Installation of SSD at Windows® 7 system
Learn more about the features and installation techniques of SSD on a Windows 7 computer.
SSD is the abbreviation of solid-state drive. In Windows 7 this has improved a lot, so there is definitely a lot to look forward to in terms of SSD compatibility. In Windows Vista, the SSDs are considered as similar to the SATA drive. So here you could not expect more speed for this SSD. In Windows 7, the read and write speed of the SSD is increased. Windows 7 will partition the SSDs more efficiently to lessen the redundant read-write cycles. Also, when Windows 7 detects an SSD, it could automatically disable defragmentation, since defragmenting could reduce the lifetime of Solid State Drives. When drives are defragmented, the read time will be improved, but since flash memory already has a high read rate and slow write rate, defragment is not effective for SSDs. By enabling the write caching you could improve the performance of the SSD. You could perform this by following some simple tasks. To start the process, you need to open the 'Device Manger' from the 'Control Panel.' After this you need to expand Disk drives and double click on the listed storage device that you want to enable write caching. After this you have to click on the 'Policies' tab and by default, "Enable write caching on the device" is checked under the Write-caching policy section. If not you need to enable it.
Following are some of the issues that might arise while installing SSD in to the Windows 7 system:
- Malware infection
While installing SSD in to the system, you need to check the compatibility of the SSD with the system. The system must provide all of the necessary requirements needed for the SSD. Some of the systems could not provide the needed memory and all those things. This might make several issues such as error messages. You could fix this by making the system capable to work with SSD.
Malware infections are also one of the issues that might arise while installing the device drivers. The driver of the SSD might get affected by the malware in the system. The malware could corrupt the installation files and thus that process gets failed. You should be careful about these malware while installing SSD on the system.
There is a chance for conflict between the existing drivers in the system. if the system holds any of the previous version drivers while installing SSD, then these two will get start to conflict each other. This is one of the reasons behind the blue screen error in the system. You could resolve this issue by removing the old components successfully.
