    Re-format/Re-install Windows on Intel 320 SSD

    1nonly

      Hi,

       

      I have an Intel 320 120GB SSD, SSDSA2CW120G3K5.

      I have Windows 7 x64 intsalled on the SSD, I want to re-format the SSD-drive and re-install Windows on it.

      I can't Secure Earse from the Intel SSD Toolbox as the SSD is a boot drive and Windows by default has created a 100MB partition.

      Now I have read that re-formatting an SDD during the installation of Windows (like you would with a normal HDD) significantly decreases its performance.

      So my question is, which method do I follow and go about re-formatting and re-installing Windows on the SSD?
