    Changing RAID to AHCI without reinstalling Windows 10


    Hi there,


    I have a Dell XPS 13 7390, x64, Microsoft Windows 10 Home, IntelR CoreTM i7-10510U CPU @ 1.80GHz, 2304 Mhz, 4 core, bios: 1.4.0, latest version, 16,0 GB. I need to change my setting from RAID to AHCI, but want to avoid a new installation of Windows 10 preinstalled.


    I found two possible solutions, but I'd like to receive more help:


    • msconfig > Safe boot > "minimal" here, alsohere which I tried but caused me a big issue with local account it simply didn't recognize my password even though I'm 100% sure I was typing it right -- tried with screen keybord as well


    • regedit > various setting changes as I found here.

    I wonder if there is someone here who tried one of these and can share his/her own experience?

    I was going to try the second one, but I've never tried to edit the register.


    Plus, I don't see the exact same option showed in those tutorials *, so I don't want to mess it all up!


    thanks!


    * MY DIFFERENCES:


    • Steps 3-5: on HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\iaStorV my "Start" value is already 0 instead of 3


    • Steps 9-11: same already 0 instead of 3


    • Step 12: it seems from here that it should be already in 0 for me is 3 instead

    :)

    AHCI to RAID without reinstalling Windows in WIN10

    Registry tweaks are available for changing from AHCI to RAID without reinstalling Windows for earlier versions of Windows.

    However, the edits (such at https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/922976 ) do not apply to Windows 10.

    Anybody know the registry edits that work for Windows 10?
