I'd tried every other setting, various BIOS versions, all the Nvida Optimus stuff, and no luck, it would still hang on restart. What really amazes me is that when it fails to boot there is no fall-back.

Thank you for your help/time! Create a Window 8 USB installation disc 2. The SSD is set to AHCI mode. But until I tried flat installing, I could both read and write on the SSD.edit: I looked up the term bricked.

BSOD for ever … ! I've tried multiples. I can't see the SSD in BIOS anymore, with or without the HDD connected. During bootup I do see OCZ listed so it is picking The factory install had the extra driver.13 Jul 2012 bought a new Lenovo W520 laptop.

also with new builds make sure your using the intel sata ports first not the third party chipset. navigate here Even gigantti has VERY lenient return policies and will certainly NOT do a full drive scan and charge you for this before returning...

After waiting endlessly for the Vertex 3, I was finally able to get a hold of it! http://gbcmedina.com/unable-to/driver-unable-to-install.php Bad news! Naota |Tuesday, 10 May 2011 at 9:57 PM That's for the optimization section I'll be writing later. =P gurkin |Friday, 13 May 2011 at 6:51 PM noob question: is this necessary Any opinions?

If it fails i'll try from the usb stick. I highly recommend this because it solved virtually all the issues my drive had, and even increased the performance. kunkku |Wednesday, 14 December 2011 at 3:31 PM I just upgrade firmware two days ago for my OCZ Vertex 3 MI 120GB from 2.08 to 2.15(?).

If it were any advice then just go back to Windows 7 and hope the Win8 upgrade goes smoothly at the end of October and if it doesn't then at least I have used this fix and had success along with many others.

I have a Z68X-UD7 motherbaord by Gigabyte and I had to edit the Regedit on iastor and msahci to enable AHCI in the AwardBIOS.

if the store gives you an issue and you used a credit card you can do what called a charge back. Either the systems hangs after the intial Windows 7 64 bit install, or the system bluescreened, or weired symptons such as "Can't find the Windows installer" if I wanted to go It has great data loss its ridiculous ! And I do have the SSD connected to the #1 SATA slot of the brown 6Gb/s AMD sockets on the MB, not the additional JMicron sockets.

During the installation right after Custom Clean installation selection screen,there's an option utility in the lower right corner to format and delete partitions.

Don't forget to mark your posts as answered so they drop off the unanswered post filter. Then, download the lenovo toolbox and install everything else. I updated BIOS and mb drivers, but only as soon as I had installed windows on the HDD. Performance has increased significantly, but still experience lockups that cause BSoD.

Supermuncher85Oct 5, 2012, 4:04 AM Yeah I've had a few issues with my OCZ but nothing a firmware flash/secure erase hasn't fixed so far. I have the latest Vertex3 2.15 installed. Without it no problem. And if so how?

OEM'sdon't have tosupport W8 until the late Oct, it offers them no real benefit to rushpatches for the few technet subscribers affected. Edit your Registry File to Fix the Vertex 3 from Freezing and Locking up, and Increase Performance This step is a little tricky, but here we go. do you?
