greets from germany: did you install the t91mt bios version on your t91?

Josef said...

Nice to see you again on a Netbook Hack. I think you heat up your solder iron for the second hack, right? free mini pcie slot near the ssd.

Thanks for the video good to see that it is not too hard to change the ssd.

eeetube said...

Great job!
The t91 is unfortunately a bit slow. Do you think that the new ssd will solve this problem?
I have problems with my t91 under 7. I cant't use the keys to raise up volume.

ThePhreak99 said...

Just ordered one. Thanks for the video! :)

Patrik said...

In the Run Core specs it says 125/80 why is it slower here?

JKK said...

T91 can't go faster.. bus is slower than the SSD..

ThePhreak99 said...

So when are your next video coming?

Anonymous said...

Fix the title, it says SDD instead of SSD (in YouTube also).

I ended out selling my T91 and picking up the T91MT. I just ran the CrystalDisk and had some interesting results.
Read Write
Seq 72.16 33.41
512k 68.44 25.96
4k 8.261 2.074

A little faster than the 16gb model

Ben said...

Oh...I also have2gb of ram installed. Not sure if that makes a difference

Patrik said...

Have you thought about putting a faster ssd in the X70EX. I´m thinking about upgrading mine.

will the ssd work on the eee 901?

ThePhreak99 said...

I'm sitting here now and are cloning the disk. Got my new RunCore Pro IV SATA 50mm Mini PCIe SSD disk yesterday. Two days shipping with UPS from US till Norway! :D

If youre having problems with the cloning, disable all the cpu settings in BIOS and remove all SD cards.

shame on that ssd upgrade the benchmarks looks okay but firefox loading and all the other stuff looks bad.

Thanks jkk, I just ordered a 64Gb for my T91MT, your nice video got me going, thanks. /gunnar-eee

Scott said...

Thanks for the video! I have successfully put in the 64GB Runcore SSD, big improvement in performance. One thing... After I put everything back together, the keyboard hooks aren't really holding the keyboard down firmly anymore... I can pry away the keyboard quite easily now...putting the 3 hooks back in place isn't seeming to work for me. I have watched the video several times, paying attention to what you did you get them off in the first place, but pushing them away from the device...but reversing the process isn't getting them back in place... I guess I will keep trying...

gunnar-eee said...

I followed the excellent guide now and installed the 64GB Runcore. Thanks jkk ! Appr twice the write performance overall, read about the same. I installed 2GB RAM as well. Take care to not drop any of the small screws into the machine at reassembly. You may need to open it all up once more ;-|

Hello,

Hi JKK,
I had follow yr video to exchange my M91MT's SSD, however my machine isnt able to detect the RunCore SSD harddisk, do u have any idea whats doing wrong? and may I know the BIOS version if anyone had success updated their M911MT.

Thx

daniel deyette said...

hey there dunno if you still read or care about the old T91 machines,but tommorow i'll be posting my benches of a 16GB class 10 SDHC as well as a runcore 32gb :)

dan deyette said...

32gb runcore loaded...

unfortunately the sdhc hdd slit maxes at 16mbps
whether your using the stock transcend class 6 or an adata class 10 16gb sdhc :(

asinc said...

I ordered the upgrade direct from Runcore and the BIOS doesnt appear to recognize the disk. I have the latest BIOS installed. I am afraid they shipped me the "non-light" version. Is there a way to confirm which part I recieved?

Anonymous said...

Can the old hard drive be placed in the plastic housing that was used for cloning and then be used as an external usb hard drive?

JKK said...

yes, you can use the old drive as external usb drive

I'll ask this queston again. Is it possible to do this replacement in my Eee Pc 901? Thanks in advance for answer.

JKK said...

Anon, Yes you can upgrade your 901 SSD same way.
