Intel's RST's default Services.msc setting is "Automatic (delayed start)". It's just an optimal setting. The driver loads immediately during Windows startup though, but that service is more of a monitor/notifier type of thing which means it's never needed straight away.

So, it's normal and by design.

I'll install everything again, at least following the erase guide.

Thanks man!
Oh do you mean this one?

Actually i meant those lines using diskpart (clean/create partition primary align=1024/active). Is that safe and effective to format the SSD?
Since while i was trying a fresh install hoping to solve the slow boot issue i was using that method. Do i really need to use a software like the one you posted? Will it work with any brand like mine? Because i saw at corsair`s forum a method using Parted Magic (Corsair Force GT 3 120 Gb)
Thanks.

Just a thought, don't do this:

Quote:
(4) Enable windows write back catching on C drive: right click C drive/hardware/your drive/ properties/change settings/policies/ check turnoff windows write-caching buffer flushing.......................
i remember that is caused performance issues with OCZ drives before. Undo it and see if it helps if you didn't reinstall

Honestly, i'm thinking about returning it or try to ask them to replace the SSD for me. I'm very disappointed with the amount of problems i faced to put this thing to work for nothing.

Same thing, a lot of times it hangs on Starting Windows Screen for like a minute, sometimes it just won't start at all.
Some errors of corrupted registry, and not to mention the read/write speeds. I only got 240/150 or something close to that, and i can see that this is capable of doing 555/500 or something like that, i don't remember.

I used Parted Magic to fully erase the drive and a fresh installation, but the problem always seems to return after a few boots.

Oh god i'm so angry

I'll see what the guy that sold it for me have to say about this, but i really appreciate the support, i guess it's just out of my hands right now.

Aligning it only needs to be done once.

Formatting a drive does not touch the data that is on it. So that's where Secure Erase (or "HDDErase") comes in. However, even Secure Erase is not needed unless you've had your solid state drive for a while and want to make it all fresh and new. Yours is still new, so don't worry about it yet.

There are a few different ways to do the same thing that Secure Erase does, but the following still applies: it's really not necessary.

Use ATTO Disk Benchmark.

Also, are you saying that you formatted and started over since the last time I posted in this thread? If so, then what all did you do? Having Registry errors sounds to me like you did some things in the Registry by following some guide and now it's all messed up. I see this quite frequently here on OCN which is one reason why I say to format, start over, and then keep it extremely simple.

Actually it seems much better after i changed my MOBO port.
I have no more hags on Starting Windows screen.
I had the SSD installed on the local store, so honestly i thought they would do it perfectly, but after i checked RST it said my SSD was at 3gb/s, and that was the last thing i could've imagined. They really connected it to the SATA2 port? I changed the port and i see it marked as 6gb/s now and so far i got no more issues.

I tested with AS SSD Benchmark and i got my sequential reading -> 500mb/s but the writing speed only around 160mb/s. Sounds right?

This is one thing that causes me to be a DIY'er: no one else really gives a flying crap about your system. Plus, asking someone else to do it for you might make them think that they can get away with doing a half-assed job without you ever noticing.

Anyway, which port is it connected to now? Be specific.

The only thing i noticed is that the shutdown time seems a little high, i mean maybe the same of my old HDD.
I don't know.

What does ATTO Disk Benchmark say?

It was already connected on that port, but on the top entry. (I though both top and bottom entries were SATA3, lol.) I switched to the bottom entry and as soon as i booted my system i could tell the difference. Not to mention like i said th RST saying it was 3gb/s before, and 6gb/s after.

Now i don't really know where to plug my old SATA3 HDD.

So is it working good now that you switched ports? If so congrats

Though that is odd imo, I ran on sata 2 fine with my drive.

Oh and you can plug your other sata 3 drive in the port below the one you plugged your SSD xD

...of to class!
