Then should I leave Indexing enabled on my SSD and HDD but move the Indexing location/folder to the HDD? Would that still require writes on the SSD? Right now it is disabled on the SSD and enabled on the HDD with the location on the SDD.

Disable on SSD enable on HDD for me, no need to move any thing. You should set your Indexing options manually as shown in my video.

Thanks. Watched the video. So there is no issue with leaving the Indexing location/folder on the SSD when having Indexing enabled on the HDD and disabled on the SSD? Will this result in writes on the SSD?

Your SSD will explode.

Are you really concerned about writes? Really?

There are people who are NOT overly concerned with writes but just optimizing their SSD. Even though you say that SSDs are not too much write-problematic nowadays, can't one opt to setup his system to minimize it? I think there's nothing wrong with what he likes to do right now.

I see no point in going out of the way to move the indexing folder or any other system files to my HDD.

1. Because why should I? No point for me to do it if I don't have to. I like all my system files on the system drive, aka. on the SSD.
2. When I reinstall there will be hidden files I need to remember to erase on my HDD.

We have the same POV on this. I guess it really matters on our own opinions. I may suggest not doing what he's intending to do because it is not worth it but who knows if he's the kind of person who's very OC on things. But then again, we are here to help each other smile.gif

Haha. I am a "perfectionist" and like everything done "right" with the best optimizations. But if you say there is no need to move the Indexing location/folder (actually two of you) then I won't do it. Thanks anyway.

Ok, I have re started the entire process. I had an issue with the license of the copy of Win7 that I had. Got a new copy. Did a complete install. and followed the guide 101% exactly.

The system is STILL not recognizing the HDD.

Everything else runs great.

I can hear the HDD seeking on bootup and it slows boot time considerably compared to when it is not plugged in.

I have tried different SATA cables attached to different ports including the SATA 2, 3 and Marvel ports.

Still nothing.

When plugged into the Marvel port, I get a Marvel 88SE91xx initializing notice on startup.

In the BIOS the only SATA port that shows anything is the Corsair Force 3 SSD in my SATA3_1

I have both the Marvell SATA Operation Mode and the SATA Mode set to AHCI Mode

I am running in UEFI on a AsRock mobo

I have the DVD drive in the Marvell 1 port and it works fine

Any ideas? Im at a loss here. I even installed the SATA drivers as instructed in the guide

Thanks

dead drive i think. if it doesnt show in the bios its gone... can you update your bios first though just to make sure there is no update? can you try another system?
