Thx.
Nope there actually is no difference. I HDDs have firmware updates too and the SATA controller should be set to AHCI for them as well.

a few times ago, i've installed windows in my ssd (in PC, have UEFI motherboard) using your guide --> Configure drive using an UEFI motherboard and GPT format:. now i wanna use that ssd in my
notebook (i think this notebook doesn't have UEFI, only BIOS). the problem is in notebook's bios doesn't show Windows Boot Manager option on the list of booting order, so windows can't loaded frown.gif
i've usually load windows after choose Windows Boot Manager option in my PC, but after my ssd move to notebook, that options doesn't show again so windows can't load
i've tried repair using windows installer disc, but doesn't work frown.gif
what should i do now? must i reinstall/ fresh install windows using MBR method? or do you have some tricks to solve this problem without reinstall windows?

thanks before thumb.gif
note : my notebook is asus N43SL VX-263, somebody says this NB already has UEFI

Yep should have used MBR, but also they could be driver conflicts from going from your desktop and to your laptop...just reinstall in the laptop if you are using it in the laptop.

so i'll try to install using MBR method
must i do secure erase for my ssd?? or just install windows using mbr method?

Yea, it isn't going to hurt anything. I think a BIOS update will get rid of it tho lol.
