What does changing AHCI to IDE do?

How dangerous is this?

I know this is the disk controller setting...but I have no idea what it does?

I am having problems and it was suggested that I switch AHCI to IDE.

IDE(IDE mode). This lets the Sata drive run without any special drivers. You loose hot swap and native command queuing.

ACHI(Advanced Controller Host Interface) is for things like hot swap and native command queuing(more useful for servers).

OK ! :huh:

If life is not an option then why are we not given the option in the first place !
