    Hi,

    Ultimately you're always going to be limited by the I/O throughput of that era but I do agree with Clam 1952 in that an SSD drive is your best option.
    Sure I could show you how to run Windows from a drive in a PCIe slot that's not bootable but the gain in doing so is again limited by the rest of the hardware.

    Cheers,

    Hi, I would like to know how to do that even though I may never do that.

    I dual boot the other PC which is the MSI 7596. A very simple way to find the speed is run this command
    I can boot a live usb and do this on the Aspen board later.

    scott@scott-MS-7596:~$ dmesg | grep -i sata | grep 'link up'

    [ 2.160041] ata2: SATA link up 3.0 Gbps (SStatus 123 SControl 300)
    [ 2.160063] ata1: SATA link up 3.0 Gbps (SStatus 123 SControl 300)
    [ 2.164040] ata3: SATA link up 3.0 Gbps (SStatus 123 SControl 300)

    scott@scott-MS-7596:~$

    I loaded a picture of my 4 drives as reported by pulling info from the log. One is a sata 3
    I also ran a read write test of the Toshiba which is the sata 3 drive. I need to do these tests on the aspen board

    [ 7.216284] ata2: SATA link up 1.5 Gbps (SStatus 113 SControl 300)
    [ 7.216367] ata1: SATA link up 3.0 Gbps (SStatus 123 SControl 300)
