So:
  1. Clone (not backup) C (697GB) only to SSD. Leave it a primary partition. It doesn't fit so will be shrunk automatically by macrium. Make it ACTIVE and align to 1MB
  2. Detach original HDD from system now!
  3. Do a startup repair 3 times from win7 install DVD (or win7 system repair CD) to recreate bootmanager and boot menu. Startup Repair
Partition Alignment make partition type PRIMARY ACTIVE. Set alignment as shown on that website.

Do you have a system repair cd/dvd? System Repair Disc - Create
No repair disc yet. I will make one. I need to set ACHI in both windows and the bios?
I already explained in #28 most likely it's already active. Yes it must be set in bios as well after changing the registry settings in win7 Error message occurs after you change the SATA mode of the boot drive


I cloned the SSD and booted it fine in the HDD mode with raid on. I then did the Reg edit in the link above setting both to 0. I then restarted and opened in bios mode. I turned on Achi and restarted but it wont start.
If I take the bios setting off of ACHI and put it back to Raid on it will start and run. The Samsung Pro SSD seems to run ok. but Samsungs performance software says it's good but ACHI needs to be set...
What to do? I typeing now with the ACHI settings done in windows but not in the bios.

Also I wish I made notes of the value settings in both so I could go back if needed at some point. Does anyone know what they might be?

strange... what is "unkown"?
It is in the screennshot shown here Device Manager Shortcut - Create and of course on my machine. You miss more... for example DVD

Please revert the changes you made to AHCI reg settings in registry, reboot and post screenshot again

In registry goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\iaStorV what is the value of "Start" on the right?

Same for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\iaStor (if key exists)
Same for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci

I haven't made any changes to the registry yet as I thought you might want to know what the unknown is.
also the dvd isn't in the media bay. My storage HDD is. Here is a shot of unknown.

Is this still going after 7 days? LOL. it is 3 clicks with paragon migrate program.

Maybe the OP should try your adaptive restore tutorial. There is a paragon freebie in there. It is not recent paragon version, but it only takes a few seconds - it is worth a go.
