Try the 2 boxes below that box. That's just the detector. I didn't read that. It should be in that box, look around using esc and enter.

Try flashing the newest BIOS for your motherboard.

But again, it's not going to work unless you reinstall W7 right after your change the setting. YOU CANNOT RESTART INTO WINDOWS. You have to reformat your drive and reinstall windows. Windows will take care of almost everything. But after you change the setting you have to select CD-ROM for your first boot device and put W7 in your DVD player. THEN Restart and windows will reformat and then install windoz again, so SAVE ALL YOUR STUFF.

No you do the regedit, then go into bios and change to ahci.

2nd SS is where it should be. Not sure why it's not there. Legacy and Native IDE won't enable AHCI. RAID uses AHCI, but not sure if you can enable it with a single drive. Worth a shot I suppose.

As said before, check for an updated BIOS or look through the manufacturer's change notes for the different BIOS and see if one of them says anything about adding or deleting the AHCI option.

Raid disables TRIM, so not an option

Honestly I'd be looking at firmware updates from OCZ or something of that sort. I doubt the lack of AHCI is your problem.

EDIT: Might want to try backing up the drive as an image, update/reload the firmware, and run sanitary/secure erase, then restore the image and see if performance improves.

Wrong on so many level here.

1.IDE support trims too.
2.Raid doesn't support trim yet.
3.Changing to AHCI after installing OS will give you BSOD upon reboot.
