    I waited for like two weeks to get an answer to my problem with their SSD drives and boot camp.

    Then they tell me that they will RMA my drive to send me one that works.

    Then they ship me the same Frakin drive.

    Are you sure it's not some sort of updated revision?

    phew!

    I suddenly panicked when I saw that thread title and thought it was 1999 and I'd gone insane, imagining the last 10 years.

    I thought this was going to be a thread about how a G5 laptop running OS 9.3 is going to SPANK those awful Wintel Windoze laptops once they get around the 25 minute battery life and built in lap-cooker the "sources" are saying apple is working on.

    Sorry to hear about your drive by the way.

    Same problem. Drive has same markings.

    Windows will not see the drive to install.

    Same problem.

    +1 to checking the exact product / model number. It may be a newer drive.
    Also, you may have had a lemon.

    Additionally, an RMA is meant for a direct replacement only, unless this is some sort of common issue, and they actually advertised it as being compatible but it is not. If not, it is not up to intel to shop for the right drive for you...

    That is BS

    This is a common problem that they know about.

    They even told me that I would be getting revision 903. but they sent me 902.

    They are sending me a new one again tomorrow.

    oh, OK, they are morons in that case :p

    Saying one thing and giving you another is either stupidity or a simple clerical error of sorts...
