K Just making sure you did not change any settings in that area. You can leave it in IDE mode. If you wanted to try out AHCI, there is a registry tweak you can do so that you do not have to reinstall the OS. If you want it for later on, I will post it here.

If you installed Windows 7 on an ATA configured drive (like I did), you don’t need to re-install the OS again; a small registry tweak will enable the AHCI driver and Windows will re-detect the drive on next boot up.

The registry key is located in:

HKLM\\System\\CurrentControlSet\\Servuces\\msahci.

The Key is a reg_dword named ‘start’. In non-AHCI system, this is set to ‘3’. To enable the AHCI driver, this needs to be changed to ‘0’.
You boot up normally and do the tweak. Restart after the tweak and load BIOS and change to AHCI before the next OS boot.

By the way, I just noticed that Windows 7's built-in ISO extracting utility does not have the ability to select anything but optical drives. So, I'm using third-party software (which happens to be WinRAR, my favorite).
I'll try both, thanks!

I'm lost, so I need to download a third party program to my father's laptop (he has the microsoft one)? If so, I see you posted WINRAR. I wouldn't even know how this process works, but I didn't click the last two links you posted. Still waiting on the flash drive, but I suppose the directions are there in both 32 and 64 link.

I tried this:
-Unplugged everything
-Plugged in only one SSD
-Unplugged everything
-Plugged in the last SSD by itself

Still no luck for me, *sigh*.

WinRAR is like WinZIP.

32-bit or 64-bit: the instructions are identical.

Does your father's laptop have a CD or DVD burner?

So I'm trying to understand what this post was about (just not so focused), are you trying to teach me how to run in AHCI mode? Or recommending I switch to this mode properly, and see if it restores my OS?

Sorry in advance, I'm just tripping out at the moment. I really want my computer back up with it's original state (prior to the crash).

Sorry for the double post, but I'm just so annoyed with this laptop (so use to my desktop's keyboard and mouse):

No my father does not have one, but I was just on a friend with a CD burner (not a DVD burner).

Ha, the USB flash drive method totally works exactly as advertised!

Beautiful!!


Edit: you can use a CD-R if you have that option more readily available.

Just to refresh my memory, without going back to the first (or is it the second page?): I can use the flash method you posted before the two 32 and 64 links, correct?


By the way I clicked the link for the 32/64 bit & saw it asked for me to burn it to a disk. I hope my friend truly does have a CD burner, and I hope it supports CD-R's.

EDIT: Well, I suppose I should first wait for you to post and clarify which method I should use. Since, I'm confused about it: Do I do the last method you posted (32/64 link), but instead of burning it to a disk I should use a flash drive? Is that what you recommended, or was it the first series of links you sent me (I read through the website, so I'm guessing it's that one - the first helping link you sent).

It's a tiny ISO. You could put like 6 copies of it on a CD-R.

Make sure that you keep in mind that you're not "burning" the ISO to a flash drive or to a CD-R (or DVD-R). It's like a .ZIP file: you have to extract its contents to the flash drive/CD-R/DVD-R.

Edit: You can use whatever you want: a flash drive, a CD-R, a DVD-R, or an external hard drive. As long as you extract the contents of the ISO to something that is bootable (and they show you how to make a USB flash drive bootable) and then boot from that thing, you will be able to do this.

AFAIK hirens is free, its a huge collection of freeware, and a handful of shareware tools for managing and recovering a range of PC critical systems. I think theres a big wiki built around hirens. take a look, make sure you can do what you want to do. ive built and rebuild many bootmgr's ( with a gui! )
