    Well, I never had Windows 7 installed on it nor was the XP941 ever installed as a secondary drive. It was brand new from RAM City. Perhaps in my many failed tries it changed it to a MBR.

    I don't know why both me and Peter encountered this error but I can tell you that when I went to install it Windows, I had a devil of a time getting it to work. As to deleting the partition and making a new one, I have to go into a command prompt off of the Windows ISO image on a USB drive and CLEAN the partition first and then reapply it as a GPT. (I have these steps if anyone needs them) That is then only thing that worked for me. Not all of us know how to do every action off the top of our heads. Some of us are not full time computer experts and may need things explained to us step by step.

    So I reiterate, that if anyone encounters a similar error, I will be happy to help out. Just post here or better yet, send me a PM.

    Isn't that what this is all about? Helping each other out?

    Hello

    Exactly. I'll leave these posts here for a bit then move them to a new thread where any user that wishes to can converse with you regarding these type of user errors. This is really beyond the scope of this thread.

    If you're referring to the 512GB Crucial M550 M.2 Type 2280 Internal SSD, it will not work on the Rampage V Extreme because it's a M.2 SATA SSD and the Rampage V Extreme only supports M.2 PCIe SSDs.

    Thanks for the info..

    My question when looking for M.2 drive, how do you know its PCIe or SATA based? Is it something that is written out in the Specs etc?

    Thanks.

    Yes, that's correct.

    Take the drive you were looking at for example. If you look at the specifications table, it clearly states that the interface is SATA 6.0Gb/s.

    Thanks so much

    The M6e is better than Sansung XP941, I think

    Trim is Ok with the Plextor?
    In AHCI and it is a separate controller I guess (not at all related to the Intel controller and Rapid Storage Technology)

    Sorry for the questions, I do not know anything about the "M2"

    I hesitate to buy it and put into replace my Samsung Pro 850 (any difference I think)
