I'm having trouble with this as I am trying to change the boot hard drive to my Samsung SM951 http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00VELD92U?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00
I know there has been some talk of this happening with other users and I was wondering if there has been any changes with this?
I can use it as a hard drive but not see it as a boot drive in the BIOS. I haven't attempted to re-install yet as I'm thinking it won't let me due to the BIOS not recognizing it.
I can't really help you, Asus hasn't explained why the G752 are coming with Raid the only option to be used. NVMe is explained here
wawawawawa wait a minute.....
raid ? WTF ?
why the frak ( yes BSG fan ) you use RAID on a single ssd based machine ? it makes no sense !
Please enter the bios and change the drives control to AHCI instead of RAID !
Also... look at this REVIEW from NoteBookCheck.net
A. please read my update in my previous post.
B. please see this old G55VW manual...from page 98-102... specially the "delete raid" part.
I think you can control your raid in the same way... using the special Intel RAID config screen ( Ctrl+I suppose to be for Intel Raid control... if not try Ctrl+M -> that for maverick Raid control)
Now... although I had the G55VW - I NEVER used RAID so I can't guide you there....
My opinion - that should let you disable the raid completely, then you'll be able to change to AHCI in the bios after another reboot.
P.S - Fastboot is a good thing to enable AFTER you got your OS installed and there is no need to use the POST so much anymore ( this option enabled making POST faster )
P.S.S - You can stay with RAID - but during windows installation you need to mount Intel (most probebly ) RAID drivers so the OS can communicate with the ssd !
M8... read page 98 :
1. Turn on the system
2. During POST press
POST is the state after you turn on the PC and BEFORE OS launches.... it is NOT the bios's screen... but an I/O of the bios operations.
a. disable fast boot - cause the G751/2 laptop's POST is really fast
b. try couple of times to enter that special RAID screen during post, by pressing ctrl+I
EDIT: try also the ctrl+I combo with external keyboard... although that does not make sense to me... as USB are POSTing later then any internal component.... may be this will work....
otherwise - i'll tell you to update the BIOS, as it solve other's laptops ctrl+I problem ( other's != asus laptop, but intel RAID controller based )
The only update there for the VT is about cardreader fix and some EC firmware...
The issue is that the bios updater app is windows based.... and flashing this outside of windows in dos-based environment... is a big deal ( you'll need h-i-r-e-n boot disk or other equivalent with dos on a USB ) cuz the tools to flash these bioses from DOS are NOT asus official tools ( you can get them from some specific bios-mod forums )
