I got a strange problem. Today i received my SSD and i wanted to instal W7 on it. First i could see the SSd in the bios but not in the windows screen where you can partition the disks.
No i got that problem solved. But the disk is onley 8Mb
My system specs
Asus Crosshair formula 2
AMD Phenom2 x940
if you need more info just ask and i will post it
That certainly is a strange problem. Have you tried to format it in Windows 7 as a basic disk? And did you initialize the disk? Is the SSD shown as being online?
Seems like the disk is not formatted correctly.
I have seen this problem reported with other disks, mainly SSDs. It appears to be a failure of the drive's controller. Get it replaced under warranty.
Apologies for the problems you are having with your X-25M.
If the problem continues, please RMA the drive for replacment.
FYI: "Intel BootLoader" and a drive size of 8MB typically means that the firmware cannot be found.
I have an Asus M2npv-vm motherboard running Windows XP Pro and I see exact same issues. The drive is an Kingston SSD 96 GB. I worked with Kingston and the RMA the first device. Without any explanation of what they did, they sent me a new drive. The new drive has the exact same problem I can only see 7.84 MB of the total 96 GB. Did you go with a different vendor than Kingston, such as the Kingston was not working and another vendor 's SSD worked?
Hi Matt, I have the same issue. Same motherboard as your Asus M2NPV-VM, with Kingston SSD 30G. The SSD works well in my notebook and install windows 7 without any problem. I wonder if the M2NPV-VM is too old to install an SSD.
