Windows 7: Windows Startup Repair query

I'm nearly sure I restarted. I just did another restart and ran the test again. Different results again. Also attaching disk drives screengrab:

I also notice this driver update on the Dell site, for my PC. Should I install it?:

Did you get to this update automatically or manually?

Neither your SSD is PCIe nor your RAID card an Intel one, unless I am missing something.

You can check the details etc though.

You get different results each run, very confusing. Now read is good enough and write has doubled. 4ks have gone down, variation in access times as well.

I logged in with my service tag, and in the drivers section, that was the top of the list.

Yeah, very strange indeed about the different results. It's getting late here, I will leave it at that tonight. This saga really is drawing out, but thanks so much for your patience.

I think the next best move is the SSD wipe once my Windows 7 disc arrives from Dell, would you agree?

No worries, I was really hoping that the SSD move would correct the performance issue

Before the install disk arrives:
- Search for a live Linux distribution with SSD performance benchmark
- Take the SSD to a friend, attach it like a data disk and run AS SSD there. If it underperforms there too, then there is a problem with the drive.

Chances are they saw some advantage to SSD on RAID controller if there is a specified driver for that build.

Secure Boot is only for Win8. Must be disabled. What other settings avail for UEFI, CSM, Legacy BIOS?

Yeah, so was I. Could I connect it to my laptop somehow to test it? Or would that just be messy?

Hmm, if your laptop has 2 HDD slots of course. Or if you have a USB3 dock.

I'd love to plug it in externally, but would probably need a special cable for this.

Just about that message I was getting upon boot GokAy. Would that be simply because the PC was built to only have the SSD in the first place I had it? In the Raid part. Maybe it is not built to be put in a Sata place like we currently have it?

Or is that just an assumption by me that shouldn't exist?
