Btw is there any good updated guide to use Win Toolkit? I've only found one from here, which is little outdated and one from their forums, which is kinda diffucult to get in to.
I am not sure. I haven't used it in a long while either. lol

I have changed it to AHCI mode but then my bios doesn't detect any drives even though they flash up on a screen that's too quick to read properly just before entering the bios screen. It won't let me install windows with it in IDE (where it detects the drives) or AHCI (where it doesn't). It just gets to the same point every time! I have checked my bios is up to date, have the latest firmware etc, but still nothing.
I'm normally messing about with laptops and have installed 4 SSD's so far, with no problems. I put 1 in my PS3 2 days ago, very easy to do, so I thought putting 1 in a PC would be straight forward, so far I have spent half a day trying to do this seemingly simple task to no avail!
Please can someone help me, any ideas would be great!
Have to say thank you to Sean for the best guide I have come across. Usually use tune up utilities to do some of those tasks but I would prefer to not have an extra program running so will be doing them myself from now on.
Does anyone still have a link to the PDF version the 1 at the start is no good anymore?
When you use AHCI you may have to just load your SATA driver manually during install so the drive shows up. What motherboard are you using?
I also just the PDF link. Sorry about that, been busy.
