    D525MW AHCI



      I have an Intel D525MW desktop board that I recently installed Windows 7 on. I have a SATA SSD that I am using for the only disk drive. Before I installed the OS, I set the BIOS SATA option to AHCI. I then proceded to install Windows 7. However, after the installation was complete and the Intel drivers were installed, my SSD appears to Windows as an IDE device. As far as I can tell there are no special drivers for the SATA interface or the SSD. Is it appropriate for Windows to access the drive as if it were an IDE drive? I would like the system to operate as natively as possible. THank you.
