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.
Unfortunately i cannot run as-ssd (even though i re-downloaded it as above) get a another .dll error (WindowsCodecs.dll is either not designed to run on windows or contains an error)
I am 99% sure my ssd is running in ahci and rest are not, because when the computer boots (in the bios post) it says the ssd is ahci and the rest are ide. Is there any way to change that?

All options in the bios are set to ahci that i could find, same as the previous screen shots.

I am slightly confused but will try install anyway i have a little free time now
this is my plan
Disconnect all drives but the ssd
run that diskpart thing you mentioned earlier with clean only
format drive
install windows
install updates
reconnect other drives
link user account folders back up (e.g. my music and my videos)

Yeah I did, did everything as recommended, sata controller in enhanced mode set to achi as well, install went ok (not great though) but windows up and running fine I guess no real issues as far as I can tell, except when the computer powers on the screen progressively dims it self until I get to the windows login steen which is really annoying

Otherwise is ok

Thanks for your help
