Let me tell you about what I found researching this drive and what I know from building computers for 25 years. This drive has an advantage over many because it has error checking and built in power backup to keep your data safe just like their Enterprise server drives, however it doesn't have any software, but that's not a problem if you optimize Windows by a guide like Sean's for Windows or The SSD Review's and download your pick of cloning freeware. To clone you can use this as a method to connect the new drive to your computer. mSATA to USB3.0 SSD Enclosure
Remember to make sure TRIM is enabled in your OS or your drive will slow down over time and you'll have to use a secure erase utility to regain your performance. Firmware can also be a cause and as of today the last firmware update was 9/13, so in Windows you can check your's under the drive's Properties in the Device Manager, but I haven't had a problem. I'm told it has over provision built in, which extends the life of the drive, because a 120GB is really 128 with 8GB over provision and a 240 is 256 and they use a Redundant Array of Independent NAND technology to achieve this.Read more ›
For anyone else looking to do the dual-boot trick, the key is to use the most recent version of Ubuntu (the older versions don't play well with the Windows UEFI boot loader) and make sure you disable the Secure Boot option in your BIOS. Also, turn off the Fast Startup in Windows 8 if you want to be able to access your Windows partition from Linux, otherwise Windows just hibernates instead of doing a complete shut down.
I would recommend installing the OS from scratch (I'm using Windows 7), ensuring you have the latest BIOS from dell (A06), rather than a clone of your old harddrive. Optimal data orgainzation may be slightly different on an SSD, plus you get rid of all the junk you don't need anymore.Read more ›
After that boot the iPod in disk mode and restore it with iTunes. One thing that you will notice is that the computer will take a long time, maybe three minutes to recognize the iPod and this is normal because of the huge storage capacity.
After that you can enjoy of the biggest DAP in the world.
Note: It works best if you use Rockbox
