Wont see old boot drive (AHCI) new boot drive is IDE

November 30, 2012 11:13:54 PM

Just installed windows 7 on my new intel SSD (plugged into the intel 6gb/s sata port).

My old drive was in AHCI mode, but when i tried to install windows on my new SSD while on AHCI mode it wouldn't go past 0%.
I read on a few forums that i couldn't install windows while in ACHI mode, so I changed to IDE.

Now it wont recognize my old bootdrive in windows, (still have stuff on there i want to keep).

If i try to change back to AHCI mode in bios, it wont boot windows.
Please help :)
