I had to connect the SSD directly to port 0 (or 1 depending on your motherboard, but technically your lowest number SATA port).

Remove all other HDD and SSD's Leave only the CD/DVD drive if your installing by CD if not then remove as well.


Hope this helps.

Hmm. I did disconnect my other drives, but my SSD is not in the lowest SATA port. I will try that. Is that just good practice anyways?

Does anyone think a UEFI setup is worth it? I am close to just going with legacy bios settings and msdos partitioning...

Uefi is supposed to be faster but i can only see it on benchmarks period.

It is a best practice and mostly a bug on windows 8. But its always good to have your primary in port 0

When I think about it, I don't think it's worth it. It's just a different style of partitioning and booting. The extra partitions might be a bit annoying. UEFI needs a FAT32 partition for the boot loader.

Then there's that faster booting as a plus. But that's not really that much. It's just a second or two or something along those lines. Windows still has to boot like always after it's started by the BIOS. I don't think that will go faster.

I don't know how your board works, but mine will always take a pretty long time to boot. I think it's mostly checking if the RAM speed settings work right and perhaps the same for the PCI-E connection to the graphics card. I believe I noticed boot taking longer if I overclock RAM.
