i'm going to install a X25-M G2 as OS disk.
1. Should I set AHCI in bios or keep the IDE mode???
2. Whats the BEST alignment for the Intel SSD under XP?
3. Should I update to the lates firmware and what about trimm under xp? does it happen automatically or do I have to do something special?
4. what about the Intel Rapid Storage-Technologie driver? do I need them? and if yes.. how to handle that?
Win XP does not support Trim so you need the help of SSD toolbox to support trim , it is a software available on intel website
it is always recommended to use latest firmware, i think the latest version is 02HD, check it out on Intel website
rapid storage technology is use for raid configuration, u may check out the ff sites
hi, so should I use AHCI or not?
if not I don't need rapid storage technology....
whats better... ahci or no ahci... I can't decide...
latest FW - OK !
manual Trim - OK !
and how about alignment???
