With Services.msc, I can see everything. With msconfig, my choices are limited (when looking at its Services tab).

Even msconfig's help file says so:

Using System Configuration

System Configuration is a tool that can help identify problems that might prevent Windows from starting correctly. You can start Windows with common services and startup programs turned off and then turn them back on, one at a time. If a problem doesn't occur when a service is turned off, but does occur when that service is turned on, then the service could be the cause of the problem.

System Configuration is intended to find and isolate problems, but it's not meant as a startup management program. To permanently remove or turn off programs or services that run at startup, see Uninstall or change a program.
So, I bypass this thing and I use Services.msc. I also check these three Registry keys:

Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Wow6432Node\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Run
Code:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SOFTWARE\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Run
Code:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\\Software\\Microsoft\\Windows\\CurrentVersion\\Run
On top of that, I recommend disabling all unnecessary things in the BIOS.

You can also turn off unnecessary Windows Features:





Of course, there's also Black Viper's site:

Finally, there are many things that start with Windows that go right to the Notification Area that don't need to be there.

Yep! Here's an excerpt from an OCZ guide (http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/fo...ks-Utilities-*):

Change from IDE to AHCI Mode after Installation

Information: AHCI stand for Advance Host Controller Interface. AHCI is a hardware mechanism that allows software to communicate with Serial ATA (SATA) devices (such as host bus adapters) that are designed to offer features not offered by Parallel ATA (PATA) controllers, such as:
  • Hot-Plugging
  • Native Command Queuing (NCQ) -might improve computer/system/hard disk responsiveness, especially in multi-tasking environment
You can read more about AHCI mode HERE

Instruction: There is one way to fix this, although you need to have knowledge of registry editing.
The detailed steps from Microsoft website are as follows:
  • Exit all Windows-based programs.
  • Press [Win] + R or take the RUN option from the start menu.
  • Now type regedit there and press Enter Key to open up the Registry Editor Window.
  • If you receive the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.
  • Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\System\\CurrentControlSet\\Ser vic es\\msahci
  • In the right pane, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.

  • In the Value data box, type 0 [3 is default], and then click OK.
  • On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor.
  • Restart your computer
  • Go to BIOS and enable AHCI, Save & Reboot
  • Another restart will be required to finish the driver installation.

Alternatively

Just download this Reg File and double-click to implement AHCI on your Windows-based computer.
Just remember to do the BIOS switch as well when you reboot.
It's a computer!
