I bought a 120GB OWC Mercury Extreme Pro back in February of this year.
About a week ago I started noticing my computer having a blue screen when I got up in the morning. My computer wakes up from sleep in the middle of the night to run a nightly backup to my home server. There are no dump files written by Windows, presumably it is because my SSD is not responsive. If I reset the PC it may not detect the SSD during POST, but a power cycle fixes the detection issue. OWC issued a firmware update back in March, I have updated with my drive with the latest firmware but the problem persists.
I've experienced a few BSOD while actively using the computer. Usually the computer slows to a halt and is non-responsive for a couple minutes. The clock on the desktop keeps ticking, so the system isn't completely frozen, but the apps that are running don't respond to input. After a while, the BSOD appears. The error seems to be STOP: 0x000000F4.
Anyhow, I think given the SSD is not detected after reset, the log files never get written to disk, and the system is unresponsive (and the SSD is my system drive) I feel like the issue is likely due to the SSD. OWC has given me an RMA number, but I would need to move the SSDs image to a hard drive before I return it. Is there any issues with moving a system drive partition from an SSD to a HD? I remembered reading that a fresh install of Windows 7 on an SSD sets up TRIM and other functionality correctly. If the system drive is replaced with a HD, will I run into further problems with Windows?
