Hello guys!
I am the new proud owner of a new G751JT, and I have a few questions, if somebody can help me.
I want to instal a SSD Samsung 840 EVO on it, and don't really know how to do it.
This is what I have learned so far from others
- I have to take out the normal 1TB HDD, that comes with the laptop, and place the SSD in that bay, and the HDD in the empty bay
- i have to start the laptop, and enter in bios, to activate AHCI, and also set the SSD to bot first
- Then I just instal my Windows 8.1 and all other drivers on the SSD

I have to mention that my laptop is Free Dos, and I don't need to copy anything from my existing HDD.

I want to ask you, are those 3 steps good?

Should I do anything beside those 3 steps?

Ty for your time!!

Yes we know that SATA 0 is SATA 3 6GB and SATA 1 is SATA 2 3 GB so if for no other reason you will want your SSD on the fastest SATA port
