Well it seems my drives are about to die. I have to do a reinstall. But it's ok. this allows me to double check my procedure tonight, as well as check if AHCI is actually supported by the disks. edit: N/M disks are healthy. AHCI is enabled. Check screenshot. I will be finishing up the procedure I used in a few hours. http://i.imgur.com/GgUod.png Does anyone have questions about this setup or things they want me to check before I finish?
