Default Clarification Required on SSD Capacity after XP Install - 05-17-2009, 06:56 PM

I have a 16 GB SSD on my new DM9 with XP HOME SP3 installed and McAfee crap removed. I have not installed anything else on this unit.

When I note the standard pie chart of the SSD profile, I see the following SSD profile:

3.71GB used space
10.5GB free space

(1) This link below shows a statement from another DM9 user that 4 - 6Gb is lost when you first receive the m/c from the dealer (after XP install) and then 10GB remains - just like the data I have above.

(2) This guy has similar ssd profile (4.96 Used space, 9.31 Free space):

(3) This guy has around 10GB of free space after XP Home Install on his 16GB SSD.

Those of you who have the 16GB SSD and XP install on a new DM9 - does your SSD profile match above?
