I installed windows XP 64 bit pro, and then windows 7 64 home upgrade version.
I had to install XP on IDE mode, and after that I installed windows 7 on AHCI (which is the mode currently on).
Now my system either works wonderfully, or works horribly, I have a feeling it has nothing to do with my install method.
Either my startups are SUPER FAST - less than 10 seconds.
Or my windows stuck entirly on STARTING WINDOWS screen, after the logo appears from the darkness, it stays ther for a minute or more, and then finally logs in.
Its like 1, 2, 3, fast boots, 4, 5, 6 ,7 super slow boots. WHAT THE HELL?
I'm frustrated, can't find any solutions.
I'm using Crucial 256 gb the m4 series.
