SSDNow

For Desktops

Installation Guide

Your purchase of the SSDNow with Accessory Kit will allow you to enjoy the benefits of increased system performance and reliability. All hardware and software necessary to replace your Desktop PC's internal hard drive with the SSDNow Solid State Drive (SSD) is included. The Acronis® True Image HD software*, an imaging program that copies the contents of one computer hard disk and loads those contents to another system drive, will take you through the cloning process. This software allows you to move your Operating System and your personal data from your current system hard drive to your new SSD. Once the Acronis® True Image HD cloning process is complete and the data is successfully transferred to your SSD, your hard drive can then be used as a secondary drive for data storage.

* The software provided in this kit does not support imaging/cloning of RAID or Spanned disk arrays. There are tools and features included in the Acronis software that are not applicable to this product bundle. This manual provides instructions for the Cloning feature only. Please refer to the Acronis “Help” menu, located within the software application, for instructions on the use of any other software features.

ATTENTION: PLEASE READ BEFORE BEGINNING INSTALLATION.

If the SSD provided in this kit is larger in capacity than the hard drive currently in your system, proceed toHandling Precautions.

If the SSD provided in this kit is smaller in capacity than the hard drive currently in your system, please confirm that the used capacity on the system hard

drive is not larger than the capacity of your new SSD. Perform the following steps to determine the Used Space on the system hard drive:

1)Boot your computer to your desktop.

2)Double click on My Computer (Computer in Vista) located on your desktop or via the Start Menu.

3)Single right-clickon the C: drive and select Properties. The Properties window for the C: drive will appear (Figure 1):

Figure 1: (C :) drive Properties

If the used capacity is greater than the capacity of the SSD, it is required that you move some of your data such as pictures, movies, music, etc. off of the drive to an alternative data source (e.g., external hard drive or USB drive) until the Used space is no more than

After the cloning process has been successfully completed, these files can be moved back to their original location on the hard drive.

Handling Precautions

To prevent damage from static electricity, observe the following precautions:

Allow the drive to remain in the anti-staticcontainer until you are ready to install the SSD.

Wear a wrist strap and connect the ground strap to the computer case to minimize static electricity.

Use care in handling the drive. Do not touch the connectors.

Hardware Installation

1.Turn off the power to your computer and disconnect the power source.

2.Remove the system chassis cover according to the system manufacturer’s

instructions.

3.Attach the 2.5” to 3.5” mounting brackets (provided) to the SSD by aligning the mounting screw holes on the brackets with those on the SSD and inserting the M3 flat head screws provided.

4.Locate an available 3.5 inch drive bay inside your computer and install the SSD using the 6/32” pan head screws (provided).

Note: Your system may require proprietary chassis screws, rails or a bracket system to be used with its drive bay(s). If this is the case, please attach that hardware to the 2.5” to 3.5” mounting bracket for compatibility with your computer chassis. Refer to your system manufacturer’s documentation for instructions.

Figure 2: Desktop PC motherboard with 4 SATA connectors.

The number of connectors on each system will vary.

Note: SATA connectors are keyed to ensure correct orientation.

6.Attach the other end of the SATA interface cable to the SSD.

7.Attach the power cable or power adapter (provided) to the SSD.

8.You are now ready to copy your data from the system hard drive to the SSD using the cloning software CD provided.

Setup and Use Acronis® True Image HD

IMPORTANT: ** It is strongly recommended that you uninstall any Trial versions of Acronis software prior to installing full versions.

1.Insert the Acronis True Image HD software CD into the system CD-ROMdrive.

2.Restart the system.

3.The Acronis True Image HD CD is a bootable disk and will boot to the Acronis True Image HD screen.

Note: If the system does not boot to the Acronis True Image HD screen and instead boots to Windows, perform the following:

1)Restart the computer. While the system is restarting, run the system setup program (BIOS). The BIOS can be activated by pressing a special key such as ESC, F1, F12 or DELETE. (Refer to your system manufacturer’s documentation for the correct key.)

2)While in the system BIOS, change the boot order so that CDROM/DVD is the first boot device.

3)Save the settings and exit BIOS. (For more detailed instructions on configuring the BIOS, consult your system manufacturer’s documentation.)

4)Restart the computer. When the computer restarts, it should now boot to the Acronis True Image HD page.

SSDNow

For Desktops

BIOS does not have the spare SATA ports turned on or enabled. If this is the case do the following:

1)Restart your computer. While the system is restarting, activate the system setup program (BIOS) by repeatedly pressing a special key such as ESC, F1, F12 or DELETE. (Consult your computer system’s documentation for the correct key.)

2)While in the system BIOS, look for an entry labeled "Drives or Hard Drives." Select this field using the arrow keys on your keyboard and press Enter. Here, the spare SATA ports can be enabled or turned on by selecting the SATA port and changing the value to "On" or "Enabled". For best results, it is recommended that you enable or turn on all SATA ports during this process. Doing so will not harm your system.

3)Exit the BIOS by pressing the ESC key. Save changes when prompted.

4)Restart the computer, booting to the software CD, and try the cloning process again.

7.Select Automatic from the cloning mode options (Figure 6). DO NOT select Manual mode. (Manual mode should be used by advanced users only.) Click

Next.

Set “Hard Drive Boot Priority”

Your system is now configured with two bootable drives. In order to boot from your new SSD drive, you must enter the system BIOS to set "Hard Drive Boot Priority" so that your new SSD drive is set to boot first. Perform the following:

1.Restart your computer. While the system is restarting, activate the system setup program (BIOS) by repeatedly pressing a special key such as ESC,F1,F12 orDELETE. (Consult your computer system’s documentation for the correct key.)

2.While in the BIOS, change the "Hard Drive Boot Priority" so that the disk labeled "SSDxxxx" is in the first position.

3.Exit BIOS by pressing the ESC key. Save changes when prompted.

4.Restart the computer. When the computer restarts, it should now boot to your new

SSD drive.

Note: Your original system hard drive can now be used as a secondary data disk for data storage and should be viewable via My Computer (Computer in Vista).

Precauciones

Para evitar daños causados por la electricidad estática, observe estas precauciones:

No saque la unidad SSD del embalaje hasta que vaya a instalarla.

Póngase una muñequera y conecte el cable de masa a la torre del ordenador para reducir al mínimo la electricidad estática.

Manipule la unidad con cuidado. No toque los conectores.

Instalación del hardware

1.Apague el ordenador y desenchúfelo.

2.Quite la cubierta de la carcasa del sistema según las instrucciones del fabricante.

3.Acople los soportes de entre 2,5 y 3,5 pulgadas (incluidos) a la unidad SSD con

los tornillos de cabeza plana M3 incluidos de forma que los orificios roscados de los soportes coincidan con los de la unidad SSD.

4.Busque una bahía de unidades de 3,5 pulgadas disponible en el ordenador e instale la SSD con los tornillos de cabeza plana de 6/32 pulgadas (incluidos).

Nota: Es posible que su sistema exija usar soportes, carriles o tornillos patentados en las bahías de unidades. Si así fuera, acople dicho hardware al soporte de entre 2,5 y 3,5 pulgadas para garantizar la compatibilidad con la carcasa de su ordenador. Consulte el manual del fabricante del ordenador.

5.Conecte un extremo del cable de datos SATA (incluido) con el conector de interfaz SATA de la placa base del ordenador o el adaptador de host SATA. A continuación, le mostramos un ejemplo de conector SATA de una placa base:
