Thought I had set BIOS SATA to ACHI
I installed Win 7 PRO on a SSD with Bios set to run SATA as IDE

If i change the setting to ACHI what is the worst that could happen?

Also have a second SATA HDD drive. New set up don't have any apps loaded yet but had just completed the "How-To: Optimize Your Windows Profile and Media Storage with a SSD" (Maximum pc article).

I believe if you change it to AHCI nothing will happen. But, if you had it set to AHCI before installing the OS, it would run in AHCI mode. Either way, you have nothing to lose. You can always enter the BIOS and change it back.

Be sure you change to AHCI in Windows, too. All you need to do is change one registry setting, reboot, go into the BIOS, and change it in the BIOS and everything should be peachy. OCZ put up a tutorial a bit ago at http://bit.ly/l8ixyD
