Force GT Problem - Drive vanished until power cycle

Recommended Posts

I purchased two Corsair Force GT 120GB drives. I boot off of one and have not done anything with the second drive other than hooked it up to the SATA controller.

 

Things I did before I installed the OS:

 

  • Disabled the JMicron on board controller. Windows 7 installation did not like having the Blu-ray drive on it for some reason so I moved it to ICH10R and disabled the JMicron controller.
     
  • Flashed the SSDs to 1.3.2 firmware and verified the flash worked
     
  • Erased the drives
     
  • Installed Windows 7
     
  • Installed Intel RST for my RAID 1 physical drives

 

After about 100 hours of use over a couple weeks I had a pretty disturbing issue come up. Explorer seemed to freeze then about after 3 minutes Explorer crashed. I restarted the computer by tapping the power button causing the OS to attempt a shutdown.

The computer rebooted and the drive was missing according to the ICH10R ROM! The second Force GT was still there however.

 

I completly power cycled the system and the drive came back and the OS is working. There are no errors in the logs so I guess the drive just went away.

 

Any suggestions?

Have you got catalyst control centre installed?

 

If so remove it & just install the driver, none of the other stuff. See how that goes.

 

When installed with raid it corrupts windows somehow.

 

I was having the same issue of windows not responding. I've just got back to a clean install so hopefully I wont see the problem again.

AMD RAID drivers should not install on Intel motherboards.
