    Default GA-EX58 and my AHCI Problem with Win7 64


    i just wanted to change my system from raid to ahci. And there starts the problem. After some tries i only get an install with ide settings in the bios. Reviced and error message at the boot (not from win7) and the system stopped. Now my first questions... what are the right settings for the best performance with my ssd's and ahci and how i can get them to run

    1. > Integrated Peripherals > ICH SATA Control Mode >
    2. > Integrated Peripherals > SATA Port0-3 Native Mode >
    3. > Integrated Peripherals > Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode >

    Link to the Biossettings

    What does these settings do and what should i chose?
    How can i install Win7 the right way, it only show me one of my 2 SSD's and i get a message that i can't install from Disk0 or 1.

    Thanks for your help!

    Intel X25-M's benefit quite well from being in AHCI mode. Gains in small file transfers and in sequential read of 4-10% approximately, depending on HW and SW factors, condition of flash blocks etc.

    You want the Intel ICH in AHCI mode, Ports 0-3 Native Mode Enabled and the SSD's on ports 0 and 1, DVD/CD/other optical drive on SATA_5.

    The third option you mentioned controlls the Gigabyte SATA ports (JMicron) and has no effect on things plugged into the ICH. If not using the purple ports you can disable the controller completely.

    Edit: Note thet RAID 0 would be the better solution of course. I don't see much point in owning two identical SSD's and not running them in a RAID config.
