System not booting properly or correctly utilizing SSD
I have a MSI Z87-GD65 mobo with a Samsung 840 Evo 120 GB plugged into either the first or second sata port. I say either because it started plugged into the first but randomly decided not to recognize the boot device. I cleared this up temporarily by plugging it into the second port instead.
While trying to figure out what is wrong with my system I discovered in the BIOS that my SSD is being read as a sata2 connection instead of the sata3 that it is setup as.
Can anyone help me on either of my two problems?

go into bios/uefi and set AHCI mode instead of IDE- that might clear up the issue. I had your first issue-no idea why and just swapped the sata port aswell. Issue hasn't come up again. I have the same mobo and ssd. Good luck MSI brother!
