    I just switched my primary drive to an SSD (Crucial CT500BX100) and upon re-installing Win7 x64, I cannot get the drivers for this PCI-E card to function - there were no issues with multiple HDDs and the card previously. I get an error code 10 (device cannot start), even though the drivers successfully install. I have tried running MS' FixIt program, and even re-installing Windows and trying to install the driver before doing ANY Windows updates, all to no avail :(

    The card uses the SIL3124 processor.

    I *really* hope someone can help out on this. I don't understand why this would occur - it was *always* properly detected by Windows as an Unknown Device, and I just had to point the device to the driver and all was fine. Now Windows doesn't even see it unless I select ADD LEGACY HARDWARE and then specify the driver.

    FWIW, i am not running it in RAID.

    Thanks!

    I think you're mis-understanding - the SSD is my primary drive, *not* connected to the Syba - the Syba just has HDDs connected to it. I meant I have previously had different primary HDDs and had no problems installing the Syba. This is the first SDD I have used.

    OK, so your motherboard get the latest bios?, which model you are using?

    Yes, it's an Asus Sabertooth Z77 with the latest BIOS. As I said, all was fine until I switched my primary drive to the SSD - I have no doubt at all, if I switched it back to the HDD I was using (which still has Win7 on it), it would work just fine.

    Hello?! How much clearer can I be on things????!

    EVERYTHING WORKED FINE UNTIL I SWITCHED FROM AN HDD TO AN SSD AS MY PRIMARY DRIVE! Windows did NOT detect it during installation as it previously had - SAME installation disc. The ONLY thing that changed was using an SSD and not an HDD!

    Well you did not say if it was or wasn't recognized in your bios so I did not know if you have RTFM

    Very strange, the Windows 7 installation on the HDD is Legacy like your SSD installation or in EFI mode ???
    Did you try to install Windows 7 first on SSD, and plug the Syba card after OS installation???

    You could check the partitionning of these two (diskmgmt.msc), if you just install Windows 7 on unformatted disks, Legacy get 2 partitions automatically set by Windows Setup and the EFI mode get 3 partitions(GPT format for the main).
