    Windows 7 - How to enable AHCI mode on an existing install

    DeanC

      Hi folks,

       

      I got my Intel X25-M G2 80GB earlier this week and I'm struggling to get up to speed on all the technicalities of drive performance. I've read quite a few threads today about TRIM support being available in the latest FW, but it requires AHCI mode to be enabled.

       

      I didn't "install" windows 7 on this drive, rather I used Acronis True Image to clone from my raptor over to this drive. AHCI mode is disabled in the BIOS at the moment, so I am wondering if I enable it will that mean windows will automatically switch to that drive and therefore I'll have TRIM support?

       

      If not, what is the process for enabling it

       

      Thanks
