RAID or AHCI ... who cares ... never seen any performance gain.... and raid has more options.

So leave it the way it is.

One last question: Why did you buy paragon??
A disk can be cloned by many free sotdware (I told you before).
Only important thing was the aligned... also possible with a lot... maybe all free clone/backup software.
Can also be done with Partitiot Wizard after cloning
I bought the Paragon because it was direct in doing what I wanted. The title alone "os to ssd" says it.
Other programs and methods seemed too complicated to me. $20 isn't much.. I spend that for lunch alot. I wanted to get this right. I don't know anything about alignment etc.
It this day and age of plug and play it's still not plug and play.

I can always change back to achi because you taught me if needed. I have all the info bookmarked and stored.

Thanks

Just put msahci, iastorv and atapi to start=0 (maybe the driver install does that automatically). Upgrade the current raid driver in device manager to "standard ahci 1.0 serial ata controller" (maybe uninstall current driver is enough). Put BIOS SATA in AHCI mode. That will do it.

But if I were you... I should leave it as it is now!

Thanks.... I may try that at some later date. I have work to do for a few days. It does run must faster now as it is then my Momentus XT did. I don't know if it could be better or not. I guess that's a whole other learning effort..
