No. Just boot from the OS installer (USB or CD) and run disk utility from there.
Thanks for the Reply. I'll have to give your post a Like once I am up and running again (I am using my Mobile Browser at the moment due to the fact that I am currently in the process of going to Line 0 on my old OEM 5400 RPM SATA Hard Disk Drive). As for my OEM Snow Leopard CD, it will most likely no longer work any more due to the fact that Apple gave me a 32 Bit Disk and my system now has 8 GB's of OEM RAM, instead of 2 GB's of OEM RAM. I do however have a Mac OS X Lion Mini USB Thumb Drive (from Apple, you know, the ones that used to cost $69.99 before they made Mac all Download Only with ML, so that should work. One question that I do have however is it possible to install Apple Boot Camp on an SSD?

I'm not sure if it's still the case but when Snow Leopard 10.6.8 was released, you had to use a little hack to enable trim on 3rd party drives. I'd look into that.
As for performance, I think you'll be blown away
I will no longer be using my OEM Snow Leopard Disk due to the fact that it's 32 Bit and I now have 8 GB's of RAM in this Machine. I will have to give your post a Like however for that little tip about Snow Leopard just as soon as I am back up and running. :-)
