What's the best/easiest way to tell? BIOS still sees it. At least one partition seems to be formatting properly. However, I seem to have general flakiness with OS'es that get installed. I popped in my XP Home SSD
, seemed to work fine. However on my 32 GB SSD
, I've done numerous installs and reinstalls of W7 and OS X, and there's always something different going on.
This morning, Airport was connecting to the network, but I couldn't get to the Internet. I went in and tried some changes, got out long enough to open up the stock Safari homepage, and then it went kaput.
Last night, I had blown away the entire SSD
to let OS X take it over. One of the times, it wouldn't boot past the Apple logo, despite DellEFI reinstalls. There were other issues before that, but I don't remember what exactly.
We also won't discuss the BIOS flashing fiasco, but I was having issues before that.
Either way, I am suspecting the SSD
at this point. So, looking for thoughts. Don't currently have an OS installed, although I am getting ready to put it back to a W7/OS X dual boot config.
