First you need to change the registry to enable AHCI through windows.... follow these steps:
Exit all Windows-based programs.
Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
If you receive the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.
Locate and then click one of the following registry subkeys:
In the right pane, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.
In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.
On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor.
Then reboot the system. Remember you will not be able to boot into windows unless you change the IDE Controller Mode in the BIOS from IDE/RAID to AHCI.
Therefore you need to get into the BIOS and change those particular settings.
After you have saved and exited the BIOS with the new settings to AHCI. you will be able to boot into windows, then run the Firmware update for the SSD with Admin Privileges.
Okay. After I run the firmware do I stay in AHCI or do i have to go back to the way it was?
