    OK, I looked in the Tutorial section and found this and it seemed to have worked maybe

    Hello everybody. What started out as a request for guidance ended up with me solving my own problem. Thought I may as well pass on my findings anyway just in case it helps somebody else in the same situation.

    So over the weekend, through a series of upgrades, I successfully hopped from Vista to Windows 10 Professional 64-bit. But, as is not unusual, I again managed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. With my new SSD loaded with Win 10 goodness, I realised I was still operating it in IDE mode. A confident dip into the BIOS to enable AHCI mode resulted in Windows then failing to start because it no longer recognised the boot drive! I'm guessing the AHCI driver wasn't loaded during installation since the mode wasn't in use. So back to IDE mode and a surf around for solutions. Plenty around pertaining to Vista, Win 7 and Win 8 involving changing registry values but nothing tangible for Win 10. However I found this alternative Win 8 workaround which I can confirm works equally well in Windows 10. I realise I'm probably teaching my Grandmother to suck eggs with this post here but perhaps somebody as equally technophobic as me, may find it useful. This is what I did:

    1. Run Command Prompt as Admin
    2. Invoke a Safe Mode boot with the command: bcdedit /set {current} safeboot minimal
    3. Restart the PC and enter your BIOS during bootup.
    4. Change from IDE to AHCI mode then Save & Exit.
    5. Windows 10 will launch in Safe Mode.
    6. Right click the Window icon and select to run the Command Prompt in Admin mode from among the various options.
    7. Cancel Safe Mode booting with the command: bcdedit /deletevalue {current} safeboot
    8. Restart your PC once more and this time it will boot up normally but with AHCI mode activated.
    9. Bask in the reflected glory of being a total Windows 10 God
    But I have a safely remove hardware in my systray:

    Below is my Device manager, maybe I have to do more??
