I ran my SSD in IDE mode for nearly 1 year as my BIOS introduced an 8 second delay at each boot that I didn't want to deal with. All of the automatic OS settings like disabling defrag and TRIM worked just fine on the drive in this configuration.

After running like this for some time, there was a BIOS update for my mobo which reduced the 8 second delay to 2 seconds. I installed the new BIOS, backed up my data and reinstalled Windows after switching to AHCI mode.

Honestly, i cannot tell, nor can I prove with a stopwatch that ANYTHING is noticeably faster in AHCI mode. A benchmark shows that it's faster in random 4K reads/writes (If I recall correctly), that was not measurable from a day to day perspective.

So, honestly, if your box blue screens in AHCI mode but runs fine in IDE mode....perhaps it's best to just run IDE mode. Go by how the drive actually performs, not by looking at screenshots of benchmarks that you cannot read and understand. If you installed in IDE mode and it boots fast, and launches applications instantly, and loads games faster than ever before....it's working.

This is what I found concerning your error panais:

Random BSOD Windows 7 BBCode: F4 - TechSpot OpenBoards

It may not be related to the SSD since it's new but who knows.

Ok ofcurse i will follow the advices.

Btw what about this error? Any clues from it?
If i remember well is from the first installation,i finish everything,updates etc,shutdown the pc,and the morning when i start the pc is started with BSOD.

I bought this ssd to work,play in AHCI and boost little my old system.....


Well,you are right all of you guys you are advice the right way

I may set again in bios the SATA RAID\AHCI Mode to AHCI and the Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode to disable if possile and reinstall windows. If i BSOD again i will disable AHCI, install again win7 and stick with IDE.

Seth, I searched also. Most of the ones I found say it is hardware related and usually either ram or hard drive.

Panais, You don't have to reinstall. You can simply do the registry hack Hopalong linked to and change to ahci. If it bsods again, just change bios back to IDE and it will boot fine.
