    I removed the iSSD as explained above, change the HDD for a 500Go SDD and added 8Go of Ram. Looks like I have a brand you laptop!
    Thanks!

    It's amazing the price you can get a solid 500GB drive for these days. The capacity and speed is awesome too :) A lot better than the early days! (My first SSD was 40GB ^-^.

    Hi All

    I have an Asus UX32A and I am having the slow boot times etc... and I think the iSSD is the issue. I've read that some people were able to get this resolved by disabling the iSSD drive in the BIOS but for some reason I don't have the option to disable it. I am using BIOS version 216. To add my issue as it turns out the 2.5 HDD was bad as well so i need to replace the HDD as well. So I went and bought a 7mm SSD drive and installed it but the slow boot time is still there. I haven't removed the iSSD chip yet. I've read the comments above and I wanted to know how to you desolder power jumper PJP8901? The picture above shows the jumper but I don't know what he means by desolder? If anybody can help me out that would be awesome.

    Thanks in advance.

    It's the iSSD, but soldering takes a little bit of skill.
    Desolder is to heat up and remove the electronic component.
    You can also check youtube since it's both audio & video instructions.

    You can remove this drop of solder with knife and after that clean a gap between printed wires on motherboard with tip of knife or somewhat like a needle may be used.

    A lot easier and a lot less nerve racking.

    Using a knife is going to require a lot of control because it can accidentally trip and cut something else. :D

    I had problem too, my windows 10 installation (installed on issd) stopped working, I tried reinstalling but the installation did not even work.

    Opened up the case and did gently pry the chip of with a flat headed screwdriver. Now it work as a charm again.
