Set Bios to AHCI. Disconnect ALL other HDD untill after windows 7 is installed.
.. Download the Intel RST driver (Version 10.6 or later) and install.
.. Down load and run AS SSD (don't need to bench mark) just look at upper left to verify:
A) Latest Firmware for SSD.
B) driver is iaSTor (Should be msahci until you install Intel RST driver).
C) Partition alignment = OK.
A couple of tweaks I always do (Your tweeks may depend on size of SSD - didn't indicate and My recommendation is for a SSD =>90 Gigs:
.. Disable hibernation.
.. Set page file (virtual memory). Set Min/Max to same value. For Ram > 4 gigs try setting to both min and max to 1024 mb (for 4 gigs ram try 2048 mb).
.. I also move the "my Documents" folder to the HDD.
You can Goole "SSD Tweaks" and select the ones you feel are best suited for your individual needs.
