Hello all, had a quick issue i need to address. I know that booting up in AHCI mode gives you more performance than IDE in SSD's, but my pc can't seem to boot when I make the switch in my BIOS. It loads fine when I have it on IDE, but when I switch to AHCI and save the setting, I get a black screen with the white line at the top left. Here are pics of the bios and the black screen? Can anyone tell me what went wrong?
To change the sata type you need to reinstall your OS on the new type. Or change it back to IED then do what memadmax suggested, then you need not reinstall your os, and boot up OS under AHCI MODE,
Note: This method only works in Windows 7, Windows XP could not support.
If your CPU is based on AMD platform, you need to do another step, download the “AMD RAIDXpert” from AMD official website, then log in it and turn on NCQ mode. This is important.
If your CPU is based on Intel platform, you need no to do this, the NCQ mode is turned on autonomic when you change ide to ahci and install the latest driver of motherboard.
