Hello, I recently installed a P8Z77-M mobo from asus. The computer starts up fine but then after the "starting windows" screen appears it blue screens for a half second then restarts. After some research I found that a possible problem is that my sata is set to enhanced rather than compatible, however when I go into the bios I can only change the sata from IDE to Raid and that other one that I can't remember. I'm so lost someone save me.

What O/S is installed?

 

In any case...the hard drive setting options should be AHCI, IDE, RAID.  I set all my drives to IDE, I still see no advantage to using the AHCI setting (although others seem to think that it's manna from heaven).

I have windows 7 64 bit, and I see that I can change the hard drive options but those don't do anything for me I just need to know if it's possible to set my sata to compatibility mode rather than enhanced
