MicroCenter 128GB SSD booting problems - Page 2

post #11 of 17
Thread Starter 
I don't think it has something to do with the OS, it is just not showing up during the BOOT process, I have to reset pc 4-6 times to see it on my boot list.

IDE mode, I may try that option, I was wondering what would be the windows7 registry tweak for it? I know I have to change some setting when you are going from IDE-->AHCI.

Is it same for AHCI--->IDE ??

So RMA has to be done through Micro Center or IPSG (they are the microcenter's tech support I guess).

I've already tried it with A-DATA, it is a no-go, they don't support it at all.

I did not see you mention that you tried a new SATA cable?

I have four of the 64GB SSD in RAID0 and I used to occasionally get one of them disappearing from the array. I was using the OEM SATA cables from my motherboard bundle.

I replaced the cables, and have not had a re-occurrence in a couple months.

Sorry, I forgot the mention about it.
My port0 uses a black bundled sata cable, and port4 uses another red sata cable (dell i guess).

These cables were used in my regular HDD array. Never had problem before.

But i will try another cable from anothe port.

The difficulty here is, I cannot reproduce this problem all the time. It will take a while to figure it out i guess.

Update:
I've talked to MicroCenter tech support, they advised to use IDE mode not the AHCI.

Any valid reason for that?

No idea, everything I read says AHCI is the way to go for SSD performance.

You don't have to change anything in the operating system to switch to IDE mode, only when going the other way. If it works using IDE mode it eliminates the possibility of the drive being bad and it would be an issue with your RAID/AHCI controller. Sorry for the late reply, let us know if you've fixed the issue.
