Hi, my current os win7 is installed on to a SATA SSD, i am planning to migrate by cloning a disk image and recovering it to the 970 Evo, i have read some conflicting information Samsung driver installation PDF suggests that raid mode in the pch should be disabled but i have read elsewhere it has to be enabled to get the full performance from the PCIe lanes? can anyone tell me what settings in the system bios i need to change, before i do this, current system disk boots in legacy MBR mode, so that will also require to be converted to uefi /gpt and of course will need to be bootable
