Going from IDE to single-RAID, will i need to reinstall

Ok, i have a raid-1 setup (non-boot, just backup) in sata 1&2
My SSD Vertex is in sata5 (IDE mode)
In bios, i can have 1-4 and 5-6 different.
But, for some reason, i cannot have 1-4 raid and 5-6 AHCI (I want my vertex AHCI, for better Multithreaded reads/writes.

OCZ Forum - View Single Post - Discussion AS SSD Benchmark

I can have RADE-RAID, RAID-IDE, AHCI-AHCI IDE-IDE AHCI-IDE
If i select raid-raid, (making vertex single member raid) will i have to reinstall my vertex, or will everything be intact? Is single member raid the same as AHCI? Thanks!
(Reg "fix" done so AHCI done allready so BSOD wont happen)

I did not have to reinstall.
Just made it Raid-Raid, set the correct boot order, and all is well.
(Shows my vertex as an EX now tho)
Will post all benches in a few

No AHCI option in BIOS, is my computer default in AHCI or IDE?
I bought a brand new SSD, installed it in Windows 7, and there is no option in my BIOS for the SATA controller (to switch between IDE and AHCI Mode). How do I determine whether my computer's sata controller is using IDE or AHCI? I want to make sure that my AHCI controller is enabled and not IDE...

Ahci
Hi to all, How can I set the Hard drive (operation) to AHCI in Windows and BIOS? Working in BIOS is simpler because it has a limited number of menus.

No AHCI
On my work PC I've changed the registry setting and rebooted but it didn't install the drivers. In Device Manager there's no AHCI. Can't boot if BIOS is set to AHCI because there is none according to Windows. I've tried everything I can think of. Any ideas?
