I have an older Gigabyte mobo, still on SATA2. There were 3 settings in the mobo that deals with IDE vs AHCI, I changed them all to AHCI. I also notice in the BIOS where it says "IDE Master 0", my SSD isn't listed there, it just says None. When I rebooted, there was an additional post screen that says it's searching for AHCI devices, then it says it didn't find any. I installed windows 8 anyway and it worked. I used AS SSD benchmark to confirm that it is running AHCI and aligned properly. So, according to that, I'm running on AHCI, but everytime my computer boots up I still get that same message: searching for AHCI devices and not finding any. What's wrong here?
