    install steps for new 80gb g2

    dreborn

      So...this is my first foray into the world of SSD's and I want to make the right choices.  Went ahead and got an 80gb g2 drive and I am going to be installing Win 7 64 bit.

       

      i was going to make sure bios is set to ahci, then update drive to latest firmware posted on intel site, then finally install windows.  Once in windows i don't know what to do.  should i install the intel toolbox?  is that just for trim?  or should i install the RST drivers?  seems shady that i have to download those at station-drivers and they are not available from Intel.

       

      help!  =)

       

      thanks
