Re: installing a SSD to LT confusses me
actualley I was planning on saving all the doc.s on this OS HDD then create a backup OS SSD so I can be prepared when the current OS HDD fails.
I attemped to download win7 home preium however my internet speed is very slow so either I need to use a hot spot or purchase a win7 DVD (I have the key code)
I’m concidering Cloning Lap Top HDD w/ SSD
How doe’s my plan sound use a portable 2.5” enclosure like this bottom link.
I also plan to save the files on the current HDD to the portable HDD.
I see 4 small nipples on one side of enclosure
?1.I’m assuming these are rubber screw
?2.Covers that I can remove w/ my fingernail?
?3.I’m thinking it can be disassembled and insert a SSD?
?4.Then use acronis (free trail version) to mirror the HDD.
?5.What do you Guy’s think about cloning a HDD to SSD this Man at New Egg say’s it’s not recommended. And the SSD should have a fresh copy of win7 OS.
?6. my main concern is setting the trim requirements in the BIOS w/ my clone procedure should the trim be set first before mirroring HDD?
?7.I’m assuming my intel H57 MOBO is capable of using trim since my PC came w/ win7?
