I am looking at your mother board on Asus site now. It has options of other expansion sata ports. Do you have more than 1. Are all of your internal sata ports red in color?

The Tom's hardware article is only for raid. He wants to run raid and a SSD not in the raid array. I don't believe you should have any issues if all ports are in ahci.

I would suggest that you set the Intel ports as ahci and use them for all of your drives.

Not to sure what you mean by " more than 1" as for the sata ports yes there are ones that are a different colour, they are orange i think (cannot check right now on the train)

Your motherboard has 6 sata ports controlled by Intel controller, red. There appear to be 2 sata ports controlled by J Micron which are orange. I am only asking to make sure which ports are set to ahci. The bios picture you showed didn't say which sata controller it is. But in your manual it shows setting the ports to ahci and the picture looks the same as what you showed in the screenshot. This is from your manual. Set the ports to ahci before you install. The link I gave you earlier about using diskpart was only for the SSD. The other disks should work either way.

The snip posted above. #8 is the JMicron ports, #7 are the intel ports. You set them to ahci in bios before you install windows.


EDIT: Am I confusing you?

It should be in ahci if the bios is set that way. If you don't have AS SSD, download it. Don't run the test. just open it up, select your SSD at the top and post a screenshot. It will tell the alignment, the firmware installed on the SSD, and the controller. Then you will know. If I am confusing you, please let me know and I will try to explain everything. I may not be up much longer. It's getting late here and I know it is quite late there. I will be on early in the morning, but there is usually someone else around to help. But, post your screenshot of AS SSD.
