    Hi there

    For testing also I think you'll find an SSD with a SATA==>USB3 connector works as fast as Native SATA connection !! (especially on a laptop) so for testing with SSD's you don't even need to mess about with cases as I mentioned. Just set your BIOS to boot from the external USB device.

    BTW if you only have ONE USB3 port a USB3 powered hub works fine too. !!!!

    Most SSD'S are 2.5 inch anyway. If you really need the 3.5 inch enclosures then OK but all my SSD's are 2.5 inch versions.

    Cheers

    I also use a 3.5 spinner there from time to time. And that's the whole idea for the SSD enclosure. I just wanna make sure I am covered with any size of hard drives I need to use.

    I have 5 USB 3.0 ports. I added a USB 3.0 controller card.

    I normally just choose a boot drive on start up.

    Thanks!









    If you know how to fix a messed up bootloader or the entire OS itself, the risk factor is negligible. Plus, I used a test SSD for this with a cloned copy of my Win 7. So, there's actually no risk at all. This video is just to let everyone see and know what to expect when upgrading from 7 to 10 and back to 7 if Win 10 doesn't work well with existing hardware.









    Make sure that you also have an image of 7 before upgrading to 10 so that when you go back to 7 from 10, you can restore from that image to get rid of all the garbage that 10 left on your system or if 7 does not work the way it used to.
