I purchased a 32gb Patriot SSD and I plan on transferring my Windows 7 Home Premium OS that is on my HDD now onto the SSD if possible. I thought that it was, but I am becoming more confused the more I read about this. I was going to use Paragon Migrate OS to SSD, but because I have such a small SSD, I am not sure what files I should transfer over to the SSD, if I even can. Any insight on that? I could even simply do a fresh install of the OS onto the SSD if needed.
Also, about the AHCI. I can only change ports 1-4 and 5-6 to AHCI. I can't do them separately. Can my HDD and optical drive be ran on AHCI? From some of the reading I have done it doesn't seem like that is possible. If not, how do I go about changing only my SSD to AHCI and not the other drives? Thanks in advance!
I suggest you'd better do a fresh install on SSD, before installing the os you'd must turn on AHCI in your BIOS (HDD is use the IDE). If you insist do a migration, as I know the True image from Acronis could do this. And most SSD OZM recommed do that. ( but I still recommend do a fresh install)
