I can only boot with CD, when is on IDE.
I try now. But, if there would be something wrong with the OS, i couldn't boot on IDE.
But when is on IDE, Windows is working great.
LE Startup Repair said " No problems found"

Leave it on IDE then. So, I understand that if you change it to AHCI you can't boot, but if you leave it on IDE you can boot?

Right.
That's very annoying. If i leave it on IDE, do i have some disadvantages, IDE vs AHCI ?
If i have AHCI i cannot acces BIOS or F12 ( quick boot )
But i could, yesterday. I dont know what's wrong.

Yes, usually. You normally get better performance from your SSD, you enable NCQ(native command queing) and hot swap. But, if you were in AHCI mode when you took the backup image, you should have the ahci drivers loaded and be able to boot in ahci mode. That is the part I don't understand. Are you sure you were in AHCI mode to begin with?

I'm 100 % sure i were in AHCI mode when i installed Windows, and until 30-50 minutes ago.
I don't understand what's wrong. And i wanna use AHCI, not IDE.
Let me explain something, please. Before i made the backup, i changed something.
It's about hotswap icon. I didn't wanna have it there because i find it useless.Anyway.
This commands i added in command promt, to get ride of hotswap icon.

reg.exe add "HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\msahci\Controller0\Channel0" /f /v TreatAsInternalPort /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001"
And of course, channel 1 / 2 / for another hdd's
After i added this to command promt, i restarted my pc, everything was fine.No more hotswap icon.
Do you think, that could be the problem ?
Should i try to recover the backup image, again, with the Acronis CD Recovery ?

That may have put it in IDE mode. Give me a second.

If you have already recovered the image, doing it again will only give you what you have right now.
Try this, go into regedit go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services, in the left pane click "msahci", tell me what the value is. If it is 0 that should mean ahci is enabled if it is 3 that should mean IDE. Don't change anything yet. Also go to device manager and expand Ide ATA/ATAPI controllers and tell me what drivers you see at the bottom of that list.

Here's my problem. In device manager you have both AHCI drivers and IDE drivers there. Wit a couple of registry entries, you can go back to ahci mode. But, with the change you made to the registry I don't know what will happen then. Do you have anything in the computer that is connected by IDE such as an IDE CD/DVD?

I have :
2 x HDD SATA
1 X DVD RW SATA
1 X SSD SATA
No IDE device.
I would install Windows again, if i'd know that everything is gonna be fine.
Is maybe my keyboard ( PS2 ) a problem ? I wouldn't think so.
