I am having issues installing a Samsung 830 128g SSD. I have read some of the issues other people are having on this forum and other forums, but i see plenty of people running SSDs on this laptop. First off i did finally get everything updated as far as drivers, Bios, and Firmware. That was a nightmare, I have built plenty of computers over the last 15 years and never had the updating issues like i had with this laptop, but it is fully updated.
the Only way i can get the laptop to see the drive is in IDE, but windows 7 PRO will not install on it. The drivers for the Samsung 830 all say it will only run AHCI as per page7 of the booklet that came with the SSD under Bios Config. I got windows mostly installed but when it gets to config part it errors out. I tried to udate the SSD drivers but it will not see the DVD/CD drive without fully intsalling windows. Does anone have this SSD running on their Gx640 or had this same issue trying to install it into a laptop?
