Then go to BIOS and Turn on AHCI there. You can install the Intel RST driver anytime after the installation, by the way.

I would, however, go through the steps to align the drive, prior to install.

I am messaging an Expert, just to get a second opinion, though smile.gif

Okay thanks man! Where do I get the Intel RST Drivers? Someone in an SSD thread recommended getting them from my motherboard makers driver list. These were the drivers on the site:

It sounds like a botched Windows install. I can't tell for sure--when did your restarts happen? Was it like after the initial setup files were transferred, or was it after the installation showed it was complete?

The first one is right in the middle, after the files transfer and it starts rebooting.

Thanks. I think I fixed it by unplugging every hard drive but the SSD.

I'm going to find out later what happens when I plug the hard drives back in.

Well everything started working! Windows 7 installed without problem. After plugging in all of the hard drives except for the one internal, it was completely fine after reboot.

I wanted to get AHCI enabled though. That might have been a mistake lol. Intel wouldn't let me load the RST drivers unless AHCI was turned on. When I went into the bios and set the hard drives to use AHCI, Windows at a BSOD at startup. I was told by someone else that setting the hard drives in the bios in Raid Mode might work. After rebooting the system the Raid/AHCI was asking for a disc. It kept on trying to load the Windows 7 installer. Everytime I reloaded it kept on doing this. After going back into the Bios and setting the hard drives to IDE, it still kept on asking for a cd. I could boot into Windows 7 if I hit the boot key at startup and selected the drive Windows 7 was on. This is an inconvenience though.

I think I might try this to perhaps fix it so AHCI works.

If not maybe booting into the install disc and selecting repair might fix it.

Anyone else have any suggestions? Maybe I should start a new topic.

I won't be able work on my computer all weekend because I am heading to my parent's house.

You have to edit the Registry first then go to the BIOS.

AHCI stand for Advance Host Controller Interface. AHCI is a hardware mechanism that allows software to communicate with Serial ATA (SATA) devices (such as host bus adapters) that are designed to offer features not offered by Parallel ATA (PATA) controllers, such as:

Hot-Plugging and Native Command Queuing (NCQ) -might improve computer/system/hard disk responsiveness, especially in multi-tasking environment

There is one way to fix this, although you need to have knowledge of registry editing. The detailed steps from Microsoft website are as follows:

(1) Exit all Windows-based programs.

(2) Press [Win] + R or take the RUN option from the start menu.

(3) Now type regedit there and press Enter Key to open up the Registry Editor Window. (If you receive the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.)

(4) Locate and then click the following registry subkey:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Servic es\msahci

(5) In the right pane, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.

(6) In the Value data box, type 0 [3 is default], and then click OK.

IDE%20to%20AHCI%20modify.jpg

(7) On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor.

(8) Restart your computer

(9) Go to BIOS and enable AHCI, Save & Reboot

After this is finished, you will be in AHCI mode. Then you can install the INTEL RST. If you feel like it, a program like AS SSD will show you what mode you're in. It's a free download and install. It will show msahci if you're in software AHCI and iaStor if you are using the INTEL RST.

PS: Regarding Benchmarks: It's probably okay to run benchmarks that READ and WRITE a few times, but don't get too carried away with them. Those Writes will add up over time.
