    Default X58-UD3R + AHCI + Intel SSD 160gb G2

    Hi guys (hopefully Lsdmeasap can answer me asap) :D

    Just want to make sure I did the right process installing Windows 7 on my SSD
    1. Plug in my Intel SSD to a blue Sata 2 port
    2. BIOS > Integrated Peripherals > ICH SATA Control Mode - set to ACHI
    3. Reboot and let AHCI to install
    4. Boot to Windows 7 disk
    5. Install on designated Intel SSD
    Is this the right procedure? Is AHCI better than IDE for SSD ?

    Regards

    Is there a method I can check if my SSD is running on AHCI ? I think i googled someone said to check in regedit?

    Also, do i need to install any of the following ? And is it ok to install it after i've windows installed ?

    Intel SATA Preinstall driver
    (For AHCI / RAID Mode)
    Note: Press F6 during Windows setup to read from floppy.

    GIGABYTE SATA2 Driver 1.17.59.0

    If you already have windows 7 installed on your SSD and it is connected to one of the intel ports you can switch to AHCI
