Can't get install to work with 1st gen sata drive in AHCI, only IDE RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Installed the Vail refresh a few months ago, using a WD blue as my system drive (I'm pretty sure in IDE mode, as I don't think I changed it from the default). I decided to take that drive out, and re-install using a 1st gen sata I drive in AHCI. The system kept hanging at "preparing the computer for first time use". It took about 4 hours trying different combinations for me to succeed with the install, only after I switched back to IDE mode.

    Not sure if it's a bug, but I thought I'd let everyone know.
