    Hi,

    Is this just the the proper way since a SSD loads much quicker versus a traditional HDD and doesn't need to search for a particular drive?
    The MSata drive is on that MB is what exactly ?

    If it's an SSD then it's OK but probably much slower than the newer SSD you just installed.

    Fine, yes but optimum it probably is not. No idea what you can set in bios though.

    One of these days we'll boot from RAM.... Or a small extremely fast SSD drive...

    Oh well, what do I know.... ??

    Cheers,

    It is a 32GB mSata SSD which I believe intended to speed up the original HDD caching. Not sure if it is going to be useful now that I have installed a SSD for my main drive.

    Thanks again for your help. I just don't want to run into any problems in the future if I can avoid it. My old HDD just seemingly crashed and I got a "no boot device available" error. I took this opportunity to go the SSD route for the system and application drive and will install a HDD for additional file storage.

    The "UEFI Windows Boot Manager" was new to me and wanted to make sure I have a proper setup before going through with the installation of all of my applications and files from my backup drive. I am used to seeing the actual drive as an option in the boot priority but I suppose the motherboard and SSD have dictated this setup instead.

    There is not a lot of info out there that explains the the purpose, reasoning, or any differences for this setup so just trying to be proactive and avoid any headaches in the future.

    Hi,

    You set up the system perfectly.
    The 32Gb was indeed intended to overcome the speed limitations of a typical spinner by using it as a caching device.
    You could now use it for whatever you fancy really.

    Cheers,

    Hey guys.

    I have the same issue and yes, I'm good with whatever works too but my question is:

    Is UEFI mode better than Legacy? I know Legacy is a much older method of booting but what's faster and better?
