It is set to RAID. It says SATA Controller Mode RAID. That's right, right?


No it's wrong you need to change that option to AHCI.

It's a configuration option tat should match the setup you have one isn't better than the other.
When you have more than one Hard Disk installed you can set the Hard Disk controller to work in a RAID setup according to the Raid level the controller can do.

The Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) is a technical standard defined by Intel that specifies the operation of Serial ATA interface...

The options was set to Raid most likely because you did a BIOS reset.
