post #21 of 24
depending on what sata ports you are using, you may have to leave if on native ide and then switch after the install (requires a registry change).

on my ud5 i had to leave it on native ide to get it to boot and then change to ahci

Is there an option to go to a boot option menu rather than the actual bios? For example for me del or f2 goes to bios but i think f10 or f12 just brings up a list of bootable devices straight away and you should be able to select the usb from there.

I tried the going to the F12 boot menu. I think that my MoBo might be faulty somehow, I remember it has this ability to charge USB devices while the PC is off, this feature has not been working for along time. or maybe that my MoBo is simply too old (6 years of daily usage)

Reboot.
It will now automatically boot from your USB Key.
If the BIOS fails to detect your USB Key then Unplug and Replug it whilst on this BIOS screen, reboot, then go back into the BIOS and try again.
It will now appear.

As I said earlier, the whole PC hangs on the BIOS loading screen right at the startup, and if you are at the BIOS, and you have inserted the Flash Disk the PC will also hang there, even if you remove it you still need to do a hard restart to get things working again. so I can not do anything while the Flash disk is plugged in.

Anyway people, I did install win7 form a DVD, things went as usual, the SSD and the old HDD are working flawlessly.
+Rep to useful infos.

Hello again biggrin.gif

Thought it is a good idea to post some testing result, I would like to hear from you whether I have configured the SSD properly or not:

Used CrystalDisklMark, using default settings:

SSD result:


Old HDD result (for comparison):


and here is CrystalDiskInfo:


BTW, I tried to install the official Sandisk SSD Dashboard (1.4.3), but it crashes immediately. do I need such program to maintain the SSD?

Thanks.
