SATA 6/gbs port Tags: SSD SATA Storage Last response: November 28, 2012 1:31 AM in Storage Share borisbulldog November 17, 2012 4:01:00 PM I'll be building a new z75 board shortly and will load Win 7 on a new SSD. My question, does it matter which port 0/1 or 6/7 I hook up the SSD OS to? Also are the 0/1 headers Intel and the 6/7 Marvell?

There's 4 red 6.0GS SATA boards labeled 0/1 6/7 and 4 black 3.0GBS ports labled 2/3 and 4/5. I assume the 0 or 1 is where I'd plug the SSD drive. m 0 l Related resources Can a mSATA SSD be put in a SATA 6Gb/s port? - Forum Can i connect a 6GB/s HDD on a 3GB/s SATA port?

When reboot it says no hard disks found but I thought that was because windows hasnt formatted the disk yet. Any clues? Thanks FIXED- The problem was the Samsung 830 SSD. It was defective and was not being recognized by any of the SATA ports. I sent it back and opted for a Crucial M4 256GB and the BIOS instanly picked it up and I was able to load Win 7. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
