You have to install the driver at the windows setup when it asks for it. When you see the drives at the setup asking where you want to put windows.

If you can't see it in there something is a miss.

But, the windows installer is not recognizing it, while the boot section of the bios is.

What do i do? Should i install any driver?
do you have the drivers ? if so install them at wndows setup and see if that helps.

Go to the mother board home page & look in the download section. You should find it in there.

That didn't do it. I contacted crucial and they told me to update the firmware. I however made a huge mistake, i didn't check my Firmware version assuming it was 001. It was actually 006, and i "updated" it to 002. Now, when i boot my computer, the Bios screen after the Marvell loading one, kind of freezes, unabling me to enter the bios. I changed from 6 GB sata to 3 GB sata, and now it freezes for one minute, and loads normally. However, the SSD won't be detected by the controller. The bios will though.

So whenever i am on the bios, i can choose two of those drives. But, when i try to update it to 006 it says no drives could be found. Also, when the marvell controller is loading, it also says no hard drives could be found.

What do i do? I have tried setting it to IDE Compatible, AHCI and Raid, but no good results. Any kind of feedback will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Alex.
