I installed Windows 7 on my SOLID 2 Series SSD with it only plugged in during install. I latter added a 1tb Spinpoint F3 hard drive, and velociraptor for programs. Despite the bios is in ACHI mode and it says ACHI controller installed I get these two things popping up.

Is this normal? Can I change it to ACHI from installing drivers

It's normal for the SATA controller to show up beneath the "IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers" node in Device manager, even if it's set to AHCI mode.
