Hi.

As other drives (HDD or SSD), you need format the SSD before use it. You can follow the next steps.

1) Right click in my computer
2) Properties
3) Manage
4) Disk management
5) Your SSD should be there with a black color and without format, just do right click, select format and start.

MBR is not a type of format, MBR means Master Boot Record.

Just do right click and format. Write a name for the disk and be sure that File System says "NTFS", select OK and wait to finish.

Was wondering if GUID is better? never used a SSD before, unsure of any differences present in it.

What OS are you using right now? I mean, at this moment you are writing in this forum using Windows 7?, Ubuntu?, Suse?

meant to type NTFS. It gave me a choice earlier between MBR and GUID. Not sure of the difference.

gpt is used for drives above 2.2tb

there's no point in using it on smaller drives

Ok, game is working and frame rate is slightly better. Now I will install all the mods and the old ini file to see what happens.
