OCZ SSD Wont Boot!

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
Alright so all of a sudden my 60GB SSD drive went down and my computer shut down.

The drive shows up in BIOS perfectly fine. I also attached it as a secondary drive on another PC I have at the office and it sees the drive and I can browse all of the files on the drive. However I am not able to get this thing to boot for the life of me. I have tried changing the SSD from the Marvell 88SE91XX to the standard mobo SATA chipset. I have also tried using ACHI it was set to IDE by default.

I unplugged the drive for a while and one time got it to boot back up fine and then went down again? Makes no sense to me, when connecting it as a second drive on another PC it always works. I tried swapping the Sata connectors out with ones that I know work with other drives and it doesnt make a difference. The drive is seen in BIOS just not bootable. Also if I have it set to use the Marvell controller it says the drive is unconfigured not sure if that makes a difference.

I am not sure what else to do and the biggest problem is I am the IT director and I have a **** load of work piling up because I can't assist anyone with a down computer. Please help quickly if you can.

SSD= Agility 3 60GB
Mobo = MSI X58A-Gd45
Tried using the Marvell 6GBPS RAID controller as well as the Intel ICH10R neither works with either IDE or AHCI mode.
Marvell Firmware version is 2.2.0.1108

The drive was originally set to use the Marvell RAID Controller. I see its set to use ACHI mode I dont see any option to change that to IDE. In the normal BIOS for the motherboard I can set th ICH10R chipset to IDE but when I put the drive on that connection it still doesnt boot.

I had trouble with me OCZ SSD's (60 GB Vertex 2, 120 GB Vertex 3, 120 GB Solid 3) as well.

I had to disable S.M.A.R.T. monitoring in the BIOS. For some reason the odd time my system just would not recognize my SSD's and I would have to turn off and unplug my machine for them to boot again. Once I disabled S.M.A.R.T. I never had issues again after that. And I have mine set to AHCI perfectly fine.

Did you try a different SATA controller? I know my SSD'd won't boot off the Marvell controller even when I set it in the BIOS to be able to boot from it.
