    Thanks, Brink, for the link. I got the AMD version right prior to this one, through the HP website as being *the* update under Windows 8. I'll try this one out and report back after testing.

    After much installing and uninstalling, I found out that the latest Catalyst driver from AMD does not work on my system. So I am back to square one. Haven't made progress.

    Hopefully it will for you as well.

    Wow! Once again I can't thank you enough, I was having an issue where I just did a clean install Win8.1 pro on a Sandisk ultra Plus SSD in the main slot for my gf's laptop and put the old hdd in the cd-rom slot using a sata caddy, but it would crash at the windows load screen everytime I started from a cold boot (shut down, not restart). I knew it couldn't be the SSD because it ran fine after restarts, so I applied the registry hack and set battery and Plugged in to HIPM+DIPM, and so far after several shutdowns and start ups not one crash!

    Thank you!

    Any idea why this is happening? Happened waking computer from sleep for you Shaun, right? And it happened to me from after a shutdown, which technically is not a full shut down on windows 8/8.1? It is a kind of hibernate, correct?

    Hello hotrippr,

    I haven't got it narrowed down to anything specific, but the above with AHCI - HIPM+DIPM, and having fast startup turned off helps sometimes.

    Well everything is going well so far with the HIPM+DIPM registry tweak so I think I will keep Fast Startup enabled as the PC is starting up lightning fast with it enabled. But thank you I will keep it in mind for future reference if problems should arise.

    I am having exactly the same problem. I have AHCI enabled in BIOS, but I still do not have that HIPM/DIPM option in advanced power options under hard disk. I do not even have Msachi entry in registry. I tried adding that using a .bat file from internet, and my laptop got stuck in restart loop, that i fixed by restoring using recovery disk. Any help will be appreciated regarding that. Thanks in advance.

    Ok, I figured Msachi is not in windows 8, but storachi. I got HIPM/DIPM option under hard hard disk, and I tried almost every setting, that still did not resolve the issue.
