Anyone else running Samsung SSD?. I`m using the 16GB Samsung MC8DE16G5APP-0XA00 Solid State Drive, 2.5" IDE (PATA) on a VIA Nano ITX board. Clean Unmodified install of Win XP SP2 is returning a boot time from BIOS POST test of around 16 seconds to desktop. I'd be interested in anyone elses experience, I`ve also used the 8GB version with similar results in an earlier version of my car PC.
I may have overlooked it since its so late but if I have a ssd for the os and apps, and a regular drive for music/movies then do I still get the short bios post or does it wait for the slave drive to spin up? I want faster boot times so i want a ssd for the boot drive, how do i hook up the other drive for media to make booting the quickest?
Alright so my last question is, do you think 4 gb is a a big enough drive for iguidance and windows xp without cutting it down in size? Below is a link to a guide for setting windows up to utilize a flash drive without killing it with writes. Sorry if repost but i thought it might help. http://www.windowsdevcenter.com/pub/...ex.html?page=3
