    Change SATA mode to AHCI from IDE

    Good morning,

    some time ago I installed Win 7 Pro. I haven't noticed that SATA mode is IDE. I wonder how I can switch now to AHCI. I have SSD and motherboard with SATA 3, so it would be shame to not do so.

    I found some instructions on the internet but none of them seems to work for me on Windows 10 Pro 64bit (registry change, safe mode ...). I always get "INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE" BSOD
    after I change mode to AHCI and try to boot PC again.

    Could I maybe use refresh or reset? Which could help me?

    Thank you very much

    Change SATA mode to AHCI from IDE

    I was able to change it now (I also had some issues with NICs so I decided to reinstall my PC but I wanted to keep my files, programs, settings .... ). Here is how:

    • Lunch application "setup.exe" from path "c:\$Windows.~WS\Sources\Windows\" (simply running upgrade to 10 again, but this time from windows 10)
    • After first reboot, change SATA mode to AHCI and let Windows finish upgrade
    • Everything should be fine now
    I am now running my disks in AHCI mode now and even don't have (so far) issues I had before.

    Unable to change SATA mode from IDE TO AHCI

    Changing IDE to AHCI Mode

    I learned through trial (and lots of errors) too.

    Before reading that, the only solution I knew of to switch over from IDE to AHCI mode was repartioning the drive, reformatting and reinstalling the OS with SATA mode set to AHCI in BIOS.

    An drive setup in IDE mode works fine as a slave in a system set to AHCI.
