    Hmmmph!....didn't work! system crashed when I put in new drive in hot swap bay. But, as I said it was already on 0 value for AHCI in registry and I think it needs [?!] the drivers I put in XP put into the system for Win 7...no?! How?! The BIOS was always set on AHCI, as I use it and it works on my XP disk. The settings don't change when I boot to the Win 7 disk. What to try next?!

    0 is enable, 1 is disable (FYI)

    You can't make these changes in XP and switch modes, it's not that easy and what was mentioned on the previous page only applies to windows 7 or vista.

    Ya you can use MAC, you need a edited BIOS though i think.

    Again you missed what I was saying or I said it incorrectly. That was ALL with the WIN 7...not with XP... The Win 7 is already installed and I tried the changes to the registry. Is there something else that needs to be done?! Did I have to do something when installing Win 7. [forget XP, this has nothing to do with XP]....Perhaps you don't remember the architecture of my computer. I have a swap bay and if I put in the Win 7 disk the computer is Win 7, if I put in the XP disk it is XP,...etc. I'm talking Windows 7 only that I can not get it to AHCI. It works fine [after much trouble!] in XP being able to swap drives.

    Ahh, sorry, not sure what happened :)

    To enabled RAID/AHCI/IDE all you need to do is make the following changes in the registry
    Enable switching between all IDE/AHCI/RAID modes by changing "Start" Values in these keys to 0
    Code:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci\Start
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Pciide\Start  
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\iaStorV\Start
    What you might need to do is uninstall any Intel AHCI or RAID Drivers first if you have any installed, if so remove them and reboot, then make the changes. That's a might, I have this enabled with and without them installed and have no issues.

    As mentioned all but the RAID one already were [and remain] on zero. RAID was on 3 and changed to 0 then back to 3 - in all cases it crashed. I'd not know where to look to find and remove any AHCI drivers. Would I not have to then re-install them. In XP I had to add the drivers during the initial installation, I'm confused as what I need to do with Win 7. You say ONLY make these registry changes? They were O for AHCI adn IDE and I'm not currently using RAID......

    I note that the registry entry for ahci has a sub entry...is this needed to be changed in any way?
    I did find the drivers, but you'd have to be very exact.....what state would the registry entries have to be before I deleted the ahci driver [and why would I do that - and how would it be replaced]? When I first installed Win 7 the BIOS was set at ahci enabled and has remained that way, as I mostly use the XP OS disk and the swap works fine now, after many problems I don't remember the exact nature of. However, in Win 7 it collapses completely when I insert any new disk. Also not clear is if I need to have all three at zero or not. As I mentioned before, the first two were at zero, only the raid one was not, it was at 3 and is again now [after having tried zero, with no effect - and i do not now use any RAID]. Please inform. Thanks.

    Win 7 has default AHCI and RAID Drivers, I only mentioned removing them as a possible need in case you maybe added Intel ones during the install.

    Only the mentioned keys need changed, which you have done. You can have all three set to zero or not, it only matters if you want to switch between them all.

    Where is the image path key showing for driver location for the MsAHCI registry entry, that is what you are trying to use now right? It should say "System32/Drivers/msahci.sys", if so go there and be sure the driver is actually in that location, if it's not we'll need to add it to that folder.

    I added NO drivers during the install

    So, even if I'm not using RAID it is OK to have it at zero? Why is it at 3 now?

    Yes, that is the path shown and it is there; however when I put in a disk the whole system crashes. I have re-installed all [I think] intel drivers relevant...I don't know what more to do....

    No Intel drivers needed, and they may mess things up. Those changes are for the default MS drivers, as I mentioned before not sure if Intel ones would mess that up or not.

    did you follow this guide to the letter?? ive done this three times now on clean installs and it works everytime,just boot up into windows in ide mode,then adjust all the things in the guide and reboot,enter bios select ahci for both options in bios and save/exit.then when windows loads up you will see the hardware icon scan for drivers for ahci and install them and thats it

    1.Exit all Windows-based programs.
    2.Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
    3.If you receive the User Account Control dialog box, click Continue.
    4.Locate and then click the following registry subkey:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesM sahci

    5.In the right pane, right-click Start in the Name column, and then click Modify.
    6.In the Value data box, type 0, and then click OK.
    7.On the File menu, click Exit to close Registry Editor.

    After this you’ll have to restart your computer, go to BIOS and enable AHCI. When you log in to Windows again, you’ll notice the installation of drivers for AHCI. Another restart will be required to finish the driver installation.

    for xp you have to extract a inf file i think from intel storage manager and put it into winxp system32 folder,ill try and find the guide i used for xp,it was lsdme who found and posted it for me

    heres a good guide for xp,looks daunting but its pretty clear

    Blah blah!? - IT-How to enable AHCI-mode after having installed Windows XP
    Everything is fine in XP and I'd dare not try such a complex set of changes unless needed! It is ONLY in Win 7 I have not been able to get AHCI working. I didn't try starting in IDE mode, but that sounds counter intuitive....but will try it....the system and registry say that the driver is there and it is in the registry as enabled....don't understand why I'd have to remove it and install it....but will try. No one answered if and why I'd want to or need to change the raid driver if I'm not using it. Also, what its setting from installation at = 3 means.
