Nope, it will make your PC unbootable.

You need to switch the driver to AHCI first and then reboot into the bios and change the sata mode from IDE/Legacy/ATA to AHCI.

Which OS are you running?

For WIN7 this was the process. MS used to have a 1 click fixit button but I see they removed it.

I see, SATA/AHCI and PATA/IDE, will try this and give feedback. That is Win7. Thank you.
