OCZ RevoDrive PCI-Express SSD and Windows 7

Hi there,

I have Windows 7 that boots on an OCZ RevoDrive PCI-Express SSD.

The thing is that the OCZ RevoDrive PCI-Express SSD presents itself as an HDD and Windows 7 thinks it is a HDD indeed.

The challange here is that Windows 7 behaves differantly with SSDs, augmenting it's speed and life.

In order to have Windows 7 to behave properly, how can I tell Windows 7 that it is booting off an SSD

Thanks,
Rene

Windows 7 will disables disk defragmentation, Superfetch, ReadyBoost, and application launch prefetching for SSD's.  Don't really need them with SSD performance.

OCZ does have driver downloads for the Revo which might help with recognition,

You can manually disable this stuff for your drive,  instructions can be found in this OCZ forum topic,
