Thread: Enable AHCI without reinstalling XP?

    Default Enable AHCI without reinstalling XP?

    Is there anyway to do this with the GA-P35-DS3?

    Until I replace it, I'd like to be able to use AHCI mode for hotswapping.

    TIA

    I've seen that, unfortunately it doesn't work with the GA-P35-DS3P, I think because it uses a different Intel vendorID

    I would boot some Linux Live-Distro from USB and use 'lspci' to list the vendor/pci ids of the AHCI device (the id is different than in the IDE mode).

    Intel vendorID is vendorID. It is the deviceID that is model-specific.

    Not yet, it's on my "to do" list for the weekend (which the way things are going, means it won't get done!!)

    I managed to switch over to the AHCI drivers for my X48T-DQ6 simply by selecting the ICH9R AHCI drivers in device manager, then rebooted, entered BIOS to switch controller on to AHCI mode, then booted into Windows. Hardware detection asked me to reboot again, so I did, and everything was fine. Device manager showed the disk controllers to be running AHCI. I hot-plugged a SATA drive to make sure too.
