Do you have this installed?: http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=17851

It doesn't really matter much anyways. Some drives get a boost in performance tho.

Got worse after the installation :s I could swear I was getting better than this last windows installation

Edit: I can't find a backup of my previous install's as-ssd run, so I'll have to have a look around to see where I stand

Your good though. That is margin or error. The best, and I mean best I have ever gotten was 687. Normally I get like 640-660. Don't bother benching anymore either you just wear the drive for no reason. Leave as is. I think an older driver does perform better though. I forgot which one I used that performed the best.

I have a strange issue going on with a machine here.

Fresh GBP install of Win7 64bit on a fresh Crucial M4. Also have a 1 TB storage drive. When I install the intel Rapid Storage drivers, the storage drive... Disappears.

Strange thing is, in the Intel Rapid Storage Technology window, it will see the HDD, but nowhere else. Disk management, or Computer, or anything like it. Not even device manager.

I then uninstall the Intel drivers, restart, so standard msAhci drivers are used. There the drive is again. Running in AHCI mode from beginning to end.

Any ideas why this is happening? Have tried different ports, the Matrix Storage utility have also been installed, with same results, gone HDD.

Specs:

Asus p8z68-V Pro with latest BIOS
Crucial M4 64GB 0309
Samsung spinpoint F3 1TB (the one that disappears)
i5 2500k

You may have to format the drive. I had that issue before when I had an issue with SRT and I stopped it and reinstalled. I had to format the HDD when I had the msahci driver installed then install the intel one, then it worked fine.

Think it has anything to do with the GPT install? I did not encounter this problem last time I installed, on the exact same machine, just not with a GPT install.

Should I just format it, or delete the volume, and then make a new then format?

Just gonna back the drive up first.

Idk, but in disk part run the clean command then format the HDD. Then it should work fine.

Sure, thanks. I'll update when done smile.gif

Edit: Worked great, thanks for the help. Still don't get why that happened. Btw, I made it as a GPT drive as well, anything wrong with that? It's just a Storage/App drive.

Glad it worked out. And no problem with it being a GPT drive as well, all the drives in my system are GPT.

ok solution ..for me....M4 firmware update to 0309 was a serious B*t*ch ..
unplug everything but optical and SSD..
make sure bios is set to IDE or ACHI
and make sure they are on the same sata driver ports.. not marvel controller dark blue
and not sata 6 gb...grey
be sure they are on sate ports 0-3..first 4 only..so for this MB only ports 3 and 4 work
.
10 hours of my life working every combo and reading every blog and tech notes to make it work...
hope this saves some of you time
