Hi, I am loading windows 8 on a new build. The motherboard is asus p8z77v-premium with the MSATA built in. Processor and the memory, graphics card, and sound card all posted correctly. Entered bios correctly.
I am running a 512GB Crucial M4 SSD loading windows 8. The SSD is not recognized on the boot order screen, however when going into the advanced menu it shows up. I successfully loaded up windows 8. After about 2 hours of inactivity, the computer would crash and no longer wake to mouse or keyboard. I updated the firmware on the M4 and this problem seems to be solved.
However, when I go into disk management, windows 8 seems to have put some information like system on the MSATA. I am not sure why?
Should I try loading windows again, or just remove the MSATA for now and reload windows on the SSD again.
