Hdd regenerator says sata controller in ahci mode change ide mode in bios.

I had installed the regen to rest hdd, it cam up with this.
I went into bios and saw no way to change this, is under some other name?
this pc is a hp nx6310, with a hdd out of a acer laptop, i has a fresh install of win 7 and all updates drivers etc.

Also a curious thing with a dell 610, it was a great buy on ebay....
I came with no hdd and caddy the side of the case was cracked, I tried to use it with a new hdd, it would light up and stop, one dday I thought well lets gut this to use the parts, I hit the start button and it came on.... I though well ok then installed win 7, and all the goodies, with no restarts.
The next day went to boot it, it came up with no media, ie no hdd,
I then swapped the dell 600 to it and it did the same thing no see...

I put both hdds i the 600 and they both work, I then went and used a linux usb to go see the hdd, no prob, ok then, I installed linux to this hdd on the 610, it went in and said done, ok reboot, and once again the hdd is not seen?

Any thoughts?

Thanks to all!

Seems like a faulty board , you should try and format the hdd with another laptop .

Use it for a while , see if the problem persists , there are a few hdd's that does not run with hddat / hd re-generator , and some bios's do not support changing modes for hard disk's (particularly older model laptops & pcs).
Fault components does not necessarily mean its dead ,

they can work sometimes, and they wont work other times.

Either way , it is not recommended to use faulty devices :D.

But please do try to use the hdd on another laptop , or buy an external usb case for

your hdd's and see if they work normally as a usb storage device .
