IDE TO AHCI??? IS THERE A WAY? :( - setujaq - 02-16-2012

HI! its me again lolz... thank you all for always helping me out.... here's my problem... I did not use AHCI when I install my new windows 7 os and I used IDE, is there a way to re do it? because when i switch it to AHCI from efi something lolz, it restarted and show missing operating system... by the way, I already installed windows 7 and activated it, can i re install everything again if that is the only fix, my Seagate HDD won't format either so i am not sure what to do... thanks a lot again.... Smile
ohhh by the way, should i leave it IDE or should i switch it to ahci... sorry for being so ignorant.. I tried my best to research both of them but I still don't get it... thanks again...
