MAXIMUS X HERO. Can't select IDE mode of the SATA controller.

Previously, there was such an option, but after updating BIOS on 2203 it disappeared, now there is only AHCI and Intel RST. I have a boot disk that only works normally in IDE mode. I can boot, but it will work slowly and only IDE mode changes the situation.

If so, can I find out with which particular BIOS version such changes have occurred and why was this done at all?

I got what I wanted by switching SATA to Intel RST mode :rolleyes:

it's unusual that you say performance is lower in AHCI mode over IDE, I though they both used the same bus line?

This is System Repair Disc from Windows 7. To restore the image of the system partition, I booted from it. But it always, even on previous platforms, copies very slowly if the controller operates in AHCI mode 😞
