I was trying to install Windows 7 x64. The AHCI drivers should already be present in the installation package. The BIOS was updated to the latest version yesterday so the defaults (and optimized defaults) were set, no change in situation. To be honest not the biggest fan of reinstalled the OS once again (this would be the third time), this is my fathers PC and he needs it. Right now the computer is running fine on IDE, just obviously not as optimal as it could on AHCI. Doesn't anyone find it strange that the drive is not listed in SATA Channel list (picture 1) but seems to work? And that it is recognized in the submenu od the Channel list? (Picture 2)

Hi guys, I'm hoping someone here can help me out. I have an older PC, a Shuttle S P35P2 Pro (Prima Series) that I'd like to upgrade with one of your SSD drives. I bought a Crucial BX500 120 GB SSD. Now, I want it to run as optimal as possible so I'm trying to get it to work with AHCI. And here the problems begin. 1. The drive is connected to the motherboad along with a SATA DVDRW. 2. In BIOS both run on IDE 3. Only the DVDRW is recognized by BIOS. Picture here: http://shrani.si/f/i/XP/2mQzVTNQ/20190116185401.jpg The SSD should be listed under Serial ATA Channel 1. But for some reason there's nothing there. If I chose that Channel I do however get all the info about the SSD. Seen here: http://shrani.si/f/44/oQ/j4WGPGk/20190116193333.jpg . How is this possible? The drive is not listed, but BIOS seems to know a lot about it. The drive also shows up during POST without issue. Pictured on Channel 1: http://shrani.si/f/2B/UB/2e98hZHR/20190116185352.jpg The only mention of the SDD within BIOS that I could find is on the hard drive selection menu, listing the order in which the hard drive(s) boot. There, the SSD has the same name as during POST. But all this as confusing as it is, I was able to install Windows on the drive without issue and everything works. However, when I try to set the IDE setting in BIOS to AHCI, suddenly the drive does not work anymore. I cannot get Windows to install onto it, this is the error I get: http://i.imgur.com/WPzuLhU.jpg (nevermind the size, it's not my picture). And during bootup only the DVDRW is apparently recognized since before telling me that there's no drive the system tires to "boot from AHCI CDROM". I've even tried swapping SATA cables for brand new ones, without success. The motherboard is updated to the latest (old) BIOS. So does anyone know what could be the problem? Why can't I get this drive to with in AHCI mode? Crucial has my Shuttle motherboard listed on their site, saying the SSD is compatible. This part is 100% compatible with SP35P2 PRO.
