Putting ssd from laptop into desktop computer no boot??

  1. #11

    Ok fine, how do I know if the Windows 7 was installed AHCI or IDE beforehand?? Because I can't remember...

    In my registry, both start values in MSAHCI and PCIIDE are 0.

    **Does this mean that I did install windows 7 with AHCI setting? It is possible I just didn't switch it in the bios and that's why I am currently in IDE mode.. but how to check what it was on when I installed windows 7 - which I installed years ago..

    Right now I have a spinning disk hard drive in IDE mode in the bios.. but I will be cloning this to the new SSD.. Which needs to be in AHCI mode..

    Based on what I see in the registry am I all set and simply need to switch the setting to AHCI in the bios when I get my new SSD..

    the motherboard of the computer the SSD is going into is Asus M4A77TD
