    HP OEM (X-25M 160GB) / Windows boot after undock

    tsalzer

      I discovered an interesting problem with an Intel SSD that has been built in a new HP Elitebook 8440p. As the Notebook even has been exchanged I am sure that this problem is relevant with all actual HP Elitebook Notebooks with an Intel SSD.

      Windows: Win 7 Enterprise (or Pro) 64bit

       

      Problem: After Windows shutdown in a docking station, the next undocked reboot does not work properly and is extremely slow. If you log into windows the aero mode is disabled and you get an error message that some service cannoct connect to the reporting services. the shutdown after the login is nearly impossible, so after some time you have to kill the system by pressing the power button for some time. If you shut down windows without having been logged in, the next system start performs regular.

       

      with a regular HDD instead of the SSD the fault does not come up.

       

      I've tried a lot of things:

       

      * shut down in ds - take out of ds, bring into ds - boot - regular
      * shut down in ds - take out of ds - change from SSD to HDD - boot regular - change from HDD to SSD - boot fault

      * I have tried two different notebooks, have tries several reinstalls of Windows 7 - no changes
      * Hot undock - shut down windows - fault occures ad next boot

       

      Maybe anyone here has a guess? For some reason If I shut down windows in the docking station and then undock the system the SSD's behavior is not correct - maybe a power problem?
