Just a quick q, Sean. If I'm already on Win7 and I want to do that upgrade install, would I need to do any extra steps?

Hey, will raid 0 trim work for ssd's with IRST 11.5 and the latest bios for my motherboard? I've heard talk that you have to update the raid bios rom or something?

How do I update the BIOS ROM?
Is bios and bios rom two seperate things? I only know how to update bios. I see no downloads for bios rom on the asus website or google search.

Why does he need to update the OROM he has Z77? Shouldn't the 11.6 driver work in Windows 8?

I keep trying to do the upgrade install from the assistant manager. It installs, then restarts, then it shows the usual start up screen but with the W8 logo. Then it has "Readying Devices" at the bottom and a percentage, first time it froze at 52% and then after another try it froze during same step at 39%. Trying to figure out whats going wrong...might give it a day or two lol.
