AHCI Bios not installed. Help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Greetings everyone.

I just bought a Vertex 3 120g Firmware 2.06.

Before installment, I changed Sata type from [IDE] to [AHCI] and booted up into win7 64 bit CD install guide and made a fresh install. My other HDDs were not plugged in during installation.

Problem is that when I enabled AHCI in Bios, and booted up it said "AHCI Bios not installed".

I am not sure if this is a problem since I can load into Windows with no problems. Checking in Device management under SATA/IDE Controllers it seems to recognize it. Did a AS Benchmark and it seems to be average, a bit low though.

Though I did a new fresh install, this time with pre-install of RST.

Same message still pop up during load screen.

I am new into SSD, dont have any experience besides from reading any other informations I can find.

Can anyone please shed some light over this problem and general understand of what im doing right and wrong?

Specifations:

Win7 64 ultimate
Gigabyte P55A-UD3 Bios v. F11

Please dont look at my second post, the problem is still there.

After installing chipset drivers for motherboard, I tried unplugging my other 2 harddisk, the one with storage, the other with my old os system. Now when I boot up it will say that AHCI is not installed????

Any clue? I've googled, looking at any websites and I still cant figure out what is the problem here...

When I look at AS SSD Benchmark, the read/write doesnt look very promising and it says "pciide", implies that the drivers arent functional?

Please help
