    Compatible, yes. Boot, no.

    Far better to get a SATA SSD. Faster Read/Write and bootable. Save your 2nd mini PCI port for wifi like 5300.

    I'm running a Vertex 120GB SSD. Couldn't be happier. Win7 trim compatible.

    Anyone find a better deal for Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit than this one?

    http://bensbargains.net/deal/120100/


    Also is there any difference between the OEM version and the full version?

    Yes, OEM license is tied to the machine you install it on.

    Question: What exactly do you think Ultimate has that is worth paying the extra coin for? The code base on all versions is EXACTLY the same. all you get with ultimate is bitlocker and 35 extra languages. A few trivial extras that should be free since no one really uses them.

    Be smart, save money, get home premium. Unless you REALLY have a need for obsolete XP only software for which you need virtualization - then get the professional edition.

    Meaning that if I install it on the HDX, and get a new notebook I can't install it on that or anything else other than the HDX then? If so I take it that with the Full version that would mean I could install it to any machine.

    I may need XP yea. I found with Vista you get less setting options if you get away from Ultimate, which I thought was the same with the Ultimate vs Profession vs Home editions of Windows 7. I want the most settings available for networking and such. Bitlocker would also be cool.
