SATA IDE Combined Mode. (When SATA IDE Combined Mode is set to disabled, SATA ports 1-4 work well in all three modes, while SATA ports 5-6 only work at RAID or AHCI mode).
I should have dug out the manual first. But should I set combined mode to enabled or disabled? Will this setting screw up my other SATA drives? I believe the SSD is on port 5 if I am not mistaken. So I'm guessing having this setting at disabled will ensure the SSD is set to AHCI?
Edit: No good. I changed the setting to AHCI, and the thing blue screens as soon as the Win 7 balls start rotating. Same thing with the RAID setting.
It did mention something about making sure to install AHCI drivers in your OS, but how do you do that if your drive isn't set to AHCI first? It's a catch-22.Edited by leebo - 8/18/12 at 11:54am
