    Ok, after re-reading your process, I have to ask:

    Why shrink the drive's storage capacity by 20%?

    This doesn't really make much sense to me. I bought a 120GB SSD, and to take 20% away on top of what Windows already uses seems a little off.

    If you can link me to why you do this, I would be very much interested in reading up on it.

    Also, why not just take the 20% away when formatting it from within Windows before installation?

    shrinking by 20% is not a necessity but its good practice if you can afford the space it will keep top performance of the drive much longer as well as make the nand's lifespan more than double. this is why enterprise drives are over provisioned 20 to 50%. search anand he explains it and trust me it makes a huge difference.

    if you take the 20% away when formatting it from within Windows before installation then windows will create the separate boot partition we are trying to avoid

    Honestly, we should take this information and turn it into a guide. I've got most of it written up already, plus a few other things that you do not mention and other general improvements for making Windows run as fast as possible.

    Might take a few days with the amount of homework I've got due by Tuesday, but I'll have something ready by the end of the week.

    A few other things you might want to look into:

    • Disable Remote Differential Compression
    • Disable Windows Gadget Platform
    • Reduce the size of the Recycle Bin
    • Disable all Startup, Shutdown, logoff, logon, fax, etc. sounds that are not needed
    • Enable No GUI boot (faster startup)
    • Remove IPv6 support on Ethernet adapters
    • Download Link Shell Extension (here) and change the location of the following directories to a mechanical drive: (This is to minimize the writes to the SSD)
      • C:\Windows\Installer
      • C:\MSOCashe (for Microsoft Office Products) [Hidden Folder]
      • C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Adobe (for Adobe products0 [Hidden Folder]
    • Move the Windows TEMP directory to another drive as well
    • Install TeraCopy (here) and set it as the default copy handler (enables faster file transfers, pause and resume, and error recovery)
    • Run TCP Optimizer (here) and set it for your connection type. (Get faster Internet speed)
    • Tweak Services according to Black Viper's Guide (here)
    • Disable System Restore (Only if you have a good Backup Schedule) [Caution: Make sure to backup the directories you changed with Link Shell Extension as well]

    Maybe this can get you running even faster. Hope it helps.

    One thing that you forget to mention is that for those that actually use Windows 7 Ultimate for more than just bragging rights that they are using "Ultimate":

    By pre-formatting the entire drive prior to installation, and losing the 100MB partition, you effectively lose one of the best features of Windows 7 Ultimate. Not only is the MBR (Master Boot Record) included in the 100MB partition, but the files needed by Bitlocker Drive Encryption are stored on that partition as well. So, by performing that step, you are no longer able to use Bitlocker to encrypt your hard drives.

    are you sure of that? because it will probably just reside in a folder on c like the boot partition. EDIT you are correct.

    On a fresh (custom) installation of Windows 7, where Windows 7 is installed onto a new hard disk with unallocated disk space (no partition or volume been defined yet), or when user attempts to create a new partition out of empty drive, the Windows 7 installer will create an additional partition with the size of 100.00 MB, and mark as System Reserved.

    The 100MB volume is labeled as System Reserved with NTFS file system, and System, Active, Primary partition attribute with no drive letter in Disk Management. The 100MB system reserved partition is only available for Windows 7 Ultimate, Windows 7 Business and Windows 7 Enterprise editions. The 100 MB system partition is used primarily as BitLocker partition for BitLocker encryption. Additionally, it also holds the Windows Recovery Environment (WinRE) and boot files with boot manager for booting up the computer for troubleshooting when there is no Windows 7 installation DVD disc on hand.
    Source: http://www.mydigitallife.info/hack-t...ing-windows-7/

    The core functionality in Windows 7 BitLocker has been enhanced to provide a better experience for IT Pros and for end users. From simple enhancements like the ability to right-click a drive to enable BitLocker protection to the automatic creation of the required hidden boot partition.

    Now, once I am able to have time to play around and upgrade my rig again, I'm going to see if there is a way to still achieve the 1024k as posted in the OP, while also keeping the 100MB partition. Possibly by provisioning the rest of the drive, and then expanding the size of the hidden boot partition.

    Unfortunately, It looks like I'll be waiting a few weeks to get this done. I'll update you here once I find out, unless you feel like testing it yourself. I'm still working on compiling the guide, and I'm going to hopefully have a .PDF version available to download so our members can download it and print it off to follow when they are optimizing their drives as well.

    Please help me with this. I am trying to move my Installer folder to my HDD, but when I click and select Pick Link Source and right click on the destination folder I want, it gives me a lot of options. How do I move it completely to the HDD? And after I do is it ok to delete off my SSD OS drive? Thanks.

    Here's where I found out about it:

    http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...tml#post623701

    His instructions are on post#8, which is where the link above should direct you to. If you still can't get it from there, I'll hopefully be posting Bill's tutorial, + everything else that I have learned into a tutorial for the site in the next few weeks. And, I'll be including screenshots of the entire process.

    Hi bill,

    how did you achieve 500+ write speed with crystal mark? Mine does 160+ to 170 write speed and i have check a couple of review sites and those score align with mine. I noticed that your drive size is 240gb Im not too sure if that contributes to 3 times the difference?

    thanks

    you need to run the all 0 fill test you will hit 500 then

    here look 120 gb drive like yours:
    default test you are running:


    all 0 fill test same drive:
