Many tutorials explaining how to change from one mode to the other. Usually it revolves around these instructions:
Start = 0 tells Windows to load the driver during boot. By the way:
MSAHCI is now
storahci in Windows 8.
I installed Windows in RAID mode. Because the RAID manager always pops up during boot and I don't use RAID anyways I want to switch to AHCI.
I thought I could do that by setting the startup mode of
iaStorA to manual (
Start=3), but then I receive a BSOD after changing the mode in BIOS. When just leaving them like they are (both services at
0) and switching to AHCI in BIOS (from RAID) I also receive the BSOD.
I can always switch back to RAID with no problem, but I would love to switch to AHCI. Any steps I'm missing?
