    Windows 7 32 bit
    HP Pavilion dv6700 laptop from 2008

    Sorry for the obscure title, but it's a little hard to explain in a few words.

    Okay, so I installed Windows 7 on my new PT64GS25SSDR ~ Patriot Torqx TRB. It worked fine. I booted into Windows and everything. Then I go to restart, uh oh, operating system not found! Okay, load up the Windows disc, oh, it can't find Windows 7 on my computer! Eventually, with enough CTRL ALT DELing at the Operating System Not Found prompt, it boots into Windows just fine.

    So basically here's the issue: the drive isn't regconized when turning on the computer from a cold start, or restarting (and I can't use Sleep anymore either as it tries to load the hard drive, can't, then just BSOD's).

    The only way around this, is taking the drive out and putting it back in. Any time I do this, it boots just fine.

    Though like I said, sometimes... I can get it to boot after CTRL ALT DELing many many times at the Operating System Not Found prompt. Thankfully I don't restart or shutdown often, so this is a minor inconvenience, but still... I'd rather it didn't happen at all. I'm using the adapter that came with my computer which was attached to my traditional hard drive ( https://www.excelcomputerinc.com/la...9&intcatalogID=[adapter]&intcatalogref=111510 ). Any help to resolve this issue is most appreciated!

    I posted this on another forum 10 hours ago and still haven't gotten a reply. I'd reeeaaally like some help, thank you! ^.^

    Your link is broken.

    Did you install in AHCI mode or IDE.

    If you installed in AHCI make sure AHCI driver is installed

    Fixed it.
    I don't have modes. I'm on a laptop, the BIOS is very limited in options.
    I do have an AHCI SATA driver.

    Maybe your computer is having trouble initiating the harddrive for some reason.

    Have you tried asking this at the forums on Patriot's website?

    I couldn't get any help there. So I asked at techsupportforum.com and no one has replied there, so now I'm here. :3

    Unless yur Dad's computer is Identical to yours, Windows is going to BSOD as it is looking for the hardware in your computer.
