Here is a tutorial that will tell you how to change to AHCI Mode. I don't know what will happen with the registry edit you did though. It appears you put those channels in IDE mode, but you have both controllers in Device manager.

That edit is to make your system load ahci drivers, but you already have them. What I think is that your edit of the registry put those chanels in IDE. One of those chanels is where your OS is installed and that is why you can't boot in ahci.

In the right pane of the msahci you have to click "Start" and then "Modify". That wll show the 0 or 3.

If you feel adventuresome, you can try to revert the registry to the exact way it was before you made the edits. Then reboot and go into bios and change to ahci. If it works, your system will boot. If not, you will probably have to re- install.

It shows 0 already.
But you know what i find very weird ? Let's say i have no Windows installed on my HDD or SSD.
Okay, i go into BIOS, change to AHCI, get ready to install Windows on AHCI mode.
But i cannot boot from CD / DVD when AHCI is enabled.
Normally, after those 23 seconds - when i got stuck under AHCI, when i press ENTER or F12 ( quick boot ) it appears either the BIOS menu or the quick boot menu.
But now, if i am on AHCI, it doesent appears nothing, anymore, so i'm not able to install when is AHCI enabled in BIOS.
And that happent even if i choice First Boot Device - DVD

I wish i could, but i don't know how to revert the registry to the exact way it was before.
LE : I inserted the Windows 7 DVD, went into BIOS, changed to AHCI, like i wanna install Windows.
After that, i pressed F10, save and exit, etc
But there nothing happent, anymore.
It appears the same :
Serial ATA AHCI BIOS version i Src 1.20 E
Copyright ( c ) 2003-2008 Intel Corporation
** This version supports only hard disk and CDROM drives **
Please wait, this will take few seconds
Controller BUS #00, Device #1F, function #02: 06 Ports, 04 Devices

And that's it.
Should i unpplug the all the SATA, and try again ?

You may have a CD/DVD that will not work in ahci. Try this. Open an elevated command prompt (start-type cmd in search-right click and select run as administrator) In the window type sfc /scannow press enter. That is a system file checker to verify and attempt to repair damaged system files. Let us know what it says.

I installed yestarday Windows 7 with the same DVD.
And if i try sfc / scannow i don't think it helps to much.
The problem is when i try ( as a test, only ) to re-install Windows with AHCI, i can't
Just imagine my SSD is empty now, no Windows installed, nothing. I can't install / boot / when AHCI enabled.
