I just received a new Samsung 850 SSD. I checked that disk controller mode should be SATA for better performance but in my case (Windows 7 OS on current old hard disk) it's set to IDE. Here is the screenshot.
Now once I install the new OS (Win 8.1) on this new hard disk - the disk controller mode will still be IDE. So do now I need to go to registry and change the key as mentioned here ? After that do I need to change it in BIOS as well?
