Kingston Hyper X. BSOD

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I have a Kingston Hyper X 120gb SSD. I installed win7 on it in AHCI and a few other programs BF3, Quicken and use my WD HD for everything else. I used Sean's guides to set everything up and it's been working great until the other day when I was playing BF3 the game started acting up and finally locked up then I got the BSOD.
I tried to reboot but when I did it came up and said I didn't have proper boot sequence. I went into BIOS and SSD was not listed in boot devices went to see if Sata was still in AHCI and it was but no SSD. For the hell of it I changed it to IDE and the SSD showed back up. I booted backup and it seems to run alright, I tried to update firmware and I got fatal error E00000057, restarted computer and tried to update again it seemed to update but when I checked the version it hadn't updated. I went back into BIOS and tried changing back to AHCI and SSD disappears.
What am I doing wrong or what do I need to do to get SSD to update firmware and work in AHCI again? Reinstall OS and start over or RMA SSD?

Thanks

You say you installed a ACHI driver... You may want to use the MS ACHI driver but that depends you what motherboard you have (my CH III Mobo does not have separate ACHI drivers so I installed nothing to get ACHI to work properly).

I pulled this from another post about getting back the standard windows driver for ACHI (Sean Webster posted it originally, so all credit goes to him):

The reason the updater is not showing your drive is b/c you have the AMD SATA driver installed and not the default Windows one, they need to fix that issue with the updater. But it doesn't matter b/c your firmware is up to date anyways.

But say there is another update just do this to view the drive in the updater:

1.Click Start
2.In the Start menu, type Device Manager, hit Enter
3.Click "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers"
4.You will see AMD SATA Controller, Intel SATA controller, etc., right click and click "Properties"
5.Go to the "Driver" tab
6.Click "Update Driver"
7.Click "Browse my Computer"
8.Click "Let me pick"
9.You will see the option to choose "Standard AHCI 1.0 Serial ATA Controller", click this and click "Next" and let it install

I may be a little off in finding your particular problem (im pretty sleep deprived from working nights...). Hopefully some one will jump in and help me out.

When I go into IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers all I see is:
ATA Channel 0
ATA Channel 0
ATA Channel 0
ATA Channel 1
ATA Channel 1
ATA Channel 1
Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller
Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller
Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller

I do not have a AMD SATA Controller showing up. If I go into bios and change it to AHCI, when it boots up I get the following message.

Reboot and Select proper Boot device or Insert Boot Media in Selected Boot device and press a key

because it does not detect my ssd when I change to AHCI in bios ever since I got the bsod. When I installed os I initially picked AHCI, don't know what happened since bsod.
