I'm experiencing the same problems as described earlier in this topic. A very slow boot time. After doing some research I too found out my iSSD is neither detected by the BIOS nor by the windows device manager and disk manager. So far I didn't made any hardware changes (was about to though), and have only used the iSSD for what it was meant to do. I'm going to contact ASUS this week, to inform them my laptop is in need of repair. I'm from the Netherlands (europe), and I will see how they deal with repair here. I hope they will be quick (I need my computer for my study) And ofcourse I hope I won't receive a damaged product, like other people had.
