    I didnt realise that until my last computer build when I used ACHI for the first time .... and they do show after but very hard to see on a quick booting system

    A way to see is hit the F12 key

    Yes when using AHCI or raid, hdds or ssds will no longer show up in bios except for hdd boot order. You should see them doing boot up in the AHCI rom and also Raid rom if using raid. Also if your using the Marvell or Jmicron controller in ahci or raid, hdds and ssds should appear in their roms doing startup.

    Ok, I'm convinced. Be helpful is there were discussed in the manual. Now, I'm wondering why this mobo/i7 2600K combo is taking as long to boot as my previous 790X/Phenom II x4 2.8MHz set, with a lot less on it and a supposedly faster SSD (Plextor MB3 Pro vs. Corsair Series 3). Otherwise, runs well.

    ok, this reply wont help you at all but the way I got a lighting boot up was to dump this motherboard and go to z77

    But this may help .... only USB devices ( including passthrough cables etc ) to be connected at boot are your mouse and keyboard .. also turn of usb legacy devices in mobo

    Taking the memory up to 1800 or 2133 seems to help start up time, as does hibernating instead of total shut down. My USB devices are a mouse, two printers (off at start up) and a long cable, usually with nothing on it at start up. I went for the mobo because it was $94 after rebate + a little over $200 for the i7 2600K, the result of a manager who was willing to deal after a poorly phrased ad. I might have been better off waiting until the IB chips come out to upgrade to a Z77, because that would have allowed using my gpu's PCI-E 3.0 capapbilities. But really, this thing moves pretty well for the price - and is cool and barely audible.
