Change from IDE to AHCI after installing Win7 64-bit IDE to AHCI
Hallo,

I have an older computer with a Gigabyte GA-M56S-S3 mainbord and a nForce560 chipset (revision A3), which I upgraded to Windows 7 64-bit SP1.
The installation defaulted to IDE drivers, probably because the BIOS was set to IDE and not AHCI.

Is there an easy way to upgrade to AHCI after the fact (I have no floppy drive), and is there a good reason to do so?
Also, are there AHCI drivers for Winsdows 7 64-bit for my chipset?

Thanks for any useful info.

Beste regards,
Bavo Bostoen
