right now i didnt install IRST drive at all. my mobo disk has IRST enterprise drive and whenever i install this drive im getting crash.. even its fresh new OS install nothing done to pagefile, or hibernate
stuff im having trouble.. and i cant find any answer from anywhere. and also i tried your link to install IRST but, i cant install and im getting error message 'this computer does not meet the minimum
requirements for installing software'. i didnt set any raid. and now its working perfectly fine without IRST , but should i skip the IRST part? or is any possible ways to install IRST?

I had the exact same problem. At first I changed the JMicron port to AHCI instead of IDE. The problem was that my SSD was on the Intel SATA port and not the JMicron port.

Go back into your BIOS and make sure that AHCI is enabled on the correct SATA port that your SSD is on. You also have to do a fresh re-install of windows in order for it to become enabled, or edit the registry.

We also have the exact same SSD's, so I hope it works for you thumb.gif

im not even sure is this installed correctly or not..

there are total 8 sata connector on motherboard .

i put SSD and ODD 6gb/s connectors with 6gb cables

x2 HDD on 3gb/s connectors with 6gb cables.

and x2 6gb/s marvel connector is empty ( its for ssd caching)
and also another x2 3gb/s is empty as well.

checked AHCI is enable.

When you go into your SATA configuration inside your BIOS, do either of the two brown SATA ports say "enabled"? If neither of them do, then it's not connected to the Intel 6Gb/s ports.

So my problem is i cannot load BF3 anymore. It just hangs in the joining server mode in battlelog. I researched alot and i did see a few areas where people where talking about the regedit. but they were changing destinations and stuff. will me following that step to disable it cause this problem?


thank you for any feed back. i appreciate this.

hmm, I have no idea what is causing it. Maybe ask in the gaming section here about it. Changing registry settings can cause issue if you do something wrong, but that is what system restore is for.

So Sean, i think i did some crap. When i follow your guide it install everything as it should, but when i actually get in the using windows part the SSD has already 50GB os space used and i have a 128gb Samsung 830. I tried both MBR and GPT AND normal way, all didn't work... Do you know i might have screwed it up ?

Thanks a lot.

I`m booting it from a UEFI usb. Does that influence on anything at all ? Should i just go for a CD/DVD normal way ? When you say normal i have to exclude and format everything and just install right ?

Ignore previous post, lol, now I can help ROFL.

You are able to boot the installer right? Like load up the windows screen to install and all?

Try not booting it from the UEFI, just boot the USB from the regular boot option, not UEFI USB option.

Then do the MBR alignment part.

Only have the drive you are installing to plugged in the system.
