    Default help installing ACHI,ASRock X79 Extreme6/GB

    I'm building a new PC install on my ASRock x79 Extreme6/GB Mobo, and have new intel 520 SSD and a seagate momentusXT hybrid drives w/ Windows 7 Pro 64-bit SP1.....Do I have to do anything in the bios to setup ACHI? do i need to download and install Intel's Rapid Storage Technology Driver after installing windows? This is an initial install, all components are brand new.

    Thanks, any hints about installing a SSD/hybrid drive would be appreciated, if any.

    Thanks, I have 2 more questions. Sorry this is my first setup where I had more than one hard drive/SSD.

    1. Does it matter which port the seagate SataIII drive goes into? Both groups are set to AHCI, ....I have 5 SATAIII ports, "SATA 3 Mode":SATA3_0, SATA3_1; ASMedia SATA3 Mode": SATA3_A0, SATA3_A1, SATA3_A2. I know the SSD with OS goes into SATA3_0, but I'm unsure if it matters where I put the Seagate HDD, or if one slot is better than another performance-wise.

    2. Should I install just my SSD, then install windows, then add the Seagate drive later? or I can install both drives and then install windows?

    thanks for the help
