I have purchased a brand new SSD recently, but was frustrated, because were way above the averages for the same model from all reviews. I was looking for problem until i have noticed a message in AS SSD benchmark saying pciide – BAD. I was curious what’s that. Looking over in the Google i found the answer!
Apply this fix, prior to updating BIOS on Windows 7, otherwise your system won’t boot! http://support.microsoft.com/kb/922976.
Solution: Go to BIOS and change to AHCI mode for SATA controller.
In BIOS choose: Integrated Peripherals → Onchip SATA Type → Choose [AHCI]
Enjoy much better performance with your SSD! Use it to the max!
