@pa67: So what exactly is your recommendation if someone just wants to disable the iSSD to be able to boot quickly again? Boot with Gparted? I don't really get it... @ALL: Does anyone know if it is really necessary to insert the original HDD/RAM again before sending the Notebook to the ASUS for warranty/repair? I've replaced both the HDD and RAM with an SSD and larger RAM stick and would very much prefer to just leave it inside the notebook as long as Asus doesn't care and I get those components back in the end, as my mother is currently using the originally built-in HDD. Any experience or advice?
