Re: SATA SSDs

I almost downvoted this with a huffy “oh come on, it’s not that hard,get a grip”.

... and then the morning caffeine kicked in and my current activities along exactly that came flooding back.

Pour over Asus mobs manual, said mobo having two M.2 slots, figure out which one I can use that won’t clash with the existing PCIe card, then look at table in manual to make sure there’s no overlap in SATA ports (I don’t even understand why this is an issue but the manual has warnings all over the place), then make sure the BIOS is up to date, then scrounge around whether my 3 or so available cloning programs will work, or just go to hell with it and plan on a re-install.

After that run-on sentence I recognised you’re absolutely right! >.<
