You can enable AHCI in the registry, then switch from IDE to AHCI in the Bios.
Performance varies, but don't expect a huge performance bump as only SSD's really benefit from SATA III.
AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista

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?
