    All you have to do is disable acceleration using RST. That turns the mSSD into a stand alone drive. And, of course, the laptop will do this automatically if you remove the main HDD in order to install a new drive.

    I saw people earlier in the thread (couple hundred pages ago) talk about having already set it as a boot drive. It is definitely possible.

    It gets REALLY hot, still great specs for the price and I'm fine with the heat so I am keeping mine.

    I remember someone saying that the caddy for the 6000 series works with the 7000 series and you can get it off of newmodeus.

    If I end up (again) exchanging my dv6t, I see they don't offer the 750gb 7200 rpm drive now. Assuming I don't want to swap out my drive for something else, is it better to get the 1 TB 5400rpm or the 750gb 7200 rpm "hybrid" drive? I read somewhere that they hybrid drives can have more problems and be very complicated to repair.

    The hybrid might come in handy if you want to stick it in another computer. It's only like $20 more too I think.

    So when I clean install, do I just go through installing every driver or just the ones I need?
