for those of you that owns a G55 with msata ssd, would you please check your bios and give me the version of bios / drivers you guys have? I would really appreciate it if someone can give me some information on how the msata is working.

ps: I know the G46 takes half sized msata ssd but you can still fit a full sized with a tweak here and there, I havn't done it yet but once I figure out the drivers and the issue other people's are having with their msata I will give this a go! 😛 anyways thank you in advance.

we don't need any additional driver to use mSATA SSD.

so the msata is just plug n play? do you know where I can find compatible ones for G46

In any website or shop where they sell mSATA SSDs...
They are not brand and model specific! Its like a USB drive that can plug into any computer that has USB, no matter if it will be Lenovo, ASUS, Dell or any other for that matter.

well I found some msata ssd and there's this compatibility list I saw on their websites, they listed normal SSD drives for Asus G46 but the msata drives are not compatible. I just pluged in my Patriot Pyro ssd and it worked like a charm but I want to use the msata and the HDD it came with.
