    That's why I said if anyone has a place to upload the files I will upload them for someone who needs them So they can get everything they need. I was lucky enough with the problem I had(Windows app problems) that I had time to backup the folder. Helps to have a thumb for those moments you ran into.

    And here is how to enable it:

    1. Run Command Prompt as Admin
    2. Invoke a Safe Mode boot with the command: bcdedit /set {current} safeboot minimal
    3. Restart the PC and enter your BIOS during bootup.
    4. Change from IDE to AHCI mode then Save & Exit.
    5. Windows 10 will launch in Safe Mode.
    6. Right click the Window icon and select to run the Command Prompt in Admin mode from among the various options.
    7. Cancel Safe Mode booting with the command: bcdedit /deletevalue {current} safeboot
    8. Restart your PC once more and this time it will boot up normally but with AHCI mode activated.

    Now had to test wich startup mode is the faster and most stable...do you think that re-enable AHCI will change something?

    Are you sure this is for the G752vt? Mine sure does not have an IDE option. Already updated to bios 213. Boot time increased by 4 secs. I dont have m.2 only a samsung 850 evo 250gb 2.5inch sata ssd. If i select ahci, laptop wont boot.

    HI, i've received a brand new G752VT-T7005T a couple of days ago. During this two days i've found some little issues (dvd writer starts load randomly even if empty, usb ports sometimes refresh during copy and doing a new folder wherever i want shows up only after pressing F5) that convince me to do a fresh install (like every "G" received in the last 6 years);

    Assuming that i'm running Windows on a Samsung m.2 SSD 128gb installed onto IRST controller LOCKED into RAID mode, thats what i've found:

    • Doing a fresh bootable media of Windows 10 update 1155 (UEFI mode) using a USB 3.0 drive (fully working) don't show up in boot selection, using a 2.0 it works.

    • To recognize the m.2 drive, you have to load onto your usb drive IRST drivers, used in the section of disks research; IRST provided from ASUS website crash (blue screen IRQL), but with THIS the setup will recognize SSD and will work fine.

    My questions:
    • there's a way to modify m.2 mode that's actually locked (grey selection) in RAID mode (i have to load RAID driver to install, no way to set in AHCI)?

    • if i buy a new Samsung to make a RAID 0, how i can enter into a RAID section to configure it?

    • searching on the net, all SSD same of mine that are on sell are named "AHCI", there's something wrong if i buy it to make my RAID?

    Thanks for replies.

    ACTUALLY WITH 205 BIOS THERE'S NO WAY TO SET IN RAID MODE 2 SSD EVEN IF MACHINE IS ONLY IN RAID BOOT MODE (UNIQUE SELECTION POSSIBLE IN BIOS SETUP). RAID PROTOCOL IS ENABLED ONLY FOR THE IRST COMMUNICATION PORT (SSD IS NATIVE RAID/AHCI SO IS NOT A SATA DRIVE).

    EDIT: MINI GUIDE FOR A FULL WORKING MACHINE WITH CLEAN INSTALL
    Here's a mini guide step by step to have a fully working G752 with a clean install:
    1. Download from Microsoft website using this tool last ISO of Windows 10 Home x64
    2. Burn onto a USB 2.0 (3.0 actually doesn't be recognized from 205 BIOS) drive using rufus (select first the downloaded ISO an then select GPT partitioning)
    3. Download from here lastest Intel RAID driver and simply insert unzipped folder onto USB drive
    4. OPTIONAL: remove secondary HDD to avoid issue/unwanted loss of data, you can reload it when you will reach desktop for the first time, after first user shutdown
    5. Turn on PC pressing ESC until you see boot list, select your USB drive and go on
    6. Windows setup will automatically find your Windows 10 serial from UEFI bios so you will not be prompted for wich Windows version you want to install
    7. Arrived in disk selection setup you will see no disk attached. Select "load driver" and use the driver downloaded from previous step, wait for a while and you will se Samsung m.2 drive
    8. delete all partitions, hit next and setup will automatically recereate UEFI structure (because SSD already is GPT formatted)
    9. Proceed for the rest of installation like normal one (inserting account, wifi, etc.)

    Once reached Desktop for first time, my hint is to turn notebook onto airplane mode (FN+F2 doesn't work anymore, you have to install first the app) using the button placed in wifi panel.
    Proceed (if you haven't do this step before format) with the download and installation of all package (better if downloaded from a parallel PC so you don't enable Windows to download updates while downloading drivers) from ASUS website except for this three one:
    • Nvidia GPU drivers here
    • ASUS Spendid Utility here
    • Realtek audio driver: use ASUS driver
    • ASUS Sonic Suite 2 here

    So if you do anything correct you will have to download this list from ASUS support page:
    Attachment 54092
    Reboot when prompted and at the end re-enable wifi.

    SSD OPTIMIZATION:
    Heres a couple of trick to optimize SSD life and speed:
    • launch CMD with admin privileges and type "powercfg /h off"
    • under System --> Advanced turn off Paging file by selecting it and disabling automatic mode (reboot)
    • search for "defrag" select manage and disable it
    • in Device manager select SSD properties and thick the selection "disable Buffer unload" (we have battery that can supply power shortage)


    LAST HINT:
    If you have the "Num Lock" Windows 10 issue (no Num Lock at startup) see here:
    • Launch Regedit
    • Navigate to: HKEY_USERS --> .DEFAULT -->Control Panel --> Keyboard
    • Find "InitialKeyboardIndicators" key
    • Add "+2" at the value (if you have 2147483648 type 2147483650)
    • Reboot


    SSD PERFORMANCE:
    For people that found pathetic write speed recognized with SSD's program benchmark, it's not a driver issue or incompatibilty, if you search for the spec of MZVLV128 Samsung m.2 drive you will find that this drive can read up to 1500 MB/s and write only 150 MB/s . So the only problem found is that ASUS decided to install "crappy" entry level SSD.
