You can't cold boot from a ramdisk, as ram is nonvolatile ... for now...
Yeah...that's what I was thinking. So you can load apps from it then? Like adobe photoshop? The partition has an option to be permanent, at least in DataRam software. Would be nice to see photoshop load in 1 second
I don't know the exact specifics but you can put your OS on the drive -somehow- but you just cant have your os on it permanently (IE you just can't put the os, turn pc off, turn on and go to work directly to your ram disk, you would have to reinstall every single time)
Pretty sure it would work well with a custom imaged drive though.
@const, I'm sure you could but I don't know anything about dataram software unfortunately. I assume (the partition) its like any other HD where you just tell the install program where you want it to make the directories.
i was watching motherboards dot org youtube video talking about this technology and the asus rep said the ramdisk is being stored to the hard drive before turn off so your information is stored. it just sounds like it will take a lil bit longer for the hard drive to transfer your virtual drive back to ram on boot
