Read for A SIMPLE INSTALL for old Dummy's Like Me.

This $30 SSD turned my 10 year old Dell desktop into a quite, fast, mean machine! I really got bogged down in all the terminology and hype so I wasted a whole lot of time doing my install ): Don't do that!!! To save you from making the same mistakes I did; I boil it down to 4 easy steps. #1. Be sure the disk you buy will hold every thing on your old HDD and then some. If you want to save some money then erase a bunch of that culminated stuff your never going to use anyway. #2. Buy yourself the least expensive mounting kit that still comes with the extra plugs, you might need them. I did and it only cost a couple of dollars more. #3. Get you some software that will "clone" your old HDD disk to your new SSD disk. Cloning software does not come with this disk. I found plenty of them out there, I used AOMEI and it worked good. #4. After you start it back up you'll see you now have a C: drive and a D: drive and the files in them should be the same. Next I FLAT OUT WASTED ABOUT 4 HOURS trying to figure out how to get the computer to boot-up on the new D: drive. I watched videos, read articles, performed experiments, did me some programming and nothing, nothing, nothing worked. I was about to bash it with a hammer and take the whole dang thang and throw it in the trash!!! Then I said to myself "Don't do that!!!" Then I said to myself; "Just shut it off, pull your side panel back and unplug the old HDD disk and replace it with the new SSD!! it's going to boot-up on that new SSD disk every time, because it don't have no choice. You probably won't ever use that old HDD disk again anyway. If you do need the old one then just plug it back in as the D: drive". This new disk thrills me because it's now the C: disk and it's going to thrill you cause it's going to be soooo much faster and silent. That's how this old man did it, I hope it works great for you and takes you a lot less time !! (:
