Thread: AHCI mode on EP45-DS3R

    Default AHCI mode on EP45-DS3R

    I enabled AHCI mode before I installed windows. Now everytime I boot up the computer takes 5-10 seconds to load the AHCI BIOS. Is this natural? Or can I somehow eliminate this.

    Can you just change back to IDE in the bios, or will that require a reinstall of Windows?

    For sure? I cannot remember.

    I do know you cannot do things the other way, like have it set on IDE then switch to AHCI. That requires some more things then just a switch in the BIOS

    I think you would be ok and the AHCI Driver would just not be enabled/used. But if you do try, and need any files on your C drive back them up first
