    • change sata mode to ahci

      HI,

      I recently installed omv on an old e350m1 board, but i accidentalyy left the sata mode in iDE, instead of AHCI.

      couple of questions:

      -Is there any real world benefit to AHCi for a small nas with only 2 users max?

      -Can i just change it in the bios, some say i might have to reinstall grub, or even everything?

      thanks!

      E350M1, usb system disk, 1xWD40EFRX, 1xST500LTO12

      I cloned my USB stick system disk to a small intel SSD (clonezilla with option -k1 to expand the partition), then changed the sata mode to AHCI, and everything still seems to work fine.......

      if i goofed up, or could have done something different/better i would love to hear about it!
