    I had the same issue. When I enable AHCI mode in BIOS and Install my ADATA SX6000Lite at the same time, my system must freeze in black screen or Logo. 
    Any suggestion for me. Thanks!

    Basically you have to re-install a fresh copy of windows after you switch from raid to achi in the bios. There may be a method of doing the switch by editing registry values without doing a fresh install of windows. But that can be very tricky and if done wrong it can make your drive unbootable. What I would suggest is first make an image backup  of your current drive on an external drive before you do anything in case things go wrong. 
  • @The_OrmigoWrong. It is not necessary to reinstall windows. Do this:
    a) press windows + r, type msconfig, go to system boot, enable safe boot and restart windows.
    b) then, uninstall and delete this driver:

    c) then, restart windows, access the bios, go to the main tab, press ctrl + s and change the sata mode to ahci.
