Just to ask, why did you install the SSD in IDE mode from the very beginning? Also, does this system also have a HDD installed? If so, was the HDD physically installed and connected to the system when you installed the SSD?
For best, long term, results, you should consider re-installing Win 7 with only the SSD installed, in AHCI mode. After doing that, you can reattach the HDD and begin to install apps.
I know it's best to re-install however I can not. This is my moms business PC computer and she is an accountant and a Real estate brocher.
There would just be too much work involved.
the HDD was already installed and I cloned everything onto the SSD.
