Perhaps you could help with the matter I already raised with SanDisk support and my motherboard vendor support, yet to no result.
I have a computer with an MSI B75A-G43 MoBo with AMI BIOS V10.7, the latest available. I have recently purchased the 128 GB SSD from SanDisk. It is not seen by the BIOS. The disk is OK, connected as a second drive to another computer with several years old Gigabyte MoBo it was seen both by BIOS and the OS (WinXP Home) and using Disk Management utility I was able to initilise it, partition and format.
When I connect it to my new computer with the MSI MoBo, despite activating SATA AHCI mode in BIOS, the disk is not seen. Electrical connections are OK - the system boots with a standard HDD connected to the same power supply connector and SATA ribbon to the first SATA port. But when I conect the SSD and boot the computer from Windows 7 Home 64 bit instlalation CD, Windows sees no disk to install itself on (I disconnected all secondary drives). When I tell Windows to look for necessary drivers on the chpset driver CD supplied with the motherboard, it reports no signed appropriate drivers were found.
Apparently this seems to be a BIOS compatibility problem, MSI has promised to work on it, but takes time. Perhaps someone has come across similar problem and knows a workaround? I was planning to set up my computer under Win7 over Easter, but seems there is no chance.
MSI support have sent me a link to their new release of AMI BIOS - V10.8 I upgraded and the SSD is still not seen by the BIOS on boot, despite seleting the AHCI SATA mode.
