Solved How do I set an SSD to AHCI on an ASUS M5A97 R 2.0 mobo

Acer / Aspire 5742

Specs: Windows 7 Home Premium, 2.399 GHz / 5814 MB
I'm just doing a build. It's my first build in a long time so I'm kind of lost. Everything has gone fine, it boots OK, and recognizes everything. I'm ready to install Win 7 now. It's my first time using an SSD and I've read a bit about them. So b4 I install Windows I want to make sure the SSD is set to AHCI and not IDE. When I boot and go to BIOS on the Mobo, I see no SATA controllers of any kind. There is just a listing of my SSD drive recognized as the correct model. I'm in the Asus M5A97 Advanced BIOS mode, not the EZ mode. And I have checked and re-checked and can't find it. The Boot menu just lists the SSD drive as it's the only drive I have installed for now. Clicking on it just allows an enable \ disable option only, no choices for Raid, IDE or AHCI. No SATA control menu or option. Does anyone know how to access it on this mobo? I want to do it b4 installing Windows.
