Windows 7: Show us your SSD performance

Do you have AS-SSD installed?

If you do open it BUT DO NOT RUN the test.

Post a Snip. We need to see what driver is installed now. You can see it will say Marvell or MSAHCI.

I would go with Option 2 you posted above.
Get the MSAHCI driver for the Marvell. Better speed than Intel ports and you will have TRIM.

It may already be installed. AS SSD will show which driver you have.
If MSAHCI is installed you are done.
If Marvell driver shows then try your second option.

As you can see on this it shows driver as- 2.11 msahci-OK

Mike, I had the same issue with my AMD board, It didn't have Marvell controllers but the AMD drivers didn't work too wel. So I used the msahci driver and it worked quite well.

Hopefully we can get HugeRaven straight after all my mis-information.

As best I understand it, you should be OK. You have the msahci driver, the 2.11 is the firmware on your SSD.

That is not his SNIP I posted.

I wanted HugeRaven to see where the driver was listed.

OK, then I made a mistake. Imagine that. It was my first mistake ever.

My SNIP i posted earlier was with the Marvel driver 1.2.0.1006 WHQL (Xp/Vista/7). I´m not home at the moment, at work but i will start AS SSD and make a screen dump for ya all to see what is sas as i have it installed, but i´m pritty sure it´s the Marvell driver MV.... showing. Then i should go with choice 2 and uninstalling the Marvell and so on.

Then i have two dumb question for ya, am i not risking the system not starting as the SSD is the system drive if i uninstall the driver?

And the
msahci driver, will it install automatically by it self?

If you know the Marvell is installed then uninstall it. No Snip necessary.

If by chance the Marvell is re installed on reboot then you will need to delete the Marvell driver not uninstall.
If Marvell driver is deleted then Windows will auto install the MSAHCI since the Marvell is no longer available.

No you are not risking the system.

I'm confirming what Essenbe posted- I think!!????

As with anything else you do, yes it is a risk, but would not hurt anything. But, I don't believe that will happen. What should happen is it will boot into wndows and you will get a pop up saying that windows is loading drivers, then ask for a re boot. reboot and you will be using the msahci drivers.

Mike, it should be the same as changing to ahci from ide. Except the registry does not need to be changed because he is in ahci, the bios does not need to be changed because it is already correct. So, we are at the last step in the tutorial on the change. It should work right. But, should does not mean it will, as you are dealing with a computer.

EDIT: If it does not boot into windows, you are not risking damage to the system. It will hurt nothing.
