And since I'm talking personally, I also align my own partition, thus not allowing windows to create the hidden system partition, but that's up to you. Yes, if you use my method above you will have only a single aligned partition for windows, with no system reserved partition. The system reserved partition is only needed to boot from if you have issues, such as needing to run startup repair, Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD5 Intel SATA AHCIRAID other system repair tools, all of which you can run easily from the windows install DVD.

That is what I always do, when and if needed, which is rare. See, here is my current SSD, you can also see my Vista setup is the same single partition, and Drive E is also Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD5 Intel SATA AHCIRAID secondary windows 7 setup, all of those use only single partitions I am not familiar with your SSD's, so I'm not sure if it's Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD5 Intel SATA AHCIRAID practice still to have to leave extra space for GC or not, many older SSD's yes this was needed, but many of the more recent generations do not need this. I only use Crucial drives, which are not Sandforce based, so I don't really have any experience with your type of drives, sorry about that.

You'll have to look around at their forum, or ask in a new thread, and if you do just browse around be sure you are looking at more current threads not older ones.


I do know there is already hidden space on the drives you cannot access, that is used for wear leveling and GC, so you shouldn't have to reserve more, so any answer you find will probably just be users own personal preferences. Here is some info on what I mentioned about the drives already having space set Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD5 Intel SATA AHCIRAID for various duties, it's a little old, but you'll see what I mean about it already having reserved area for GCwear leveling,ect. If you do decide to leave some spare area, I'd say GB should be more than plenty.


Also, in case you are not aware and are new to SSD's, do not defrag your SSD, this is not needed and can slow them down and shorten their lifespan Thanks for your kind words, they are most appreciated! I believe the applaud link under my user name here gives me thanks or kudos, I'm not super familiar with this forum setup here either but I think that's what you are looking for I do not work for Gigabyte, but I am directly in close contact with them, so I guess you could say I Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD5 Intel SATA AHCIRAID with them but not for them.

Anyway, as to why Windows cannot see your hard drive during installation. This could be a couple of things.


Sometimes when the bios is set incorrectly it disables a few SATA ports and cannot see drives connected to them. It's a manual trawl through your driver disk through. This should not be needed unless you opted to use a raid controller.

GhislainG Dec 23,5: Then install the drivers. No I did not do this.

I wasn't aware I had to. Could you tell me exactly at what point I should be pushing f I am in stalling Windows 7 Ultimate and I don't remember seeing the prompt to push f6 to install any extra drivers. Changed that value to 0 i take it is the top key in the folder that by default said 'no value set' and tried to boot with controller set to RAID. I then set intel controller to raid and went to install windows. It still saw no Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD5 Intel SATA AHCIRAID so I clicked load driver and navigated to the CD I just burned but windows told me there were no drivers located on that disc.

Motherboards PC Perspective

I then changed intel controller back to AHCI to bot into windows and try to install the intel drivers directly from the disc but there is no. I dont know if they're designed to be installed any other way other than Gigabyte GA-Z68XP-UD5 Intel SATA AHCIRAID windows but as you can see I tried that and that didnt work either.
