    How to re-install windows on G55WV

    I'm buying an ASUS G55VW and I am going to put in a SSD as the main hard drive, I was wondering what I would need to do to re-install windows onto the SSD. Thanks

    I would do the following:

    Download all the latest drivers from the ASUS site.

    Remove all other hard drives from the laptop

    Verify that the drive is set to ACHI in the BIOS

    Install windows fresh, don't use ASUS recovery media ( DO NOT FORMAT THE DRIVE, IT SHOULD BE PRE-FORMATTED FROM THE FACTORY )

    After windows is finished:

    Verify that TRIM is running

    Click start orb > in the 'Search programs and files' area type CMD > right click CMD and run as Administrator

    type in the following : fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

    hit your enter key on the keyboard

    It should come back as :

    DisableDeleteNotify = 0: This indicates that TRIM is enabled

    If it is, EXCELLENT!

    Proceed to install the drivers

    Do windows updates

    Go to the following URL:

    http://www.ninite.com/

    (ninite is a auto installer for the most common PC apps)

    Install whatever software you'd like

    I suggest:

    Chrome (replace with browser of your choice)
    VLC
    EVERYTHING under run-times
    Adobe Reader
    Microsoft Security
    Malwarebytes Anti Malware
    Steam
    7-Zip


    Welcome to the AWESOME world of SSD
