Hi guys, I'm attempting to switch my SSD from IDE to ACHI by editing the registry without losing Windows. I have followed the guide that everyone has suggested here: http://www.ocztechnologyforum.com/forum/content.php?286... The problem is I cannot find that registry entry... it doesn't exist, so where do I go from here? Can I create that entry somehow? Any insight is greatly appreciated!
If you run win8, then it is in the difference area.
1)Press Windows Key + R, type regedit and press Enter.
2)For Msahci: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\storahci, in the right pane, right-click on Start entry and select Modify to "0".
Also HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\pciide, same as above
Or 2) For intel ahci
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\iaStorA, right-click on Start entry and select Modify to "0". HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\iaStorV, right-click on Start entry and select Modify to "0".
That link worked perfectly, I booted in with IDE mode normally, rebooted in safemode with it in ACHI mode, it booted fine, then shut off safe mode and rebooted, that was all it took. Thanks for the help guys!
