post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 
***? Why does it default to IDE? Also, my pc won't detect my SSD I just put in, does it have something to do with this?

Try setting it to AHCI. A lot of boards revert their default settings to IDE. Why, I don't even know.

Look in your manual to see what it says about switching to AHCI mode. On my board it actually enables some other SATA ports and another RAID controller, etc. IDE was what the regular setting for SATA II was.

AHCI

You won't loose your OS if you change modes. There is a simple fix you can do within Windows.

Very nice, +rep for that sir.

I wonder if it works in XP, I'll have to try it before my next re-install.

I usually keep mine set to ide mode- has broader compatibility, in my experience. with brand new gear all around- ahci is the most advanced, and should aid a little bit in performance.

The issue is that if it's not needed (ie not detected to be needed your AHCI controller gets switched off)
OK -heres what you do- AND IT WON"T BORK your install

Quote:
This issue occurs if the AHCI driver (Msahci.sys) in Windows 7 and Windows Vista is disabled.
This driver must be enabled before you change the SATA mode of the boot drive.

1. Exit all Windows-based programs.
2. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.

If you receive the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.

3. Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\System\\CurrentControlSet\\Ser vices\\Msahci

4. In the right pane, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.

5. In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.
On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor.

6. Reboot and change to AHCI in BIOS

Sorted

[Edit] Nice one simpletech- beat me to it +1
Took me longer as I was trying to find the original MS kb- generally when advising people to go mucking about with their registry I always like to go with the MS source.

[EditII] How rude of me..what I meant to say...
Nice find Simpletech- great contribution
and welcome to OCN
Good to have ya
Cheers

Thanks. Yup it does work for XP as well. Here is another thread I found. You can also use nLite to integrate the drivers before hand.

Ha ha.

Yeah I was looking for the original Microsoft link too. Couldn't find it quick enough and figured that 95% of the links I found were all basically based of the same premise.
