Hello,

Hi some weeks ago I bought 4770K+ VI formula and owned revodrive 80gb first edition, after few weeks testing on win7 i got revodrive 240gb ver3 x2.
So i putted both revo to the board and started installig 8.1 prev, but it do not takes drivers for old revo only first one. Windows 7 take both like a charm, and I' m actually
running machine with all updates.
I know some people run original revo on win 8.1, so what can be the metter with two on board ??

I turned off fast boot(sata thgs) and it do not makes any problems with booting, but I want windows 8.1 so...?anyone :cool:

Hi afomek

I believe I worked with you regarding this when you contacted OCZ. For clarification you were never asked to contact ASUS regarding this issue. I'll recap here what we already covered previously.

If the Revo 3 is currently working without issue the UEFI settings you are using will also be correct for the first generation 80GB Revo. That the 80GB Revo works without issue with Win7 indicates there are no problems with the drive itself. You are attempting to use Win8.1 and Linux with the two RevoDrives. There are no Linux drivers available for either drive as Linux is not a supported operating system. Win8/8.1 is supported and drivers are available for the Revo 3. The 80GB Revo is supported for Win7 only and that is what the drivers are designed for. As I have already explained to you, other users (including myself) have used the first generation Revo with Win8.1 without issue. This success is dependent on the individual system configuration though.

There are troubleshooting steps that can gone through in an attempt to get the 80GB Revo to properly work with Win8.1. However as the Revo 3 is working those steps would be redundant in this instance as any misconfiguration would prevent the Revo 3 from working also. The 80GBG Revo specifications clearly state Win7 as the only supported operating system. From a support position the only recommendation that can be made is stay with Win7 if using the 80GB Revo or use Win8.1 without the drive.

I will ask someone who knows about them I do not like them nor use them. He is based in the US so it will be a few hours before he is online.
