    Default EP45-DS4 SATA driver

    Hello

    I have a dual boot PC, for the orginal XP I copied the SATA RAID/AHCI driver onto floppy and installed before XP.
    When it came to Vista 64, I forgot all about it and just installed Vista 64. Now I am not used RAID or AHCI mode so does it affect performance in anyway not installing this driver?

    nope...having AHCI mode off doesnt make a difference, only allows u to use hotswap for ESATA.

    Ya, Normal IDE/PATA/EIDE is fine unless you plan to have to hotswap or want to use RAID
