    First of all thanks for your help. I have dowlnload Parted Magic and I have made an ISO CD. With this CD I will make a Secure Earse of the SSD and clean my C:disk. Once it,s done, I will reboot in the Bios and change to ACHI and again reboot but this time with de W7 DVD. I hope that works. Need work. The problem as you say is switch from IDE to AHCI with no formatting., but if you formatt all must be run ok ( I hope).

    I wouldn't suggest using secure erase on an SSD. SSDs are not designed to be written to with such intensity, you will potentially shorten the life span of your SSD. Check with Patriot first what their recommendation is.
    I would suggest just using the Windows installation to delete your partitions. You should see Windows create a 100MB system partition during the install.

    Thanks for the advice... as you see this Guide is from the OCZ forums. I will check in Patriot web side. , And BTW, have you finally switch to ACHI reformatting or not?, and if u consider the long time and efforts of reformatting and loading all your sofwtare again that AHCI mode pay for all that heavy job ???

    For me, the main advantage to AHCI is the hot swap drive feature.
    A web search using: ahci vs ide performance
    will show that there are some benefits with each mode for consumer use. Servers with heavy use ahci mode.
    Using secure erase before you reinstall the operating system resets your ssd to factory performance levels.
    I don't have a problem with using secure erase, as long as it isn't used frequently.

    I don't have a separate Recovery partition on my ssd because I formatted the drive to use all available space before I installed the operating system. My ssd has an inaccessible Recovery folder on the ssd. This setup requires a single partition backup image instead of having to backup two partition images each time. Both of my ssd boot drives have been trouble free, even though my backup system doesn't have AHCI because the N650SLI-DS4 has an Nvidia chipset.

    I'm seriously considering the MSI Z68A-GD65 G3 when Ivy Bridge is available.
    HARDOCP - MSI Z68A-GD65 G3 LGA 1155 Motherboard Review
    Another somewhat more expensive option might be an LGA2011 motherboard with the least expensive Sandy Bridge-E cpu (that will probably offer very limited overclocking).

    Im very sure I d,ont gonna spend 600 $ or more for any CPU... About MSI I know ( at least in my country, Spain) a simple RMA takes 2 month or so, when Asus , GA, Asrock etc etc use to take only a few days. I like very much the new Asrock ( 1155) Z68 Extreme7 Gen3 , or a GA ??? ( still thinking) = i7 2600 K or 2700 K., but fellow 600/1000 $ us is too much ... A well OCed 17 2700k for 24/7 do the job well and by far cheaper.

    I doubt that I'd buy a motherboard if I knew that an RMA would take two months, even if it was the "best" one available.
    A Sandy Bridge-E setup with the lowest price cpu probably has some advantages, but the system will probably cost at least $200 (USD) more than a Z68 system with one of the K-processors. I'll probably wait to see if the somewhat better Ivy Bridge performance and features are worth waiting until about March 2012. I will definitely wait to buy a "real" Gen3 motherboard, but I don't know for sure if PCI-e 3.0 will really deliver better graphics performance when the newer 3.0 video cards are available.
    Good luck with your new system.
