    Does it post if you remove the SSD with AHCI mode enabled?

    Have you updates your BIOS to the latest version?

    Yes,

     

    The Gigabyte has the latest BIOS. It will post with the SSD unplugged.

    ckett,

      If you were able to install win7 on the SSD, then after the installation it will not post suggest to me that you have a driver conflict.

     

    Which drivers were installed after win7 completed the installation.  Did you use Intels? Or did you use the default Microsoft drivers?  Also, how did you install win7 the first time?  Did you install with AHCI enabled or did you install with IDE enabled?

    I am pretty sure I installed with AHCI enabled. I may try to do all of this over again to better track what is working and what is not. It is my understaing that if you enable AHCI in the BIOS before installing Win7 that Win7 will default to using the Microsoft AHCI driver. However, when I boot up my computer the screen before Windows loads shows Intel AHCI in the title. How do I know for sure that the Windows AHCI driver is the one to be used?

    Go to Device manager, storage controllers, double click the one which controls your SSD, go to driver tab, click driver details.  If the driver listed is msahci.sys, then you're using the default microsoft ahci driver.

    I dont see a tab for Storage Controllers, but I do see under Drives - SSD - Driver Details - Shows C:\Windows\system32\Drivers\disk.sys and patmgr.sys

     

    I can see the acpi.sys driver in this Windows Driver folder. How can I change this?

    No, these are not the storage drivers.

    If you don't have a "Storage Controllers" section within the Device Manager, you will find the Controllers, which are managing your hdd/SSD within the "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers" section.

    Search for the drivers of the listed Controllers. PCIIDE.SYS is the name of the generic MS IDE driver and MSAHCI.SYS is the name of the generic MS AHCI driver. Both drivers do fully support the Trim command.

    Double-click your AHCI Serial ATA controller, click Driver, click Driver details and you should see msahci.sys listed--if you have the default AHCI driver installed by Windows.

    Running Windows 7 64-bit on Gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3R motherboard using Sata Port 1 for Boot SSD. I had similar boot problems too. Read somewhere that the bootup SSD should occupy Sata port 0, so I swapped from Sata 1 to Sata 0 and problem solved. Try swapping your Boot SSD to Sata port 0, Then in CMOS Setup>Advanced Bios >Hard Disk Boot Priority: set SSD as first drive.  Next, in CMOS Setup>Intergrated Periperals: Sata/Raid AHCI Mode: ACHI SATA AHCI Mode: ACHI Sata Port 0-3 Native Mode: Enabled Sata/IDE Device should be Enable Good Luck! My CrystalDiskInfo  Intel X-25 firmware 2CV102GP showed no Trim support, new firmware 2CV102HD shows TRIM supported. Using Microsoft msachi.sys driver I'm satisfied TRIM is working. 1st Run CrystalDiskMark 3.0 x64 Beta1             Read [MB/s]  Write [MB/s] Seq        260.70          87.41 512K        201.50          87.32 4K          20.11          48.91 4K QD32        159.20          86.69 2nd Run after 56GB of data added to Drive ------------------------------------------         Read [MB/s]      Write [MB/s] Seq        262.20          87.53 512K        202.00          87.62 4K          20.21          48.73 4K QD32        159.10          86.78

    Holy mother enchilada!

     

    I finally got AHCI mode to work.

     

    Thanks SIDG for the input. This was the magic setup. The Intel G2 is operating under the Windows msahci.sys controller.

     

    Excellent!

    I'm really out of my place talking about AHCI/IDE/RAID...

     

    I'm about to upgrade my firmware. I have my 160GB G2 on SATA0 and two other regular discs in RAID0 on SATA 2 and 3. In BIOS my SATA-configuration show up as RAID. Will this be a problem when upgrading? The SSD is not in RAID...

    No you should be fine to update your firmware.  You just need to temporarily change your bios to either IDE or AHCI (check the firmware update release notes for the best setting).  Once the update is complete, switch back to RAID.

    I updated my X25-m 80gb in exactly the same situation as you.

    Thank you dokh22.

     

    And I switch back before starting Windows7 for the first time after the upgrade?

    Yes that's right.  Switch back to whatever mode your bios was set to originally (in your case RAID) once the firmware update is complete.  If you try to load windows in a mode other than the one it was installed with, you'll probably get a BSOD.
