    What should I have these set to in the BIOS

    I just did a clean install on my SSD. In the Bios there are 3 settings I am not sure where to set for optimal performance:

    PCI IDE BusMaster (enabled)
    On-Chip Sata Controller (enabled)
    RAID Mode (AHCI)

    Is this correct or is there better settings?

    That is fine, leave it as it is.

    Raid (AHCI) and make the corresponding setting in Windows 7. AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista

    Thank you Golden and whs! Is it ok that I enabled AHCI in BIOS after I installed the OS or should I have done it before? AHCI is now enabled in Win 7 and BIOS.

    This is strange, after doing the clean install my D; drive (HDD) is not being recognized in Computer although I can see it in the BIOS when I set the boot order Hopefuly I didn't erase that drive by mistake by doing the clean install but i don't think I did. Any idea what I am doing wrong?
