I currently have the following.
Kingston SNVP325-S2 SSD and WDC WD500gb ATA
These are on an ASUS P6X58D-E Board with an Intel 930 CPU.
The drivers are the Microsoft Default drivers with Windows 7 Professional x64 build 7600.
I DO NOT want RAID, but I do want the best I can get for the SSD. I have a message into
Kingston, but no response yet.
The BIOS is set at IDE, the default, and AHCI keeps Windows from Booting so that is a problem I
am trying to track down. I hear there is a register fix, but only hear, no solution. I do not want to
re-install the OS on the SSD as again I hear the SSD must be CLEAN before the install. This would
of course wipe out 9 months of work. I am not willing to do this.
I am replying to my post. I found the Registry change that supposedly will have Windows install the AHCI drivers. HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CURRENTCONTROLSET\SERVICES
RIGHT CLICK START
MODIFY Change 3 to 0
Re-Boot to Change BIOS Settings to AHCI.
I am still wondering if I need this in order to have TRIM do its job.
I checked and TRIM commands are ENABLED.
