Advanced Format Drive and IDE Mode

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Does IDE vs AHCI/RAID mode have anything to do with advanced format drives. I need to replace an OS HDD in an old machine with the ICH7 southbridge - just want to make sure IDE mode isn't going to be a problem.

Also, just to verify, if I'm doing a clean install with Windows 7 I don't need to worry about alignment, right?
