Hello, I have a question about my SSD. I have an SSD OCZ vertex but sometimes it doesn't show up when I boot up. This has been a problem for awhile. I am going to try changing the sata cable up to see if that makes the difference. I only recently wiped and shifted my windows to the SSD drive. So now I can really notice when it isn't booting up with the computer. Any other thoughts for possible solutions? Thanks, Nick.
Hmm you need to boot from another drive to install the new OCZ firmware. Which is a problem because my bootable is that drive. I guess this will push me to make a linux bootable as well. Was planning to anyway.
If you have a usb stick then you can make it bootable and load Liux on it to do the firmware update. I had done that at one tiime when I owned an OCZ SSD and it worked fine as long as you follow the instructions.
For some reason when I popped in my new 3TB HD windows wouldn't made me leave 746.52GB unallocated. It will not let me do anything with it, not make a new volume or anything. Figured that was like a sign for me to pop linux on that.
There are tow options with 3 tb hard drives and they are MBR and GPT if you use GPT on a 3 tb hard drive it allows you to use the whole drive and in a lot if instances with older motherboards you run into the 2.2 TB limit on hard drives.
