    yes ACHI is set to enabled in BIOS


    Does this sound correct for using the Marvell driver? Install the driver, and then use device manager to update the software for its use?


    /Edit Its almost interesting to look at picture uploaded earlier. It shows ie. C drive as Degrag "never ran", but then its says below "only drives that can be defragmented will be shown". I imagine once I do reinsatll the HD's that when I enable Defrag that it might not allow me to schedule, but Id rather manually choose to run it really (i know its "ntfs" but I still like usin error check first)...

    If you are gonna install any marvel drive this is the only thing that you need to install. http://www.fileden.com/files/2009/12...0.1019whql.zip

    I dont know what you mean by "then use device manager to update the software for it use"


    From start to scratch this is all you should have to do.

    Install SSD to white marvel sata3 connector.
    Install hdd,DVD to black sata2 connectors.
    Boot into bios and enable ACHI for both controllers.
    Boot off window windows cd format and install windows to the SSD.

    Once windows is installed install the following (order should not matter to much)

    1. Install chip set drivers.
    2. install lan drivers
    3. install usb3 drivers
    4. install video card drivers
    5. install IRST drivers
    6. Install Marvel drivers (Not needed)

    That should be it then you just need to configure windows so you are not writing to the SSD as much and wear it out.

    Well I did actually install "Marvell Magni driver installer" earlier.. Device manager had the drive listed as Disk drive. Basically I didnt really see anything showing that the driver was functioing in place of the MS driver (didnt have AS SSD software loaded) my appologies for confusion

    p.s. do you have a link w suggested configuration changes, or is it stickied somewhere??

    Everything you should need can be found here in this sticky

    http://forums.tweaktown.com/gigabyte...ity-tools.html

    In the past with the old marvell controller is was suggested not to use their driver and stick with the MS driver instead. Even now with the updated controller I see no benifits (performance wise)install the marvell driver over the MS driver.

    The only thing that changes visually is that the marvell controller will show up in the device manager.

    Ya, as mentioned above no need to use device manager to update anything. You either only install the Marvell Magni console (Smaller package), or you install the complete package which is the larger one that includes magni console, disk drivers, and Marvell tray web utility. Nothing is updated via device manager, at all.

    SSD's will be shown, just not defragmented (As in, you cannot schedule one to be defragmented), I think they just worded that funky is all!

    See, here is the same drives connected with scheduling enabled, but you can see I can't schedule a defrag for the SSD's, even selecting all disks does not select the SSD's they will always say "never run"





    So yes, your assumptions are correct, it's not going to allow it to run on the SSD. And you can leave schedule disabled if you want and manually run the defragger whenever you want on other drives. It will allow you to manually defrag a SSD, but that's manual and by choice only. I highly recommend other defrag programs anyway if you are going to use one, such as Perfect Disk. These will have proper SSD defrag abilities, which you can use once a month or so, whenever you want, this is basically free space allocation more than defragging, but it will defrag a little in the process of moving stuff around of course. But really, that's the only type of defragmentation you should do to SSD's, free space consolidation.

    That would leave the MSAHCI driver as the main driver, that is the only driver (Magni console, Smallest driver package) you want if you do not want to use the Marvell drivers.

    Since you have the better Marvell controller you can install the full package if you want, or the other disk drivers mentioned above. It's all up to you, you can test various ways if you want and see which works best for you.

    Well what do you know! I d/l SATA_allOS_1.2.0.1019_PV_Marvell via Intel's site (seen some sites w varying sizes for the file) anyway I clicked install, and it asked for a finish install/reboot, I clicked and then Windows wanted to reboot a 2nd time (changes made to System or something)..

    Device Manager lists both controllers now! Basically passing the eye test (I did doublecheck w/ AS SSD though)

    Im gonna give it a few days to (sorta break-in period) really tweak the Mobo a bit more, but it would be nice to get signature privileges if possible (maybe my fault for usin FB, dunno)

    p.s. thank you for all the help & info!

    Marvell via Intel's site? Haha, that just doesn't sound right

    Ohh, sorry about the signature thing, I meant to comment on that earlier! It's because you never clicked the link in the registration email, so the system is still waiting for you to do that. Since our email system is on the fritz right now, I'll make you a registered user right now, so when you read this post you'll be able to go make a signature and upload avatars, ect.

    Morning all!

    Its almost frustrating that I had another occurence of failure to start this morning. I had to boot into safe mode, and restart..

    I might try cleanboot, and a few other things to try to narrow down any issues. I seem to recall having better luck on startup by actually logging off, before shutting down in the past (intial install). Basically if this issue sounds familiar, Id love to hear any suggestions (thinkin one issue could be related to Win7 attempting to improve startup performance, while my AV is loading at startup for protection)<-- just a bad guess

    Check sig! I still need to get an avatar, but plan to soon enough!

    p.s. I uninstalled/updated the Renesas driver (shes pretty much up todate now!) and I also enabled quick boot in BIOS.

    Ohh, I forgot Intel boards probably all have additional Marvell controllers too!

    YOu should download the Marvell drivers you want from your boards web page, there is 3 and you only want two (Installing either / or).
    GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 1366 - G1.Guerrilla (rev. 1.0)

    Pre-install package is self explanatory

    Magni Console (0.96MB) is the smaller package, controller driver only (Nothing will show in device manager). Install this ONLY, if you plan to stick to the default Microsoft MSAHCI Drivers

    Complete package (41.80MB) (Includes Magni driver, storage controller driver, disk drivers, web utility)

    What AV are you using?
