CoreStore MV 64GB / Acer Revo Aspire 3610 / Windows 7 driver

Postby adil » Thu Apr 12, 2012 1:51 am

Hello,

I bought a CoreStore MV 64GB SR64C8MME and installed that SSD into my Acer Revo Aspire 3610.

Windows 7 32bit recognized the SSD after installing the drivers "CoreStore_Driver_1.0".

I init and format the SSD, so it is useable as data drive yet.


It's possible to have access to the SSD BIOS during booting as well. I also can select the SSD as primary boot device.


Now I'm ready for the next step to install Windows 7 on the SSD. Windows 7 booting from DVD up to the point of the hard disk selection. I used "load drivers" to install the SSD drivers. Before I copied the drivers "CoreStore_Driver_1.0" unpacked to one USB stick. I found the USB stick and the drivers. So I pressed ok.

But here occured the message of Windows 7 that the drivers are not signed and Windows 7 stopped the installation.

Which type of drivers do I need?

So far I know that the SDD is working with my computer.

If the Acer is working well wit my SSD I will try to use that SSD into my Dell D430 and D630.



Thanks a lot.

Mario

As far as I know, any of notebook does not support PCIe booting support.
But it is worth while trying this.

Please download the 2nd file and extract it and you will find the windows folder for driver.

I read into internet that someone boot from that SSD with a Acer Revo Aspire 3610 (it's a desktop computer with Intel Atom 330 and ION2).

First question. The SSD BIOS give me the following information:
firmware: 2.1.1.2037
build: Mar 21 2011
BIOS: 2.0.0.18

Do I need to update the firmware of the SSD?


Today I tried to install Windows 7 64bit and 32bit on the SSD. But there was no way. If I want to install the SSD drivers, Windows display the message that the driver is not signed.

Do I need a special driver from Marvell?

Hi,

i confirm that it is possible to use the CoreStore MV SSD into Acer Revo Aspire 3610.

I used the Intel driver which SSD-James recommended. But during the Windows 7 installation was it not possible to find the drivers for the SSD.

So I tried the AMD driver and what should I say, it works!

Today I want to install my Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit.


I also tried the SSD into my Dell D430 (A09 BIOS) and Dell D630 (A17 BIOS). But there is just the blinking cursor in the upper left corner on the Display. It's also not possible to go into BIOS with both Laptops.

Is there a solution to use a SSD into Dell D430?

Oh my god.
i386 means 32bit OS driver.
amd64 means 64bit OS driver.
That is the standard notation for the driver...
Anyway, very sorry about the confusion.
We actually consider that all of CoreStore users are semi-professionals for whole computer industry and especially drivers...
Thanks,
James

Sorry, it looks like I'm not semi-prof user.
However, I learned it yet.

So far I understood, you mean the CoreStore hardware is just for semi-prof users but there was no warning message on the box and in customer shop :mrgreen:

hahahaha.
Formfactor wise, it is not the standard like SATA, IDE.
It means that not many people want this formfactor unless ODM, designer, project functioner,...

So, what is the result by now?

Oh really, I know a lot of people who want to use mPCIe SSD's in their machines. But the laptops don't support it.

In my case, the Acer Revo Aspire 3610 is running perfectly with that SSD.

Do you need more information?

OK, that is good to hear that.
Please use my e-mail address james.lee@supertalent.com
Please take a picture of your PC and processes you took for installing the OS on your PC with CoreStore.
Step by step.

Ok, I'll send you an email today with a small powerpoint.

Unfortunately I do not have any picture of windows installaing but it is the same like on a HDD, if you know which driver you have to use. And it is important to go directly into the driver folder during the windows installation. Windows do not recognice subfolders!
