View Full Version : Intel SSD not working right due to BIOS?

I have a 530 series SSD in my G73jh which has a problem. The drive is not detected on restarts, but is always found on power ups. Intel has been checking this problem out, since a lot of people have been complaining about this problem with their new SSD series here (https://communities.intel.com/thread/44258)

So Intel is saying that system BIOS does not recognize a newer ATA command:

We have successfully recreated the issue. The cause appears to be that some BIOS implementations do not support a newer ATA feature called “Device Initiated Power Management (DIPM) for Software Setting Preservation (SSP)”. Intel® has recently added this feature to the firmware for newer SSD models.

I have the latest BIOS #213. Doesn't that BIOS have the ATA feature included? I don't find a setting in the BIOS screens. Do newer laptops have that ATA feature?

G73JH have support ATA and SATA, but as intel say G73JH have not support, but new models have supported.

Thanks Pitcher! :cool: Intel is working on a SSD BIOS update that will turn off that ATA feature when not compatible.
