HOW TO Enable AHCI Windows 7 Without Re installing

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys

Thought i would just add some useful information

This method is obviously if you enabled IDE in the Bios and installed Windows and now want to change to AHCI without re installing .

I used this method to enable AHCI as i had my drives in IDE mode in the bios and this works flawlessly without re installing the OS .

This method works for SSD and non SSD drives.

Enjoy

I've done this before as well. I used the exact same link. It's been so long ago, (about a year and a half) but if memory serves me correctly I had the same experience as you. ZERO issues, it just "worked" after I made the registry modifications.
