Firmware? - Page 2

post #11 of 13
You wont have any problems if you flash your firmware even if you have windows loaded on it already. But since you are getting it brand new, might aswell do the the flashing before you install windows on it.

All I know isfrom the instructions it says to plug into one of the first four ports labeled 0-3. It says it will not work with HBA's or 6 gb ports. I know I have 2 6 gb ports by Marvell and 2 by Intel. I have read that I need to enable hot swap in the bios for full AHCI mode. It does not say this in the directions. So many people have issues installing these SSD's that I have to wonder if the Crucial direction on their site are correct for install and firmware update.

Seemed to be a problem.

As to the OEM version, the OS key is tied to your motherboard.
Shouldn't have a problem.

As to the Sata III ports I am not running mine on the Marvel controller but
off the the Intel ports, Sata II.
Sata III not natively supported with the chipset on our boards.
I use the Sata III ports for my WD Sata III 6g 640 storage drive.
Problem well documented on our boards.

You can try it either way as to performance and problems.

Hi,

Don't think you'll have any trouble after firmware update.

I'd use the Intel port for your SSD.

Familiar with your board and first thing would do is D/L the lastest RST
driver from Asus for it.

After you get it setup and running well as sata II you can try the marvel
port with the latest drivers and see if your read writes are better
on one or the other.

To be honest not going to see any appreciable every day difference.
More for show than a whole lot of go.

Good Luck

Later
