD is configured in such a way thatthe carrier was maximally unloaded. It is recommended that you avoid creating recovery control points and hibernation mode. If you need to install additional software, you can use the version of the same OS installed on the HDD-media, where all the necessary functions are included.
All these settings are relevant if the disk is small. At the same time, disabling the above functions does not affect the performance of the system in any way. Therefore, to make the adjustment should be meaningful.
There is an opinion that SSD-carrier after frequentoverwriting spoils and quickly fails. The truth is there, but it should be noted that such carriers are designed for a huge number of cycles of cell re-recording, and with frequent changes of information, the disks will last up to 20 years. With less active mode of rewriting - up to 50 years.
At the same time, conventional HDDs, although they do not have a fixed service life, are equipped with mobile parts that can quickly fail out of order, than "infrequent" SSDs. Therefore, the choice is for the user.
