Re: Replacing 3.5" harddisk with 2.5" SSD on my SAM460ex

I haven't replaced a drive, but when I built my X5000, I installed an SSD.

It's the same as installing any other HDD. Plug the SATA and power cables in. Simple as that. The form factor is smaller, so you might need a 3.5" --> 2.5" bay adapter, but that should be easier to source.

Just be sure NEVER to do a full format of an SSD, always quick format.

As for re-installing software, I'd reformat a Flash Drive with an Amiga filesystem (e.g., SFS2), copy all my Amiga data to it; swap the drive out; boot off the OS 4.1 CD; prep the new drive and copy the data back from the flash drive.
