My vaio doesn't have the option to chose achi or ide in it anymore, it used to before Sony updated the bios a year or two back.  Anyways I don't know how to change my start type to achi from within Windows 8.  Here are the relavent registry keys.  I didn't have a StartOverrude in storachi, any one have any ideas? Thanks
