Hi to everyone, and thanks to everyone to help me figure this out. I finish install windows 8 Pro in this form factor SSD and it works like a charm, but in device manager there is this exclamation sign and I google it and tells me some about my video driver which I know my video drivers are fine from one way and the other I know it can’t be video driver cause it says 8086= intel, so my video cards are Nvidia. So my quess it could be the driver of the Samsung M.2 card cause I have the card mount on the PCI-e extension card that came with my motherboard. So anybody could have any idea what this could be, thanks in advance guys!
I have another question on the SSD drive describe above. What tool should I use in the future to " Secure Erase" this kind of SSD, now that I read not to use Part magic to secure erase, cause can damage the SSD and the Samsung Tool box wont recognize the SSD. TIA guys.
I haven’t yet found such tool myself. As soon as I found it, I will post it here. Since the Samsung XP941 M.2 SSD fully supports TRIM, it is not very important to clean the garbage containing SSD cells by doing a secure erasure of the complete SSD. By the way: According to my knowledge the name of the SSD is XP941 and not SP941.
Although I have some experience with the Samsung XP941 as boot drive (it boots fine with my ASRock Z97 Extreme6), I cannot answer this question. Furthermore I doubt, that your X79 mainboard has an M.2 port. If not, you will not get the Samsung XP941 running at all.
It may work, but I am not sure, that you will be satisfied with the result (even if it should work). My Intel SATA3 connected 512 GB Samsung 840 Pro SSD runs better (snappier and more stable) during my daily work than the Samsung XP941 M.2 SSD.
That is an interesting link - thanks for having posted it.
I also tried to catch up with this new wave, at least in theory. Among other, these links have been useful: ROG and RAMCITY.
XP941 is not bootable, so you need the BIOS to support PCIe boot. You can wait long and hard for manufacturers, or you can do it on your own like juantrix posted. I think it should be fairly harmless, only a flash failure could be a problem.
Hello Fernando, have you check or notice the percentage of degradation of your Samsung XP941-M.2 Pci-e SSD, and if you have, I ask it’s also like mine and some other owner in other forum posted that checked the M.2 with Cristal disk info and shows 91 and 92% in the live left of the driver, it is normal this readings I just bought this card from a second hand person at fley and he had it posted as new, but I have seen other that bought it from some other source popular site and also as well they have the same percentage of degradation on the drive, are you aware of this or now any reason of this.
