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!

Thank you, for your reply.
Sorry I typed in haste, terrible to read.

This is the thing I have yet to understand the battered dell 610, did not even turn on when it arrived, blinked and died, so how did it come back to life for me have loaded an os....?

Then having seen the hdd to load the os, it then became blind, until I said here have another os, and it ate it. And could be used until I did a restart Only to be blind again?

Both hdds work in the dell 600

God help me but I have become the go to guy for good folks with whacked puters, simply because I won't throw them against a wall in rage.

Thanks guys and gals for being there!
