How to install SSD into X51

It’s actually very easy to open up the case. Just unscrew the back of the x51 and slide the left panel out. After that, unscrew 2 screws to lift up the gtx555. Unscrew 1 more to slide out the dvd drive.

Take off the current 4 pin molex power and connect it to the cable you bought. After that, connect the cable to the motherboard. Connect the sata power to ssd.

Before you put everything back, unplug the HDD to make sure the OS installation on the SSD will have no problems. Keep in mind that this is using the SSD as a boot drive and to hold a couple of other programs. Keep ALL bulky files and storage on the HDD.

After the OS installation, plug back in the HDD and install drivers.

Here’s how to enable trim for your SSD (Credits go to whoever wrote it.)

Here’s where to mount(tape) your SSD.

Thanks for the post, I plan on doing this same thing when I get mine.

After installing Win7 to the SSD, is all the needed Alienware software/drivers on the included disks? So my install should be no different from the OEM install on the HDD?

Second, does the X51 come with a Windows disk? I have my own already, just curious.

And last, TRIM is not activated by default? When I installed an SSD in my laptop last year it was, I didn’t need to do anything.

I would like to retain full functionality of all the included software, including Alienware ReSpawn.

The OS disk came with the device. All drivers are given to you in the disk. Keep in mind that the eject button of the X51 will not work until you install the driver so before you do, you have to manually eject from «My Computer».

To make sure your SSD maintains in top condition, make sure TRIM is enabled. It only takes a minute or so.

Thanks for the info. I was wondering if I would have to clone the primary hard drive, now it looks like I won’t have to. Yay!

Thanks for the info. Like I was saying with my last machine when I installed an SSD, TRIM was activated automatically. I will make sure after I install it in the X51 that TRIM is in fact working.

Just did this on my new X51 I just received — I have the right one selected in the BIOS for boot, and eventually it DOES boot and I have the SSD as my system drive now (C but it sits for 3 to 5 minutes at the POST screen before actually even activating the function keys to do setup or boot menu or anything. once it boots it works fine, but I can’t get it to go past the POST as fast as it did before the SSD. I’ve done a lot of SSD’s and never had anything quite like this on any of my other systems. going to look to see if there’s a more recent BIOS for the X51 as well as downgrade the firmware on my SSD (Crucial M4 that had problems due to the new firmware so their support said to put it back to the previous) and see if either of those help, but otherwise even the boot is taking forever, I get the splash screen for windows and it looks like it’s booting at SSD speeds (My boot camped mini booted in about 15 seconds from power button to desktop using this very SSD) until the splash screen goes black right before the logon screen comes up — and there’s another 60 second or so delay.

If the BIOS and firmware changes don’t make a difference I’ll just yank it out as it’s not that critical for me, as it’s a media center PC that runs 24/7 so I only have to deal with boots once in a while when I need to either change something or just refresh it.
