Samsung 830 SSD not able to set as boot drive Tags: SSD Boot Storage Last response: June 11, 2012 2:35 AM in Storage Share 4DC_Resin_Smoker June 10, 2012 10:08:57 PM I've attempted to Windows Vistat my SSD as the boot drive, however I run into the following issues. -Windows installer states, Can not not set drive as boot because drive is using GPT partition. -When I attempt to set the bios from SATA mode to AHA (not sure if i have the acromym right) the drive is still not able to be installed to by windows. Be aware that when in SATA mode all drive including the SSD are visible to both the bios and the OS. Any ideas folks ?

All you need to do is reformat the partition. Go into disk management. Delete the partition and reformat it to NTFS, and allocation size 4096. 4DC_Resin_Smoker June 11, 2012 2:35:37 AM Yeah the drive was set to ACHI but the drives default partition made it impossible to use as a boot drive. (as i later discovered) Changing the partition resolved the situation. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
