Hi!

Not sure if this will work, but is there any way to create a RAM disk pre boot? My thought is to have an SSD as a hard drive, but change its page file to 0 while making my ram disk a page file of 2 gigs in windows 7? Or even better, but not sure its possible it there any way a system would be able to boot from SSD if the SSD is read only? That way every time the computer turns off, it would be like having a fresh new one. This would be for work stations for a property management system. They need to run with full admin rights in windows 7 but beside Java and IE cache they don't (or should) install or save anything on the disk.

Thanks!

Actually if you are running a Sandy Bridge (Z68 chipset ) from Intel.you can download their app and set up a disk cache using SSD.
