I am installing windows onto a single HDD. When I had it set up in RAID 0, obviously the SATA mode was set to RAID, when I had an SSD installed it was set to AHCI. I am wondering which is best to set it to when it's just on one HDD. AHCI or ATA? What is the difference? I'm leaning towards AHCI but I don't really know the difference.
