Nothing but the drive 12/26/2013
None so far. I list my tech knowledge as somewhat low because I have no experience with PCI-e based drives but have somewhat high knowledge on most other things dealing with hardware.
This was basically a box inside a box with the drive, a sticker and a bunch of advertisement papers. There were no instructions, no driver disc, nothing. I tried doing a cold bot with just this drive and my system recognized it as a RAID controller but I was unable to boot Windows that way so I hooked my previous spin drive back up and tried to just install the drive in a pre-exiting boot as a secondary drive and Windows failed to install the drive. I went to the OCZ site to try to get an installation program or drivers and so far my search has come up empty as they seem to only have listing for newer versions of the RevoDrives. Starting to feel like this may have been a waste of time and potentially money.
I wasn't sure if my older motherboard was PCI-e bootable. I believe it is by the fact the drive showed up in BIOS as a RAID and was on the boot list. I have better than average tech knowledge on most things but this was new ground for me. I'm going to try to see if I can get help from tech support and if not I am hoping Newegg may allow me to exchange this on another drive that is SATA II/III based.
