    Just be careful with installing drivers even if from the source like Intel read the release notes carefully, make sure it matches your chipset family. Always try the old right click search online for drivers in device manager. Wrong driver render system unbootable, then will be back to square one.
    That hardy ever works, search for drivers online....blah.....Installing wrong driver sure can mess up the computer big time that I won't argue with one bit, but, like I have been saying for last hour DO YOUR IMAGE BACKUP 1ST then you can play around all you want....and not worry about nut'n. :)

    Your welcome Gary, i had a ASUS PC as old as yours and i always had it set to AHCI from the start when bought. It came with Windows 7 64bit i upgraded to Windows 8 then 8.1. PC i have now is newer it came with Windows 8.1 Pro and i upgraded to Windows 10 Pro 64bit again always set to AHCI. Yes, as said by another here it's a good chance you need to set it to AHCI then clean install Windows 10 again, but can be ways without this process, as i have seen.

    The IRST drivers usually should be preinstalled before the OS. With my PC Windows 10 had the new SATA Controller drivers (IRST Drivers). Also need to make sure have Chipset driver software installed.Pretty sure it's all Intel on your system.

    As far as what you saw from 250GB now showing 232GB same with mine and explained by WordMan here. If have a lot of software might of needed to think 500GB SSD then or put some software on the HDD. As far as games they will definitely run better on a SSD too. I have 2 SSD, 1 for OS and 1 for games, then a HDD for backup.

    Let me know if still want to tackle AHCI, but as i said and others it will work o.k. without it, to me if you can do it i would, up to you.
    I tied those RST drivers from Intel and I got a pop up saying my system did not support them.

    Extract the zip file for these drivers, found as IRST be 2 folders 64bit and 32 bit whichever yours is, can put them onto a flash drive, go to device manager open IDE ATA /ATPI select correct controller, select update drivers from properties. Select have the disk or let me choose, then go to location where you extracted those drivers.

    I made the mistake once putting wrong ones in, no boot, no restore, no recovery worked for me then, why i said be careful do not know if had system image or wanted to do a clean install.

    Try what jds63 is suggesting 1st......when I log on to intel, they keep checking MY system. Also I would need to know the file date and version of your controller installed now. I can't see your info in your device manager. Your too far away.

    So after you messed up your drivers, you could not boot to a DVD or USB device?? That seems strange.....

    Yep, would not fix it no matter what i tried, repair disc, refresh, system restore. Was wrong Controller drivers in wrong place...oops at the time, my bad. As i had to reset, did a clean install at the time anyway.Turned out OS had the correct one.
