I have been reading some very informative articles on changing over to ACHI from SATA drivers after Windows 7 been installed.
Well, I am trying to switch an Asus M487TD/USB3 board Dual booted with Vista 32bit and Windows 7-64 installed over to AHCI after getting a Corsair Force GT 120 SSD.
Got Win 7 partition all image over to the new SSD and it is now the Boot drive. I completed the registry hack part of the procedure done on both Win 7 and Vista partitions (was not Absolutely sure if that needed to be done but it made sense to do it). Then I went into Win 7 BIOS (SATA port 1) and switched over the controller to AHCI, saved and rebooted, black screen found no HDD went back into BIOS no HDD were detected not even the SATA DVD, changed back to SATA, booted OK went into registry and confirmed that the MSACHI was set to 0.
Anyone have any other ideas as to what went wrong? Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated, I just want to get all the performance I paid for.
