Switch Windows 10 from RAID/IDE to AHCI operation

It’s not uncommon to find a system on which RAID drivers have been installed and something like the Intel Rapid Storage Technology package is handling storage devices, but where an SSD might require AHCI operation for more optimal performance or configurability. In these cases, there is in fact a way to switch operation from either IDE or RAID to AHCI within Windows 10 without having to reinstall.  Here’s how.
PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK!
  • Right-click the Windows Start Menu. Choose Command Prompt (Admin).
  • Type this command and press ENTER: bcdedit /set {current} safeboot minimal
  • Restart the computer and enter BIOS Setup (the key to press varies between systems).
  • Change the SATA Operation mode to AHCI from either IDE or RAID (again, the language varies).
  • Save changes and exit Setup and Windows will automatically boot to Safe Mode.
  • Right-click the Windows Start Menu once more. Choose Command Prompt (Admin).
  • Type this command and press ENTER: bcdedit /deletevalue {current} safeboot
  • Reboot once more and Windows will automatically start with AHCI drivers enabled.
That’s all there is to it!  Special thanks to Toobad here for outlining this procedure.
