Help: Slow Win7 boot with a new Corsair F60 SSD - Page 2

post #11 of 23
Thread Starter 
I took out all of the other HDD disks, and tried to only boot with the SSD, it didn't work. So I had to load it from the Win7 CD. And the SSD are not discovered. Btw the BIOS are still in AHCI mode. Suggestions?

Completely unnecessary to reinstall.

OP: This was linked earlier but this is all you need to do to boot with AHCI:
Quote:
To resolve this issue yourself, enable the AHCI driver in the registry before you change the SATA mode of the boot drive. To do this, follow these steps:
Exit all Windows-based programs.
Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
If you receive the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.
Locate and then click one of the following registry subkeys:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\System\\CurrentControlSet\\Ser vices\\Msahci
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\System\\CurrentControlSet\\Ser vices\\IastorV
In the right pane, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.
In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.
On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor.
Note, you'll first want to set the boot type to IDE instead of AHCI, do the above and then switch the drive back to AHCI mode. I've never seen this fail. Ever.

It's a little wierd that it was a faster bootup when I changed it too IDE, in the BIOS. But I will reset the regedit and try to change it too AHCI again. I also have to mention that two out of five harddrives are out of the cabinet, one of them are my last OS disk before the SSD. But I will try TurboTurtle's instructions, even if I've done them before.

Forget that, this was really wierd! When I changed back to AHCI mode, it was just the same long splash screen Win7 logo login/startup. And it took around 10 seconds in IDE mode.

This is my latest BIOS settings:
Code:
OnChip SATA Controller [Enabled]
OnChip SATA Type [AHCI]
OnChip SATA Port 4/5 Type [As SATA type] (I can choose IDE here)
Seems like I can run my SSD in IDE mode, since thats faster for me, plus that TRIM is enabled there also: http://www.overclock.net/ssd/747658-...-ide-mode.html


AHCI splash screen: 1 min 5 sec
IDE splash screen: 14 sec

Not the most top speed, but its a lot better than when it was in AHCI.

Yep, you are getting such long splash coz of IDE mode in Windows 7 itself (I am surprised you don't get BSOD). Here is a guide with pics how to change to AHCI in Windows. Then reboot and change to AHCI in BIOS.

I have changed the msahci 'Start' value too 0. Even the iaStorV 'Start' value is 0!
The only change between AHCI and IDE are that in Device Management theres a new device named "Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA-controller", and the ACHI takes 1 minute and 5 seconds in the splash screen. IDE settings takes 14 seconds on my computer. Why is this?
Btw I restarted when the computer asked me too after I changed the setting in BIOS. So that ACHI mode could take effect.

AWARD BIOS Settings:
Code:
OnChip SATA Controller [Enabled]
OnChip SATA Type [AHCI]
OnChip SATA Port 4/5 Type [As SATA type] (I can choose IDE here)

I think I've started to locate the problem. I belive its because there is another harddrive that have the status "System" drive. The same drive is "Active". So, how do I change the System drive too my SSD, that is allready "Bootup" and "Active"? I can not find this odd System drive in the 'Computer' folder. I can only see the other harddrives. I can not format the harddrive via Disk Managment or diskpart in cmd. I think its an old install of XP or Ubuntu on the old harddrive that are screwing up with some of my loading times. Any help with how to change the "System" drive is welcome.

ps.
The Win7 folder and the harddrive icon are on the SSD disk. But its still wierd that I can't boot from the SSD disk. It seems like I have to boot from this old harddrive (in bios).

My boot time is also quite a bit faster in IDE vs AHCI... However when I run benchmarks, I get about an extra 80mb/sec in AHCI. I also initially installed my OS in IDE, then later used the reg fix (i know i did it right because otherwise it would BSOD). Anyway, just wanted to share.

PS: Even though I have a slower boot time, I kept it in AHCI because according to the benchmark, the read/write speeds were faster across the board in AHCI.
