The last and great tip we want to give you to gain a little extra performance boost is that you should enable AHCI mode. AHCI mode can help out greatly in performance for SSDs. Now, if you swap out an HDD for an SSD with the operating system cloned and THEN enable AHCI in the BIOS, you'll likely get a boot error / BSOD. The common question is, is there a solution for this?
To answer that question (and as we do safely with all modern chipsets) there is a way to safely enable AHCI mode. Here we go:
Open HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE / SYSTEM / CurrentControlset / Services
In the right field left click on "start" and go to Modify
In the value Data field enter "0" and click "ok"
Reboot rig and enter BIOS (typically hold "Delete" key while booting)
In your BIOS select "Integrated Peripherals" and On Chip PATA/SATA Devices. Now change SATA Mode from IDE to AHCI. You now boot into Windows, and the OS will recognize AHCI and install the devices. Now the system needs one more reboot and voila... enjoy the improved SSD performance.
