    oh I stupidly damaged one screw [​IMG] ... I think it s one of these long screws that holds the bottom and the top body parts together ... I stupidly turned clockwise instead of anticlockwise and it seems that now that the damage is done that the screw is too tight and I can t unscrew it now [​IMG] ...

    btw I can confirm it s hard to get inside the R9 ... with apparently only one screw left the top still holds well ... the keyboard holds well also but it looks like there are some clips that hold it ...

    luckily my cousin is a specialist in electronics reparation and he was able to kind of redo the screw-head with a small driller :)

    I can confirm, as said there that it was a pain to get inside the R9 (one difficulty is that there was some strong double adhesive tape that was holding the keyboard to the body)

    but with the SSD I am now much more happy with my R9 : it starts fast enough and is fast enough to browse the web :)

    Pretty sure you can align it with Windows.

    I am not sure I recall correctly, but I think you use the system detail page. Maybe recheck the performance and that aligns everything.
    I am sure a quick Google will tell you.

    OK I checked , as advised on https://www.diskpart.com/articles/align-sdd-after-clone.html, if my partitions were 4K aligned and only the last one (an extended partition) was not aligned ... didn t find a way to redo it from Windows so I redid it from linux ... according to msinfo32 all my partitions are 4K aligned now ...

    Found this. For future readers.
    ----------------------------------------
    If you install Windows7 on a brand new SSD, you need not make any special arrangements because the Windows7 installer will do the alignment for you. For Vista you are lucky because the start sector happens to match a SSD page. For XP the start sector is 126 which would be in the middle of a SSD page, thus a prior alignment is required.
    A similar situation is present when you clone an existing OS (including Windows7) on a new SSD.

    I guess I initially created my last (extended) partition from linux, that's why it wasn't 4K aligned ...
