I wonder if any kind person out there can give Me some advice?
I have recently installed a Extreme II on an Packard Bell easynote SW51-012 (mit drag)AMD Turion 64x2 as the boot drive which now boots and runs ok .
Please pour Yourself a coffee now!
1 Dashboard does not find drive therefore no info or control of usefull functions (trim etc)
Interestingly neither does crystaldisk !
2 Removing and placing the drive in a USB docking station makes the drive visible to D/B.
3 No option apparent in bios for AHCI mode just PIO Multi DMA etc
just shows drive as sata .
So i guess the questions are can I get Dash to see drive, am I losing much performance by not having AHCI option, and which is the best option in My available bios?
There not too bad was it ? feel better just by talking to someone!
Anyhoo roll up roll up test Your brain muscle here mine is spent !
All the best in anticipation JeffH.
