GRRR! In BIOS I moved Boot to SSD and I get worse tests

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi, I have Samsung 830 SSD in Intel Sata II port (Sabertooth x58 motherboard). In my PC some days ago I installed Windows 7 in SSD but in BIOS the Boot was in another drive with RAID0 array. Today, with Windows 7 recovery consolle I have created the Boot in SSD but I have noticed now I get worse tests.
These are two tests, before (with Boot in "D" RAID) and after (with Boot in SSD):
501
501
I thought getting better tests, instead I get worse tests. Why please?

if you didnt align your mechanical drives before cloning your boot onto the ssd then windows isnt properly configured for your ssd hence the worse test results

Can you explain better please? I don't understand what you are telling me. In your opinion is it better formatting and to install windows 7 again or I can to work in this way? Thanks.

A 4 point drop does not indicate worse performance, neither would a 40 point drop imho.

Score will move around some depending upon a load of factors.

Sure but it takes the some time (seconds) for doing the Boot as before.

you shouldn't repeatedly test an SSD, it wont go up. the only reason that drive is only getting a 260mb read is because you are stuck on Sata II. if you still have raid active, then the boot time will still seem just as long because you still have to wait for the raid controller to initialize.

May be you don't understand me or I don't understand you. Why are you telling it? I have 2 drives in RAID0 ans SSD Samsung now has the files of Boot. I have deleted the files of Boot in a different drive because I have formatted it. I can tell you for the Boot now I have to wait for 40 seconds, around the same time when I had not Samsung.

because you are still waiting for the raid controller to initialize during bootup. afaik it takes about 10 seconds at least, depending on the board BIOS and what raid controller it uses. if possible, make sure you have your SATA set on AHCI instead of IDE. im not sure you can do that considering you have raid enabled. also make sure your storage controller drivers are up to date.

In my motherboard Sabertooth x58 in BIOS I have enabled RAID, therefore there isn't the possibility to choose AHCI. I think RAID is the same AHCI. About drives, I have every driver up to date. Besides in my PC there is a Cardreader and in the Boot I think it sucks other time. However with Samsung 830 I think I have just recovered 2-3 seconds only on the Boot compared to the old drive.

You need to first do a fresh install of windows onto your ssd and not copy it from a mechanical drive. Secondly the reason your ssd is moving slowly is because you have your ssd hooked up through the raid controller you originally used for your two raid drives. Do a fresh install of your boot system to your ssd and you should notice a dramatic increase of time.

you cant clone your boot system to a ssd because they work differently than a mechanical drive. hence your ssd cant work like its supposed to
