Windows 7: My first solid state.

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit
 
 

I double check my Gigabyte board for its AHCI settings.

Heres how mine looks:
My first solid state.-1.jpg My first solid state.-2.jpg
My first solid state.-3.jpg


It does show IDE channels in the Bios, althoguh AHCi is in use.
However, at post, it shows :
Port 0 -Intel xxxxxx
Port 1: OCZ xxx
Port 2:
etc ..........


I thin the best bet ATM would be go into the bios main screen, and reset to "OPTIMIZED DEFAULTS"

Then, make what basic changes need to be made after the reboot. I/E disbale floppy if you do not use one etc.

The SATA AHCI Mode is for the Intel Chipset. This one needs to be set as AHCI.
Oboard IDE Controller should be Enabled.

The rest should probably be set to default.

I do not have the IDE/SATA option on my board, But perhaps it should be either set to SATA or disbaled.
I must admit Im not entirely sure here.
Im a bit confused, because looking up the specs ofg this board only makes mention of x6 SATA 2 ports on the Intel ICH9R.
No reference what so ever of a secondary chipset.

If the BSOD's are not happening I would say wait and see, you may well have solved the cause in the changes you have made. If of course they start again, we will have to start looking for the problem. Best make sure that the BIOS is correct first to rule that out as a cause.
