I have installed 120 Gb 530 Series SSD into barebone system based on Celeron J1900 processor. But the system did not recognized it in AHCI mode, so I had to switch to IDE one to install Windows. My question is: is there any way to force my SSD to work in AHCI mode now, after Windows (8.1 SL) is installed?
What you saying may be possible but please be aware that such procedure is not supported by Intel as it implies in making changes in the registry of Windows* itself. If you want to retry a clean installation, please before you do it, make sure you update the BIOS and check with your OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) if they have any driver updates.
Thank you for the reply. But in my case it's impossible to get any support from the device manufacturer I couldn't even find out what the model of ATA controller (and it's definitely is Intel's one - PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_0F21&SUBSYS_0F218086&REV_0E) is installed on motherboard.
