Hi

Problem I am having is trying to Install Corsair Force GT 240gb to my laptop. However, the SSD shows up on bios under SATA configuration correctly but when I want to select it for boot priority there is no option given except the DVD drive. SSD firmware has been updated and bios is upto date already. I have read the folowing http://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?17052-G75VW-BB5K-can-t-select-SSD-as-boot-device

Few things: - drive is brand new
- when 1TB drive does boot ok
- drive is read correctly in windows

Have tried everything including AHCI activation in bios and windows but no luck....pls help

just to make things clear: you have installed an OS in your corsair ssd, but even though bios detected it, you couldn't select it in boot priority?
