Congrats Mike, glad you got it sorted.

Any bump in benchmarks is a good bump

This was bugging me, it might have been something with the Macrovision installer, I've never used it or read anything about it, a quick google yielded little info.

Option for next time, there's always an option, try disabling marcovision in msconfig startup tab.

Still wondering how the Series 5 driver was Intel and the AS SSD said the driver was msachi?
It is a good thing as the old Intel driver can not pass the Trim command, but still !?!

The scores are all about the same, so I'll stick with it.

Just wondering if the Intel ToolBox works with the msachi driver?
Mike was having trouble with secure erase, thought the driver might be the problem.

If you get a chance try the ToolBox, check everything except the secure erase

The old driver when I clicked properties then Driver "Details" as in below Snip.
There were 3 Intel drivers listed but none iastor and one MS Msahci driver.
So it was using a MS AHCI driver in the Intel package.

All four had certificates.

The original ASUS/Intel driver had no AHCI mode. You had to download and use Intel Matrix for Raid which gave you AHCI.
It was strictly Raid no option for a single hard drive with AHCI mode.
You had to select at least two hard drives to activate and install it from floppy or USB, etc.

So MS added the Mshaci when it installed the other Msahci for functionality.

The msahci driver does work with the toolbox. The only problem is secure erase but I can get it to work with the x25-M which I have. I think the problem was Hoppy's 320 with incription. Just a guess. But the toolbox will work for me with msahci. I'm trying iastor now just to see if there is a difference.

Ive had no issues with the Ms AHCI driver either.

However, as I mentioned previously, I did have issues trying to Secure Erase my Intel SSD.
After deleting the partitions, and cycling the power, it would just keep refreshing. It would not actually initiate the SE.

For me, the fix was indeed using the Intel AHCI drive, iastore.
Im using the 02HD FW on my X-25V if that makes a difference.
