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?

Thanks,

Boris

Each motherboard is different and you want to make sure that the SSD is connected to the Intel sata3 port. Intel will usually have two sata3 ports while Marvell will have up to 6.

Thanks for the reply.

I should have been more specific, I have a EVGA Z75 SLI board. 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.

Yes in your case the two ports labled 0 and 1 are the Intel ports and the OS drive should be in the 0 port.

Ok got the ssd in port 0 and booted from bluray disk and win 7 is asking me where to install windows and my ssd is not showing up in the option box.

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.
