I have a used 500GB sata for data. I rarely store much in /home. I assumed I should get MX installed on the SSD before attaching it.
I planned to partition the SSD into 15-20GB partitions.
I found some info on installing Linux on an SSD and it says "If you don’t already, you should have the drive set to AHCI mode in your BIOS settings." Is that something I need to do? I looked around and did not see anything. The bios is not a place I am comfortable with so that does not mean it was not there and I did not find it.
I know there has been some discussion on a new version of gparted. Is the version on MX14.2 ok to use?
