Have tried reading the manual but cannot find any mention re resetting it - only on how to change it to the setting AHCI Windows repair screen, system restore, and retsore with system image but cannot get my system back.
Can someone help me with this disaster?? as I am not really that savvy and do not know how I can rest my BIOS to what it was. If it means taking it all apart again then I'll do that - HELP!!
Personally I think AHCI is the best choice, but you may need to re-install the AHCI drivers for the Gigabyte board and set the bios up properly again.
You can do this without damaging the system. Boot with your Windows DVD and when Windows gives you the option to install drivers, install them.
The AHCI drivers for Gigabyte are here; GIGABYTE - Support & Downloads
I have had this a couple of times on machines with Gigabyte boards after the BIOS has been reset. It's not really a big deal, just annoying.
There is also a good guide here for another way to do it; http://forums.pcper.com/showthread.php?t=444831
