Just got a G751JT - very happy so far....
Ordered a 850 SSD and went to install using Backtracker....

Created restore disk on Lexar 16GB USB.
Swapped the builtin 1TB HD for SSD.
Booted the USB stick in the first USB port on the left side and halfway through installer said there was error.
Funny thing was I tried again after plugging USB stick into second USB port on left side, this time install worked fine :-)

Installed old 1 TB drive as slave.

Booting and launching stuff is waaay faster now....

Thouhgt I would post in case anyone had problems booting usb....

what's your SSD storage? I saw people saying they cannot boot with new drive which is less than 500GB

Best installation ever.
