SSD sometimes not recognised Tags: SSD Storage Last response: December 6, 2012 11:08 AM in Storage Share teykila December 6, 2012 8:05:29 AM Hello, I have installed an SSD Intel 330 with a fresh Win7(x64) install. AHCI is enable. Other SATA drive: Seagate baracuda 7200.12 LiteOn DVD drive IDE Drive: Maxtor Sometimes, i get a SMART error at boot because the drive is not recognised by the system. I have to connect to another SATA port for the drive to be seen again. Then it works perfectly. It happens every 7 or 8 boot. Intel SSD Toolbox reports the drive is fine. The latest firmware is installed. Motherboard: Gigabyte MA770T-UD3P SATA drivers: Windows 7 native I have not installed any motherboard drivers, i am using all windows 7 default. I will try to isolate the problem by using only the SSD for a while, to check the behaviour. Have you seen anything like this? Thanks. Jeff.

If the drive is not detected, i guess it has nothing to do with the AHCI drivers? it is more about BIOS version or a problem with the MB Sata port ? Can't find your answer ? Ask !
