Thank you for any help you can provide!!
I just built this computer (details below). Testing memory, GPU, and CPU went well.
It will be used for video capture with simultaneous acquisition and analysis in real time in a university research setting.
Write speed and volume are important, thus the 1TB SSD for storage drive.
The newest IRSTe Intel Rapid Storage Technology enterprise drivers were installed initially.
Once the system was up and running, the SSD (Transcend SSD370, 2.5", 1TB) was connected via second SATIII port (System drive is on first SATIII Port).
Control Panel>>Administrative Tools >>Computer Management >>Disk Management.
Drive was there. Initialized the drive. Right clicked over where it says unallocated and selected create new simple volume.
SSD Scope (Transcend SSD management) recognized the drive and Firmware was already up to date. Performance tested drive.
On reboot, drive is not found by SSD Scope.
Disk management does not see drive.
Device manager also does not see it.
I tried different cables.
Made sure "show empty drives" was selected.
Used Diskpart to clean.
AHCI is enabled.
The disc shows up in BIOS and IRSTe.
In IRTSe, drive is listed as Locked and I can not unlock as it asks for a password!
I did not set any password, only connected the new SSD.
Status Locked (clicking Unlock - leads to asking for password)
Type SATA SSD
Location Controller 0 Port 1
Password protected: yes????
Command cueuing NCQ
SCSI Dev ID 1
Physical sector size 512 byte
Logical sector size 512 byte
Can anyone help me correct this situation?
Transcend says uninstall IRSTe and use native SATA drivers in windows.
Rumor has it that IRSTe is faster...?
