    Has anyone running an SSD upgraded to bootcamp 3.3?

    I currently have an Intel 320 series and I enabled manually the AHCI mode in order to get it working at a reasonable speed. The downside was that the bootcamp control panel doesn't work anymore.

    Now, there is this upgrade and I was wondering what it will do...

    I couldn't find any details about the changes that it includes.

    Thanks

    I have SSDs in my MP and my MBP and Win7 via bootcamp on both. Both have had the 3.3 update applied and all works fine.

    I have OCZ and OWC SSDs, not Intel.

    The OP used a hack to get AHCI mode that involves replacing the MBR through GUI or terminal, and installing Intel chipset drivers.

    Not sure if bootcamp package will ever work because it was designed to use drivers it came with which don't support AHCI.
