Windows 7: My first solid state.

I think it is the SATA RAID/AHCI mode this may be only for RAID notice you have the setting twice. It is certainly very confusing the way it is done, what other options do you have for this?
To clarify I think this setting is wrong

I just got home so give me a few minutes.

Make sure AHCI is turned on in Bios.

If it is then make sure AHCI is turned on in Windows.

In the top part of your screenshot, you are setting the AHCI settings and such for the Intel ICH9R southbridge controllers.

The second AHCI settings is for the secondary controller on your motherboard. I'm betting you have nothing plugged into either of these ports and hence the reason it says it finds nothing. You should be able to change it from AHCI to disabled, and get rid of that message at boot.

I'd think you are plugged into the block of 4 ports and that's the Intel Controller and then one that I would use. If you have nothing in the other 2, I would set that to Disabled.

And the line that says onboard SATA/IDE Contr can likely be set to disabled. -- I believe this is the one that is throwing the error.

Whether or not you enable one and disable the other depends upon how many devices you have plugged into your motherboard. In your mobo, that first option sets ports 0 through 3. If you had other devices plugged into the other 2 ports, you would need those ports enabled as well.

Setting to AHCI usually gives you more performance, at least it benchmarks better.

So, if you have 4 or less SATA devices connected, you should be able to disable the onboard option and it should eliminate that error you see.

Yes enable #1 and disable #9. That should fix it.

So, disable the onboard controller then, and I bet your error goes away at startup. You have 4 devices and they are all running on the Intel controllers.
