Re: HOWTO: enable AHCI mode after installing Windows
Thanks for this post. It worked! AHCI adds 10 more seconds for booting, but the load time appears to feel a tad faster. Maybe it is a placebo effect.
+1 on updating your tip to include "All this process worth nothing if you forget at the end to go to device manager, double klick your hard-drive(s) under "disk drivers", go to "policies" tab and mark "Enable write caching for this disk" (I recommend adding this to the guide)"
Presumably this means using the onboard HDD cache?
