I have just fitted a SSD drive in my computer windows 7 64 bit system, when I installed windows onto the new SSD I just unplugged my old hard drive and fitted the SSD and just installed windows 7 and all worked ok.
But after the new install was working I was told I needed to make a change in the BIOS to alter the settings from treat Sata as IDE to treat Sata as AHCI.
I did this and all was ok with the new drive the installation worked and the new drive is running ok.
But now I have since read that I should have made the bios change before installing windows nad should not be done after the install,
So do I need to reinstall windows 7 with the bios changes to treat sata as AHCI before I install or will it work ok it seems to be ok but im not sure now.
I was also under the impression that I could still have my old hard drive fitted and just select the hard drive I wanted to boot from as the computer started, I wanted to do this so I could still has access to all my old stuff if I needed it.
But now my old hard drive will not boot until I change the Bios back to treat Sata as IDE, so is this not going to work or will I have to change the bios each time I need access to my old drive.
Also I have an Asus P6T SE motherboard so can I plug the SSD into any Sata port or is it better to plug it into number 1 if so how do I find which one is number one.
