    Angry Rampage Formula 3 - AHCI

    Hi, I would like to know if i am right, I installed a new SSD.
    I updated the driver, my present OS, recognize as well the SSD all Are fine.
    In Bios I swapped the 6gbs as AHCI, rebooted and OS installed new driver.
    Updated also the firmware on ssd

    I have a ssd and 3 other sata hard drive which i doesn't want RAID.

    Is it possible to do this, run os on a ssd in ahci and other drive running ide enhanced sata
    I want be sure when I will install the new hard drive with Windows 7 that will not occur BSOD after

    Please can we confirm that also ?

    ACHI does not have RAID, RAID however have functions for ACHI. supported HDD gets NCQ, when ports are set to ACHI.
    The only way to do is, if you got a board with SATA ports running on different controllers, other wise it's not possible to set SSD to ACHI and there rest of your HDD to IDE Enhanced SATA.

    Welcome to the forums !
    I don't understand why you want to give up the performance you get with AHCI for your HDD's. You have already installed the AHCI driver for your Sata controller so there should not be any problems in installing the other 3 sata drives. Raid is something you have to initialize, it doesn't set itself up.
