About to upgrade to an Evo 870 from a four year old SSHD. The PC is an old Dell 580 MT which has a SATA II Motherboard & is set to IDE right now.
My question is, can I switch to AHCI AFTER the 870 is cloned, but before I swap the present drive out, or must the swap to AHCI be done BEFORE cloning?
Thanks in advance for any advice!

Thanks for the Reply.
The Evo would be outside attached via a SATA III to USB 3.0 cable
I was intending to use the Samsung Migration Software for the cloning - is there a reason that Clonezilla would be better?
Not sure what you mean by "compatible mode".
