  1. Want to have 1 SSD with Windows and 1 with Linux


    hello! I have 1 SSD with windows 10 currently installed. I have a second empty SSD installed in my pc too, and I want to install Linux on that one in order to have the option of running Linux or windows on my pc. How would I go about doing this? Thanks!

  2. SSD stops and freezes laptop

    Couple of updates:

    1. I created a Linux boot USB key, and monitored my SSD under Linux, so this is evidently not a Windows issue, and
    2. I loaded new firmware for the SSD, and my system seems to be functioning normally now. What a pleasure using a PC that doesn't consistently freeze up.

    Thanks to all y'all for your suggestions!

    Regards,

    Dave

    Is it possible to easily setup Raid-1 on this system ?

    Get the six core CPU's I listed, at 3.3Ghz per core they will more than handle any calculations you throw at them for years to come, and with matching RAM in tri channel you will have a very strong setup.


    My only other suggestion is a full RAID card like the one I listed with SSD's (in RAID 1)for the OS and programs, and then a RAID 5 array for backup and any large files on the board with a offsite final backup

    Hi, In my pc M.2 SSD with Windows 10 OS is listed as Disk 1 and not as Disk 0 in Disk Management. Also, the same drive is listed as Removable devices which is actually internal SSD.
