    I installed a 160 GB G2 Intel SSD today. Everything works, but my read/write times suck ~ 14 for write.

    I figured a firmware update from HA to HD might help, but i created a bootable DVD, and when I insert it, all I get is a blinking cursor on the upper left hand corner for a long time.

    Would appreciate any help. I made sure it was AHCI, I turned on the writing cache thing, etc.

    i don't know what i'm doing wrong

    Thanks.

    I'm still getting only 12 MB/s and 14 MB/s read times even after doing everything.

    AHCI
    TRIM Optimizing through Toolbox
    Update Firmware
    Turn on Cache Write
    Disable Indexing and Superfetch


    Not sure what's wrong with it.

    I dont think you upgraded your firmware at all. That blinking '_' on the top left screen means you havent even got into the update utility and it is not loading anything. It sounds to me like something is making you not burn the firmware update cd properly. This is similar to the older TPs with the problem wtih the roxio burner.
