Windows 7: Acronis True Image - Migrating Win 7 to a new SSD

Acronis True Image - Migrating Win 7 to a new SSD

Hi folks
I recently bought an SSD drive (ADATA SP900) and I want to migrate my original HDD to the new SSD. Acronis True Image (which comes as a free download from ADATA) has a detailed description of this job, see Acronis True Image 2014 Help. Everything seems to go well until I reach step 11 in which the program doesn't see any SSD attached, either I connect it to a SATA2 port (as it was the old HDD) or to a SATA3 port (MArvell controller). I guess it has to do with the IDE/AHCI configuration of my MB (Gigabyte GA-P55Α-UD3R). Here is a screenshot of the BIOS configuration page. Which of the 3 settings (marked with arrows 1,2,3 on the image) do I change (IDE-AHCI) ????

Many thx in advance

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
This is the preferred method,
SSD - Install and Transfer the Operating System

Although my preferred method for a new ssd is a clean install so no garbage is transferred
