Hi i have a few questions regarding AHCI in my bios, First let me explain i did the Regedit tweak to enable AHCI but I'm confused as to what mode to use.
From my Bios manual Biostar A2+/TA790GX A2+ OnChip SATA Type
This option allows you to select the on-chip Serial ATA operation mode.
Options: Native IDE (Default) / RAID / AHCI / Legacy IDE / IDE->AHCI
SATA IDE Combined Mode
This option controls the SATA/PATA combined mode.
Options: Enabled (Default) / Disabled
I have it set to (AHCI)
currently and i see a screen detects AHCI drives when booting and then boots windows, I notice in this mode under hard drive configuration i don't see any drives but it still shows it under boot options,
I tried the (IDE->AHCI)
mode and I can then see my SATA hard drives show up in hard drive configuration and was still able to boot but i wasn't sure if this is the correct mode to use and if AHCI was enabled? or if both IDE and AHCI was enabled?, Or if it is some mixed mode? I'm Trying to figure out the difference between them 2 modes.
I disabled SATA IDE combined mode as i have no IDE drives in my system, I believe that is only needed enabled when i have IDE and SATA drives installed at the same time?
