I recently turn on my M14xR1 after a long period of time (my current computer broke so had to use my old alienware laptop), it was horrified how slow the boot time is. I love my alienware and decide i want to upgrade the hard drive.
So here i am browsing what SSD to get and bump into many user from other forum saying that the R1 does not support the mSata format, and also does not support sata 3 speed.
Which bring me to this thread where the fix file is. Just wondering since is quite a old thread can anyone tell me if the link still works (i think i cant access it yet). I am planning to get a Samsung 860 Evo SSD.
PS: on the side note any old M14xR1 laptop user had the experience to reapply thermal paste to the CPU and GPU. I think mine dried up and is spinning the fan crazy.
