Windows 7: Aspire Revo Bios/Drivers for esata

Aspire Revo Bios/Drivers for esata

My ASPIRE REVO works fine until I try to get it to communicate with an external esata SSD ( OCZ Vertex ). Communication with the drive is random. I need advice on Bios settings please to ensure solid BIOS detection.

Windows 7 Ultimate Signature Edition

can we get the serial number or exact model number(not series number) it will make finding the drivers much easier.

I have added the serial numbers for the computer and the motherboard to my system details.
The PC was delivered with Vista installed and I have since wiped it and installed Windows 7 ultimate.
Can you please clarify for me from where the sata drivers and bios drivers originate ?
I realise that this is probably a stupid question but I find that I am confused as to what drivers (if any) are installed when I install windows and what drivers are altered when I upgrade the "chipset Drivers" etc.
Also one last question. Does the esata port need to be setup with different drivers/settings than the sata port which of course powers the internal sata hard drive. ?
Trying again to get things working yesterday points towards sata driver settings
Many thanks

What is the correct setting in BIOS for eSATA?
An eSATA bracket came with my GA-EP45-UD3P Gigabyte motherboard. It has a molex to SATA power, 2 eSATA ports and an eSATA to normal SATA cable so I can run internal hard drives externally. It is really nice. My board has 2 (two) SATA controllers. The ICH10-R controls 6 ports and a Gigabyte (or...
