Windows 10: Enable AHCI in Windows 8 and Windows 10 after Installation
Thanks for getting back to me I did try to send you a private message but not enough posts yet.
The guide I'm referring to makes no registry changes.
Solved Attn. SSD owners - Enabling AHCI mode AFTER Windows 10 installation. - Windows 10 Forums
I haven't tried that way, but it should work.
I wonder if doing this will help getting my external eSATA drive re-detected by the SMART monitoring process? After updating my drivers Disk Management and Belarc Advisor both say SMART is fine, but Diskeeper 15 and Western Digital Lifeguard says SMART not available for that drive, weird I know.
BTW is this basically the same as in W7?
This has changed a little bit from the Windows 7 method.
Using AHCI would be better than IDE if all hard drives are connected via SATA and not IDE.
Thanks Shawn and a Merry Christmas. I tried it and could see no difference except an extra item on the final boot screen - CD/DVD Rom no media or something similar.
You're welcome, and Merry Christmas Peter.
The instructions were concise, well illustrated and best of all...spot on. This was driving me crazy and after searching the Net came across this tutorial. The only difference I saw with Windows 10 build 10586 is that the drivers were installed so quickly that it went straight into Windows without a delay. I never did see an installing drivers window. But..AHCI is active and normal and a lesson learned about BIOS settings before doing a clean install of Windows 10. Thanks so much for the excellent information.
A Merry Christmas to you and all of the users visiting!

I'm glad that it could help JJO, and welcome to Ten Forums.
I hope you had a Merry Christmas as well.
You know I did this in 7 and completely forgot to do the regedits in my 2 10 systems before altering the BIOS. Fortunately, after gingerly booting into Safe Mode w/Networking in each I found they were already set as indicated.....miracles do occur.
It was a Christmas miracle.
