I already returned the drive, but I recently installed an ACHI card into my computer and was thinking of trying it out again. However I am wondering if the following issues are because of the drive or just being outright incompatible with my PC. It’s an nForce 780i, so it runs IDE mode with a legacy BIOS.
- When installing the latest Dashboard, I am told it is not supported under Windows 8 and thus will be limited. I am using 8.1.
- No matter what version of the Dashboard I tried, the drive is not detected.
- Ubuntu fails to boot off a liveCD citing an ATA failure.
- POST takes a lot longer than it should. Once every 3 or so boots the computer takes 20 seconds to post. The BIOS and Windows sees the drive just fine except for the previous issues.
I added ACHI with a ASM1061 card but was wondering if I were to buy a new SSD if I’d still get the same issues.
