    Google hits on this error message seem to be clustered around AHCI driver issues - I see brummyfan has you on that track. Will follow your issue with interest as time permits.
    Yes, I definitely got the impression it could be a driver issue, but I was not having success trying new ones. However now it is solved, Yay!!! Even though Device Manager told me I had the best drivers installed when I told it to check for updates automatically, I still felt it was a driver problem, so I went ahead and instead told it to "browse my computer for driver software". There were two results; the existing Intel driver and another called "Standard SATA AHCI Controller". So I picked the Standard one instead and now everything works great and I am able to optimize. The driver is Microsoft 06-21-2006 version 10.0.10586.0.

    Thank you all for the help. It feels great to have everything working as it should. Well, almost...I have a slight problem with Windows Defender that I will post in the appropriate forum after this.

    Yes, thank you all very much. And I already have the Defender problem solved as well thanks to a tutorial by Brick.

    I would have thought running "winsat formal" would have fixed it.

    I know what you mean and (I must admit) it's one I may quickly suggest as a quick shot to try, but usually only when the Optimize Drives console is showing SSD when it's actually HDD or vice versa. Seemed like OPs drive was showing correctly though in this case.

    Actually, I only learned about that one from everyone here so I thought that one might have basically been the fix for it.

    Yes, I had tried the winsat formal command out of desperation, but it did not work. I believe your assessment of it is correct, that it will help to correctly identify hardware if it has been misidentified. But as you say, in this case the hardware was already identified correctly; it was the driver that wasn't compatible.

    I'm glad I didn't have the problem when I upgraded from 2 x 750GB Western Digital Black Label 7200RPM 2.5" HDD's to 2x2TB Samsung 850Pro SSD's. I had Intel RST RAID 12.9 installed with 10240 but Intel RST RAID 12.9 was no longer working and even after I install, it does not show up on the system when I upgraded to 10586. I installed the SSD's during 10586.14.
