I have managed to mess up my computer by changing the BIOS to ACHI for my SSD and now I cannot get the operating system (or anything else) to start. I wanted reinstall my Win 7 on a new SSD drive I recently installed. Already had it on a 64gb SSD. I acted to hastily as my previous post shows!!
How do I resolve this problem please? This time I will wait and not jump the gun!
Re starting computer and pressing f8 to get to the Advanced Boot Options trying every option on this screen.
When I chose the safe mode I get to a page called Windows Error Recovery if i choose repair mode it goes through startup repair is checking your system for problems then I get Windows cannot repair this computer automatically when I look at the problem details I see the following

I cannot get past this page and have to turn off the computer.
my understanding is: If you installed windows on the ssd in ide mode......then, you cannot just go to the achi mode. You have to start over, set the bios to the achi mode, then install windows. You will likely end up having to re-format and partition the ssd b4 you'll be able to do this now. Good luck
