installing a new SSD

just purchased a new samsung 830 SSD and im having a bit of trouble. i did a fresh win7 install on it after i set it to AHCI in the bios from the RAID setting i had previously and now it is showing up as removable media in the win notification center.. im not sure if i need the correct intel drivers, or if i need to keep my other drives unplugged while installing win7 to the ssd.. not sure..

dont believe anything you hear and only half of what you see

Always call the vendor for a solution. You paid for that support when you bought the drive. If they provide a solution, please share it.

AFAIK it's always a good idea to unplug all others during installation. Also unselect hot swappable in bios if there is such a setting and make sure you have the latest bios and driver for the SSD.

That was a bad idea.
SATA Chipset Mode needs to be set to IDE, AHCI, or RAID before Windows installation; changes after can cause serious problems.

If possible do a clean re-install.

i did that.. it says there i did the fresh install after i set it..

anyways, ive also heard that you can have it set to raid as well, you just cant have it in an actual array on that controller... also that you should use the intel controller rather than any other 3rd party onboard controller.. my mobo has two.

I made same mistake before 3 months. But it is easy repairable - see GUIDE - Enabling AHCI mode AFTER Windows 7 Installation - Guru3D.com Forums

btw, what i ended up doing:

i just set the controller to raid as it functions the same as AHCI for the ssd and would allow me to add in my raid 1 mirror on the same controller.
