    Well, after further testing and installing I have to give this a "no go".

    I can get Windows 7 x64 installed now to the SSD without a problem (have done it 3 times now). But, after getting all the Drivers, SP1 and Updates applied (without issues). Then rolling into the "Heavier" installs. I get "port 0 disconnected" errors from Intel RST, system hangs and then the BSOD.

    I have been able to reproduce it everytime by trying to install Office 2010 to the SSD with Win 7 on it. Same source installs fine on the Windows 7 x64 install on my HDD. Which the only difference between the 2 is one OS is running on the SSD and trying to install to the SSD, other is on the HDD. Same Updates and Drivers running in both installs. No "special" tweaking between the 2 except what Windows 7 does on it's own when installed to the SSD.

    So, I at the very least got further with the 3.3.0 Firmware then when I got the drive with 3.2.0 last week. I could not even get Windows 7 installed onto the SSD when it was at 3.2.0.

    Doritos, I read about your problem on Newegg comments from people. You have to get rid of the Intel RST driver if you are going to run your OS from the SSD drive. Here is the post:

    I've tried uninstalling Intel RST before to remove the Intel SATA drivers and roll them back to use the Microsoft one. It had no change before.

    But, just to make sure I have just reinstalled Windows 7 onto the SSD clean, without installing Intel RST (only Intel install was the INF updater). So far the system has dumped on me twice while doing Windows Updates (this is my second time typing this reply due to the last dump/BSOD).

    So, I do not think the Intel RST software or Intel SATA Drivers are the cause (at least in my situation).

    But, thank you for point out the posts on NewEgg. I've been digging every place I can think of for drivers, tweaks or settings to try.

    Had just that one hiccup. Running overnight without a problem. Looking good

    Try turning off your swap file, with 16Gig memory, you don't really need it.

    Just had another freeze today. Turned off RAID in the Intel controller, maybe that will do the trick. We'll see.

    I limit the swap file to 4Gb. But, also tried it with it off. No change.

    Keep the ideas coming everyone, please. Willing to try (almost) anything....

    Is there an official Patriot Wildfire guide on how to set up the bios and the Windows? and Can you update the FW before you installed the OS?

    Was hoping 3.30 should fix this, but is it?
    I haven't had this happen to me since upgrading, but it's only been a few days and I've gone days without a bluescreen before upgrading so can't say for sure yet.
