Amazon .... with their record quarterly profits and paying a pittance in tax (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-45053528), I'd like to boycott them, but I cant, they are so damn convenient

Silly question...

I have a 2009 vintage Medion laptop which is painfully slow but which I still use. I would like to replace the HDD with an SSD and do a fresh install of Windows. The thing is it has to be 32-bit Windows Vista as some of my old programs won't run on later Windows versions (eg Lotus 123, Borland Quatto).

Will SSDs work under Vista okay? Will I need a compatible BIOS?

PS - I've replaced the HDD once before so access isn't an issue.

I agree, it just annoys me that they price match and claim back the difference from manufacturers. Nobody can compete with that.

It should work fine, but just check that your old hard drive is SATA, not PATA. Easiest way to find out, is to find the model number of your existing hard drive through windows system/control panel, then google the model number.
If you don't know the difference between pata and sata, then google it.

I would be willing to bet its sata mate, be very surprised if its pata on a 2009

Many thanks. The current HDD is SATA. I think I'm going to have a go!

I think the real question here is does anything work well with Vista
Oh no I shouldn't have bought 10x odd branded 240GB from them last time. Much rather prefer Kingston.
Hmm, so many SSDs lately, hard to choose one. Which brand is preferred nowadays? I've seen people complaining about Kingston, WD, everyone seems to be focusing on Samsung, crucial, SanDisk or Toshiba.
Just curious, although I would bite and go for the 480gb Kingston on offer here.

Be aware that Vista doesnt support TRIM (https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_vista-hardware/does-vista-support-trim/ef216c74-8a73-416e-87c7-cfc314b2d5ee)

TRIM is the garbage collection/cleanup functionality on an SSD (a bit like a defrag in old money).

Therefore you will have to use the SSD manufacturers utility - some are manual, some run in the background to allow you to schedule when the TRIM will be run)....

Anything that works on Vista should work on 7. 10 would be a different story...

Should work, just be aware that Vista might not necessarily optimize drive settings for SSDs. In particular I'd make sure disk defragmentation is turned off. Hopefully any included software will help you get good system settings.

Vintage laptops benefit from these, too. Although mSATA SSDs with a PATA adapter will outperform the Kingspec, which is more or less a CF card with a PATA connector.

not yet, I think they learned their lesson when their credibility was shattered with those lousy V300 SSDs
For fun I installed XP onto a spare SSD I have and boy XP has never been so fast - ok so no trim and a few things need turning off but I've now got a mega fast old wreck that'll finally let me run my old Yamaha DB50XG soundcard once again, after 15 years of not using it.

Good price but forget ebuyer NO thank you!
@Fotune I also got a little burned by eBuyer too. I bought a non sata drive accidentally (sas or something) and realised 1 day after their returns policy (one doesn't always use a hard drive immediately after buying - at least I don't). So it was completely unused and completely useless to me.

I got in touch to see what we could do (out of the returns period by a day so my own fault but I thought I could get a part refund maybe - after restocking fee - or at least store credit). No refund. No part refund. No voucher / credit. Nothing. This was after literally spending thousands of pounds with them every year for several years in a row (back when I had more money - and tech appetite - than sense).

Ended up selling it on eBay for about half price (so that was something) but nothing from eBuyer. Shifted all my spending elsewhere for the 5 years or so after that. Once burned, twice shy.
