Then why has OCZ told you to Secure Erase your drive many times? That would imply you had some issues with your SSD...

I'm not saying the order you installed your chipset drivers caused this, but you have had issues.

Bottom line: Chipset drivers are ALWAYS first. Telling people to do it otherwise is just asking for trouble.

A SATA power cable needs to be connected to the drive too.

I've had one issue with my ssd. BSOD followed by the drive not being recognized in bios. Same thing that's effected thousands of others with a Sandforce 2281 powered drive. Every single secure erase I've done has been because of it. Most of the secure erases were trying to get the drive stable with 2.06 then with each new firmware release, I also did a secure erase.

My own personal method of installation was chipset drivers first. For some reason, when ocz started to have problems, they wanted it to be done last.
