Windows 7: IDE ot AHCI for SATA drives (SSD and regular)

15 Sep 2009   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
IDE ot AHCI for SATA drives (SSD and regular)

I would like the good and bad about running your SATA drives in IDE and AHCI modes.

I have 3 drives. 1 SSD and 2 normal hard drives.

Does it even make a difference? I have an Esata bracket that I want to run in AHCI mode but how about the normal system and data drives? What is the best way to set up drives?


Thanks for any information.
