Upgraded U410 TO Windows 8 But Not Using SSD :/

2012-10-22, 3:04 AM

Hi guys,


I bought my ideapad U410 and since then I've been running W7. Recently my University sent me an email to get Windows 8 because they have a deal with Dreamspark or something where we can get free Windows programs. I decided to get Windows 8 and after playing with it, I like it so far.


Unfortunately, Ive noticed that boot times and the general speed of the OS although very good, is nowhere near as good as my old W7. This is largely due to the fact that before I upgraded, my W7 was running on the SSD but this upgrade to W8 is on the HDD.


IS there anyway to redo the whole process and make Windows 8 run on the SSD to make it faster??
