can someone just confirm with me what should be my first thing to do once i power it up?
-flash the FW using intel's .iso boot disc
-then what?
Make sure you set your BIOS IDE mode to AHCI when you first pop it in. It activates all the real goodness of an SSD drive. I have a P180, and instead of having to buy an adapter, you can mount it in the 3.5" floppy bay. Food for thought. The screw holes should line up. Cheers. ENjoy your SSD, I sure am!

Add me. I have:

1 ~X25-M G2 80GB
2 ~X18-M G1 80GB (160GB RAID0)



I just found out that one of my X18M drives has firmware 8610 and the other has the updated 8820. Now I'm going to have to break my RAID0 so that I can update it. On the plus side the newer firmware shows better performance...

Current benches:

Single 80GB SSD, RAID0 160GB:


The following are the RAID0 160GB SSD volume:





And for comparison my 80GB X25M g2 drive in my laptop (p6860FX)

I got my intel SSd and I installed w7 and forgot to change to ahci mode in bios

now I want to reformat and reinstall with ahci on in bios. The problem is I can't boot from my DVD drive with my w7 install disc. How do I fix this?

Changing SATA modes messes with the boot order for me. You might want to check that on your BIOS. You can also try to boot from the optical drive using the boot menu modern BIOSes have.

Does ahci mode really effect the performance? I have mine running in ide and the speed seems fine to me.
