bios cant see my 2 ssds and hardrive

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
i just got a new motherboard and processor. I'm messin with the bios right now, and when i set my 2 ssd's and hardrive to ide, my bios see my hardrives correctly, but once i change it to ahci, all 3 of them dissapear from the list.

How can I fix this?

and also, if setting my harddrives to ide to install windows 7 64 bit, is it really a bad thing? what's the difference between ide and ahci for windows 7?

forgot to add: mobo is gigabyte p55-ud4p

Its supposed to do this AFAIK, I cant see my drives once I set RAID in BIOS
If you are going to be using AHCI then it is best to install with the BIOS set to that

alright. I'm having another problem now. At the windows install screen I can see 1 ssd and my 500gb hardrive, but can't see my second ssd in the hardrive section. I`ve tried putting the second ssd to slave, but still the same problem...will I see it once windows is installed?
