My current system:
Windows 7
MB: Asus P5Q
SSD: Mushkin Enhanced Callisto Deluxe 40GB
Power: 650W


Hello everyone! I recently purchased the Mushkin SSD, formatted my computer and connected it to my system. After multiple attempts I was able to get the BIOS to recognize the drive and I installed Windows and my bootable system onto the SSD. However now whenever I shut down the computer for the night, in the morning on boot it is unable to find the bootable drive (the SSD).

I updated all the ASUS P5Q firmware and it still is unable to recognize the SSD on boot.

However, I am able to without fail so far open up the case and disconnect, then reconnect the SSD from the MB and it will be recognized on the next boot (and then work fine until I turn it off again.)


Am I making some silly mistake? Thank you for all your help!

Edit: I also updated the SSD firmware

Did you try a new sata cable ? Almost sounds like the SSD is not compatible with your MOBO

I tried two different SATA cables. Both of them worked intermittently. Again only detecting (and booting) after I disconnected and reconnected from the MOBO. These cables worked fine with the conventional HDD....

Hi,

Would you be able to provide some more info about your system? I'd like to know about make/model of the PSU, other drives connected, which SATA ports you have them on, and if you're in IDE/AHCI/RAID mode.

Thank you.

Regards,

Tweak

2. Western Digital Caviar Black WD1001FALS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

3. The SSD is connected to SATA 1

4. The WD HDD is connected to SATA 2


The drives are set to IDE, however I have attempted AHCI with the same results so I switched back.

Also I get the same results with the WD HDD connected or disconnected.



Thanks everyone for all your time!!

Thanks.

This implies no errors on your end. A bit far fetched, but have you checked the BIOS battery? Do you lose settings in BIOS if you yank out the power for few seconds?

I think I would initiate an RMA process with Mushkin at this point. I will come back to you if there is something else for you to try.
