AHCI changes disks

Hello.

I swapped out the disks to SSD now, but when i change to AHCI from IDE in BIOS, the disks shows as sdb, sdc etc and the USB stick is sda when i try to install.
Change back to IDE in BIOS, the disks shows as they should when i try install. Does anyone know why it is like that?

That's specific to your computer, change to AHCI, the drive id's will not prevent from installing properly on the hard disk as block devices uuid's are used instead of sda, sdb id's
