    Problem Re: HOWTO: enable AHCI mode after installing Windows

    IMPORTANT FOR ALL: left write cache disabled on the backup hard disks if you have one or more!

    Re: HOWTO: enable AHCI mode after installing Windows

    Notice this thread is at the very top of the page? That's called a "Sticky". So I stuck it.

    I thought that would be a good place for this dicussion.

    Welcome to PcPer.com by the way!

    Re: HOWTO: enable AHCI mode after installing Windows

    Hi to all, I just had the same problem with my new MB ASUS P5B-SE 975P (BIOS vers. 0709), I follow the steps in the first topic but didn't help so:

    I have integrated the Jmicro and Intel AHCI drivers into the WinXP istallation CD with nLite, installing windows: no help (HDD not recognized)

    I reinstall everything using the floppy created with the 32-bit Floppy Configuration Utility for Intel Matrix Storage Manager, press F6 when required, no help (HDD not recognized)

    I connect the HDD to the jMicro controller, set the Intel SATA to AHCI, start windows to install the AHCI drivers but in the device manager were found two new hardware, a second Jmicro controller and a PCI device, there was no way to install their drivers so, also this operation was aborted and back to IDE configuration reconnecting the HDD to SATA 1 port and Intel controller to IDE.

    All this operations were done with the Jmicro always set to IDE in the BIOS, I always play with the Intel SATA settings.

    Any suggestions?

    Tks a lot in advance

    System;
    Hardware;
    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" ONLY FOR THE DRIVES WHERE YOU WORK. Because the cache is needed to speed up the disk operations, while you don't need speed in a backup disk.

    In the backup drives disable it (do not mark). Because with the cache enabled if anything happens (system block, power-down, accidental reset, ecc...) you will lose data ALSO IN THE BACKUP DISK!

    Bye.

    These two sentences seem to be contradictory.

    You find this in the first topic as 4th operation:

    Change the setting for the on board Intel controller to AHCI, save and exit BIOS.
    Boot into Windows
    So, how can you "follow the steps in the first topic" if you "made all the operations with the Jmicro set to IDE"? At this point of the procedure (After loading the .reg file) you should change the settings in the BIOS as "AHCI", not ide, BEFORE letting Windows start.

    Does this help?

    Re: HOWTO: enable AHCI mode after installing Windows

    Hi drywood, sorry but maybe I just didn't clear explain in deep:



    I mean that the settings in the item number one were changed, before to load Windows, from IDE to AHCI, the setting in the number two were left to IDE, also because if I set the Jmicro to AHCI, my DVD burner disappear under Windows

    The #1 item is the Intel controller, about the JMB363 controller was just mentioned to connect the HDD, not to change its settings, am I right?

    Tks in advance

    Re: HOWTO: enable AHCI mode after installing Windows

    Doesn't work for me, I get a "strange" BSOD (Lots of really small text, and immediate restart, rather than a normal one with large text that you have time to read) during Windows startup.

    Windows XP pro 32 bit.
    GA-P35-DS3L Motherboard, ICH9(I don't know if R or not), Jmicron (Neither have an options in BIOS)
    BIOS F6.
    I updated to F8a and am going to try again... I don't thik it will make a difference though.

    Help would be appreciated.

    X ANDYWARRIOR:

    Now I understood. So you have two controllers on the motherboard. I think it's normal that setting the Jmicro to AHCI will disable the DVD. But maybe that the latest DVD drives can work in SATA mode.

    X ANDYWARRIOR AND DRAGONSHADOW:

    You could try to add ALSO the registry keys wrote by Peter Shilkin in the page 3 of this discussion.

    Otherwise, my knowledge finish here, and you could ask to Ned Slider.

    Bye.

    Re: HOWTO: enable AHCI mode after installing Windows

    Hi
    I just bought a dell vostro 1400 and installled XP pro with SP2. Before that i did not include SATA drivers in the CD and so after installing XP when i try to switch back to AHCI XP does not load, but it works properly in ATA. This post is extremely helpful but i would like to know if it would work on my laptop. I have a Intel core 2 duo T 7500 2Ghz processor. I am not aware of the chipset. Could you tell me how to look for it ?
