Hi guys, I just spent the last 30 minutes trying to fix something I messed up in my BIOS concerning my SSD. I initially ran AS SSD benchmark to determine how fast my SSD was working. That software told me I had pciide driver handling my SSD, so I did what I read online about changing my registry to allow me to switch the BIOS to AHCI. I opened regedit and found that the start setting was already to 0 as it was supposed to be (not 1), so I rebooted and fiddled with the BIOS settings. I think the BIOS showed PCH and GSATA ports in IDE mode, so I switched them to AHCI and then I got a bootmgr missing error. I switched things back and then was able to boot into Win7 (GSATA is still in AHCI mode).
This shows the results of AS SSD benchmark after getting Win7 to boot and operate with msahci driver at the helm. The image shows the new scores and the old scores.
Does this seem like the numbers I should be getting from a Crucial M4 64GB SSD? I know they're not the best SSDs, but they're priced well!
Also, is there anyway to determine if I'm running off the Marvell SATA ports or the Intel SATA ports?
Thanks a ton!
