    What is the date and version of that Microsoft driver? I ask because maybe Windows 7 retail will have something newer from Intel.

    The date of the M$ driver is 21/06/2006, version 6.1.7100.0. That tells me that as it has the build number if the RC in the driver version, there will indeed be another driver issued with the RTM.

    Yes, that is the same one in Vista. Windows 7 RTM should have an updated driver, but how it compares to newest from Intel will be interesting.

    So, seems like no need to install chipset drivers with Windows 7.

    Indeed, that seems to be the case.

    I'll repeat the results here when I get my copy of the RTM. I'll also post the date and version number of the RTM driver.

    I tried to load the iaAHCI.inf driver during Windows 7 x64 install but it would not work, got an installation error. How are you able to install AHCI driver after install? Using Intel Storage Manager?

    Yes. You can either install Intel Matrix Storage manager, or download the Matrix Manager package and install the AHCI driver manually via extracting the package to a folder.

    Also, after having keyboard issues with AHCI enabled, (no access to f12 boot menu or BIOS) I installed Win 7 in IDE mode, then changed to AHCI after install was done. Win 7 still crashed the first time I switched, so I had to go into Device Manager and do an Update Driver on both the group of 4 and group of 2 SATA controllers. Replacing the driver with the Standard AHCI driver worked fine. I then installed Matrix Storage manager.

    If you want to avoid Matrix Storage manager (it runs a couple of processes every startup and hides individual ports in Device Manager) extract the files manually using the following switches: <executable name> -A -P C:\<path> .

    Small update: Intel have released a TRIM capable firmware for G2 34nm drives. This firmware also increases the sequential write performance of 160GB drives from ~70BMB/s to 100MB/s, taking advantage of more physical NAND IC's compared to the 80GB drives, who remain capped at ~70MB/s.

    Download is located here: *Intel® SATA SSD Firmware Update Tool

    I already did that and also installed the SSD Toolbox. TRIM will not work with drivers other than Microsoft, so I am using what came in Windows 7.

    I have to say while Windows 7 is faster than Vista on bootup, I still find booting up a bit slow--from pushing the power button to desktop. The Control Panel in Windows 7 is a disaster, Vista was better designed in that area.

    How would TRIM work with it if it's not a Microsoft driver? Only the Microsoft driver that came in Windows 7 will pass the TRIM command. It is expected Intel will come with new firmware in 3-4 months or so that will allow Intel Storage manager driver to pass the TRIM command. Considering the problem with Intel's TRIM firmware, which was taken down, that 3-4 months will likely be longer since they have to find what's wrong with current firmware update.
