  1. With windows 7, it automatically detects you have an SSD and disables certain things.

    Here is a really great guide, it's worth reading:

    I would say tweak it to how you would use your computer.

    Chainzsaw is correct, but you have to run WEI (Windows Experience Index) in order for Windows to detect that you have an SSD.
