Hi Tesla,

 

I've been following some troubleshootings  and I could fix  USB 3.0, AlienFx & secure boot so far (for secure boot i did not touch anything actually)

 

Regarding dual-boot I've uncheck "show OS list" at system preferences, but its very strange because I deleted the whole SSD before installing.  Shall i reinstall w8 again and pass through all this process one more time or that won't be necessary?

Hard to say without seeing your drives partitions.

There might be a Dell Diagnostic partition at beginning of drive. There is a special way of deleting that. If you were to change that, yes ... I think t would take another install.

You can always just run Easy-BCD and fix it that way.

I mean that when I go menu > sleep , or after 30 minutes stand by, instead of turning into sleep mode my pc will automaticly switch off ;(.   There is any chance to fix this issue?

Sorry, no ... never seen that. Is BIOS still on S3 sleep setting? Sounds like a Windows problem with ACPI . Have you check Power Profiles?

Sounds good.

If you decide to delete that partition (to free space on SSD) and re-install clean and perfect (now that you know how) ... here are my notes. They will delete everything as in nuke-and-pave. Looks like they might be written as moving a previous system drive to 2nd drive, but you get the idea.


Deleting the Windows 7 'OEM' partition, and any other utility partitions.

My directions:

I just opened Command Prompt as Admin, or do this:
Windows Key> + R to open the run window and type "diskpart" to open MS DiskPart

Type "list disk" to display a list of the physical disks on your machine

Where n (e.g. 0, or 1 or 2 ) is the ID of your physical drive,
The Disk number should match what you see in Disk Management

type "select disk n" n= which ever the disk is.

To delete all the partitions type "clean". This is easier than attempting to delete one partition in which some oems lock since the "delete partition n" will give a error with some of the OEM partitions, so the only way around is to clear the disk by typing "clean"

then your free to partition your hard drive any way you want.

Restart Disk Management. It should ask to Initialize new disk

Hi again,

doing some tests,  I deactivated  Hybrid Sleep and now my pc goes to sleep and not shutting down, so this might be the problem.   

How should hybrid sleep works? Shall I press power buttom for waking up every time or how?
