I installed LXDE in the SSD, but I had a problem with the video configuration, I adjusted it and rebooted before changing the Grub menu, big mistake. It altered the Windows Bootmgr of the Hard Disk. I finally was able to recover the Windows installation. But when booting from LXDE Live CD only sees the Hard Drive not the SSD.
If I try to make a new LXDE (Linux) installation it close the installation just before formatting the SSD.
I went to Windows 7 Disk management and the SSD is there with 3 partitions:
•12.01 GB Healthy Active Primary Partition
•3,9 GB Healthy Primary Partition
•207,66 GB Healthy Primary Partition
I tried to make a secure erase in order to have the SSD in the original conditions using Intel SSD Toolbox and it did not allowed me because "a Security Freeze Lock is detected and the drive must be power cycled by unplugging and plugging in the drive" If I understood correctly this has to be done with the drive connected to the Desktop while it is power on, I am not going to do that, that is risky for all the hardware including the SSD, and it is a new machine and the guarantee can be void.
I erased the partitions with Windows 7 disk Management, I got an unallocated 223 GB SSD, but the SSD is 240GB. I have Windows 7 in a WD Hard Drive.
I tried to install Linux LXDE and again fails in same point before formating the SSD.
Now there is not a partition in the disk,
•Why is the Security Freeze Lock on?
•Why I can not modify words with Intel SSD Toolbox?
•In the seventies was very easy to write to memory positions, Why is so difficult now if the technology have advanced so much?.
But what I do not understand is why Windows 7 disk Management sees the SSD but LXDE no
, with a LXDE LiveCD I can see with the file manager the WD Hard Disk but no the SSD, Why?Did some one had same problem and got a resolution? Any Ideas?.
I lost a complete working day. What an unprofessional method of "power cycled
." I can not belive that the Intel SSD Toolbox can not write to a memory word, old computers of the seventies could do that. Where these people go with new technologies?. The more the technology advance it should do best, fast and easy the things for people, not worst.
Thank you for your help.
