Bill,

You now have to make a CD and install BIBM on your HD as I outlined above. After that's done you are just about ready to install Win7. I won't get ahead of you so I'll wait until you have installed BIBM and answered my questions from earlier posts.

Bill,

Yes, make the CD in your laptop.

BING = BootIt NG
BIBM = BootIt Bare Metal

BIBM is a big improvement on BING. Better suited to SSDs and Win7 OS.

OK. After you have created your BIBM CD you will need to upgrade BING on your desktop to BIBM. It's easy.

boot the desktop from the BootIt BM CD
Setup... click OK to upgrade BING to BIBM and put a tick in Remove the BootIt NG Files after upgrading, click OK
Setup... Click OK to begin
Setup... click OK to Setup completed successfully
click Close
Setup... Remove the boot CD and click OK to restart
BM will boot and you should see your old Boot Menu
click Maintenance
click Boot Edit and then choose Edit (for your two boot items) to confirm everything is correct. It should be. click OK
Done!

What are your plans for the Win7 partition (that you don't trust) on the HD? Would you like to delete it?

The SSD installation comes later but what size would you like the Win7 partition to be on the SSD? Do you plan to have another partition on the SSD or just the Win7 partition?

What size is the Win7 partition on your current HD? How much free space is present, roughly?





Brian.

Sorry for not answering. The drive that Win7 and Winxp  and Bootit, there are 3 partitions, and that drive is 1 TB with lots of unallocated space.
I want to get rid of (formant) the Win7 partition.
On the SSD my plan was a single partition, this is a 240 GB drive.
Currently there are 4 drives, 3 inside, with a forth out side with a eSATA connection to the MB, drive zero (c:) is the boot drive, drive 1 (F) is 2TB data drive that has 3 partitions, (F:- H:- G:) drive 2 (a single partition) a scratch drive for Photoshop, drive 3 (O:) is the eSATA our side the case that backs up drive 1(F:)
There are two more external USB drives
that backup G: H: there are 3 more backup drives off site.
There is one other dedicated drive that's  a Clone of the OS and important software, that's taken after a clean install. 
There is one more drive for Ghost images, is only used when I make a new image.
The clone sits in my desk and doesn't get used unless needed, Ghost backup also sits unused, and is used only for images.

Bill,

Thanks. I'm clear now.

OK. You have BIBM installed and are ready to go. Make sure you can boot WinXP OK. Power off.

Remove all external HDs
Install your SSD
Boot into BIBM (click Maintenance on the Boot Menu window)
Click Partition Work
Leave the Bus as BIOS for all the following procedures
BIBM should see the SSD as Drive 0
Click the drop down arrow for Drives and choose the drive that contains your Win7 and WinXP partitions
Select the Win7 partition and click Delete. In the Conform Delete box click Yes and don't add any ticks. Leave the area as Free Space for the time being

Close Work with Partitions and click Settings. On the right side you should have a tick in Align on 2048 Sectors. It MUST be there.
click OK out of Settings

click Partition Work again. Your SSD is Drive 0 and is showing as Free Space
Select the Free Space and click Create
Name it Win7_SSD or your favourite name
File System NTFS
accept the Size - MB
leave everything else alone
click OK, OK again for Auto Cluster size, OK again for Format summary.

Close Work with Partitions and click Boot Edit
Select your Win7 Menu Item and click Delete
Select your WinXP Menu Item and click Edit
In the MBR Details area select the Win7_SSD partition and click Hide
On the left side of the window put a tick in Swap. (this is the first of the two Swaps). You don't want the Swap in One Time Option
click OK

You are back on the Boot Menu window
click Add
On the left side
It should be HD 0
Identity field, name it Win7_SSD or your favourite name
click the drop down arrow for Boot and choose the Win7_SSD partition
choose an Icon
put a tick in Default
On the right side (MBR Details)
select the WinXP partition and click Hide
click OK, click OK again

You are now on the BIBM desktop
click Resume
select Win7_SSD in the Boot Menu and click Boot
You will get a message similar to "This partition does not contain an operating system....."
(this procedure sets the Win7_SSD partition Active)
power off the computer

Disconnect all internal HDs except for the SSD

Boot from the Win7 DVD
Install Windows, next
Install now
select Win7 OS
I accept
choose Custom (advanced) install
select the Win7_SSD partition
you should see
Disk 0 Partition 1:Win7_SSD    224 GB  224 GB    System  (If it says Primary instead of System it is not Active)
Ignore these....Load Driver and Drive options (advanced)
next, that's it, Win7 is being installed

Any questions?

Let me know when Win7 is working properly and we'll think about the other HDs.

How do I know everything is correct?

You can omit this as you are going to delete Win7 and view WinXP in Boot Edit later.

Brian,

I tried to boot to the disc, the first thing that shows up is this
Enter Product Key



Enter the image for Dos product key (leaving the name blank) or the Bootit bare Metal name and product key from your purchase receipt.

I did this, and I get a error,

Invalid Name or  key

I don't anymore time tonight talk with you tomorrow.

Bill,

You must have entered incorrect Product numbers when you made the CD. Get the numbers from here....

https://terabyteunlimited.com/product-download.php

When you enter your BM license details there is a Name and a Key field. Copy/Paste rather than type. See how the new CD works.

Bill,

I saw this....

Quote:
Add-on SATA 6Gb/s controllers vs Native SATA 3Gb/s:
I suggest you use the onboard SATA instead of using a PCIe card. PCIe cards add latency and are not really worth it just for SATA 3. You will hardly even notice the difference in use b/w SATA 6Gb/s and SATA 3Gb/s honestly, even 2 SSDs in RAID 0 there is hardly a difference in real world use.


http://www.overclock.net/t/1179518/seans-ssd-buyers-guide-information-thread#use...

If you have problems with the card at least we will know you weren't the first.
