  4. Locate and then click the following registry sub key:
    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\msahci
    
  5. In the right pane right-click Start in the Name column and then click Modify.
  6. In the Value data box, type 0 [3 is default], and then click OK.
  7. On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor.
  8. Restart your computer
  9. Go to UEFI/BIOS and enable AHCI, Save & Reboot
  10. Another restart will be required to finish the driver installation.

I assume this would make a massive difference?

Looks like you're still running in IDE mode to me?

And to the OP, yes running on a SATA III port would make a big difference to benchmarks, for normal use you're unlikely to notice. Things like small reads/writes and access times are (probably) unaffected, as you're not maxing out the bandwidth of SATA II with them.

So I'd say just use it on SATA II, then put the money you might put towards a SATA III card on something more useful smile.gif

Yep that is still IDE mode. In the top left it should be green and say "msahci - OK," not "pciide - BAD."

Redo it.

In the bios says AHCI, I don't know...
I'll redo it.

Edit:
Ok I had to change another thing in the bios, now ahci is enabled:
