My 2 year old Macbook pro is still a very capable laptop. I don’t have the affection for it that I do for my blackbook but it churns away all the time, being my only computer for daily use.
Multiple VMs running Active Directory, SQL2005, Domino do hurt performance though. For a short term fix, I ordered a Verbatim 32MBGB SSD Express Card, taking advantage of the express slot on the side for the first time. Plan is to run a vm on it and leave the local disk for other things.
Here are the steps taken:
- Open package
- Read instructions
- Download drive from Verbatim site
- Install driver and reboot
- Insert card
Easy eh? Well no. Errors copying to the card and so far 4 total system freezes. So, go into disk utility and try to re-partition the drive in every format, and get these type of errors:
So I go to their support page, click here and click on “your questions answered”. And get a big fat emptiness. Nice. Call support line. eMail support at lunch. No response. Call support this evening. They are closed from 4pm CET.
Not a good start Verbatim. A cursory google search shows I am not alone.
