Just installed a new SSD, many questions.

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Just reinstalled Windows on a Crucial M4, it's currently plugged into the Blue Sata port, (Asus P8P67 Pro). I think that's the Sata 6? Anyways, it doesnt seem to be much faster. Is there a way to get rid of the Asus screen at the beginngi of startup? The one that tells me to enter the bios (blue screen with asus on it)

If this is your first time upgrading the FW you better read the Firmware Update Guide FIRST!thumb.gif

I have had the Crucial M4 128Gb for a few months and i had to update the firmware (which was easy). The drives are now shipping with the latest firmware (0009) so If you want to check what version yours has, I'd download something like Crystal Disc Info: http://download.cnet.com/CrystalDiskInfo/3000-2086_4-10832082.html

First, you have the drive plugged into the wrong SATA port. The two grey connectors are the Intel 6GB/s ports. this is where you need to be plugged in to. the dark Blue connections are also 6GB/s, but they are controlled by a marvel controller that is not as fast as the Intel. The 4 light blue connectors are 3GB/s.

You can disable the ASUS slpash screen in the UEFI (BIOS) if you choose. Go to the "Boot" tab, and disable the "Full Screen LOGO" option.

While you are in the UEFI, if you are looking to speed up your boot...

If you have nothing left plugged into your Marvel ports, you can turn them off, and save around 5 seconds in the POST process. There is no reason to have them turned on if not in use. On the "advanced" tab, go into "Onboard devices" menu, and disable the Marvel Controller. You can do the same for VIA Firewire 1394a controller, and the JMicron e-SATA (JBM controller) if you don't use them. Alternatively, if you use the Marvel or Jmicron controllers, you can just disable the "splash" screens by leaving the controllers "enabled" and disabling just the settings for the OPROM (options Read Only Memory) for one or both. This also save time during POST.
