    S3MILOBON have u set your bios to AHCI mode before installation?
    i think u should also change the virtual memory settings, uncheck automatically menage size and select Custom size, set initial and max size both to 2048
    and click ok and restart...

    have u also try another marvell drivers like 1.2.0.1002?

    maybe i'm wrong but is worth to try.... u can always set back to default :)
    hope it helps... cheers!

    The Gigabyte UD3R uses a Marvell SE9128 SATAIII controller chip (just like the Asus board in my specs), and therein is the problem. The chip, while it does support SATAIII, isn't that great of a chip, especially with SATAIII SSDs. For one, Marvell no longer makes drivers for it. Secondly, it's not a native controller. The SE9128 runs on the PCIe channel, but the problem is it only uses a single PCIe lane, and not 2 like the SE9182. That means speeds are capped at 2.5Gb/s. Because of this you will never get full speed out of any SATAIII 6Gb/s drive.

    On the same token, the Marvell drivers do not support TRIM. If you are running Windows 7 SP1 I would advise you to uninstall them, and switch over to Microsofts drivers. The new Microsoft driver in SP1 supports TRIM, plus you might even see a little speed boost too (mileage varies).

    Until you upgrade your motherboard to one that has a native SATAIII controller, or at least a much better SATAIII controller, I would instead run the SSD on the Intel SATAII controller. This way you will have less headaches with the drive, plus you can use Intels latest Rapid Storage Driver which has proper TRIM support.

    BTW, the specs on the Marvel chip, or rather how it's implemented, might vary between manufacturers. Some may have tricks to get more performance out of it, but to my knowledge the main reason for the bad performance is due to it only using 1 PCIe channel (I know this is the case, for sure, on my friends X58, and should be the case with other implementations). I'm sure someone will correct me on this.

    BTW, don't forget that you MUST use SATAIII cable for that drive (you should have gotten 2 when you got that board). Don't use SATAII cable.

    The Yellow ! means there are no drivers installed.

    I have the very same message when i try to install the SATA 3 pci-e hub.Neither windows or windows update can find a driver for it.

    My current searchs via bing only comes up with apps that searches for all dier related problems... I never use those as i don't trust them... For Example.

    So if any one finds a direct link to the driver please post it here..

    Try uninstalling the "Marvell" listing, then do a scan for hardware changes, and when it asks for a driver just install Microsofts standard AHCI driver. Just don't install Marvells driver again. If it glitches, and won't let you install another driver, try going to Asus's website for the board in my specs as that driver is version 1.0.0.1042, newer than Gigabytes. Install that, reboot, then install or manually update them to Microsofts. You could also try "updating" the driver to the standard Microsoft driver too right off the bat to see if it works.

    Oh, almost forgot. Make sure the Marvell controller in the bios is set to AHCI. Don't use IDE or RAID for it.

    As I mentioned Marvell no longer makes drivers for that chip (as far as I can tell), plus as I said, TRIM doesn't work on the current driver, but it does on Microsofts driver as of Win7 SP1.
