    Ahhh, well sorry! That is actually one way I did not test, in RAID mode with a RAID array setup, so that may be the key as to why you see it say that.

    I wont be setting up an array on the Intel controller for a few days, but I will remember to check this when I do, but I bet that is it!

    I dunno :) - X58A-UD7 F7p

    I think that is it though, I see AHCI BIOS installed because I was actually in AHCI mode since there were no SATAII RAID Arrays all disks would be ran in AHCI Mode (NON-Member RAID)

    I have Azalia disabled because I have my own sound card installed, so that disables the onboard Realtek.

    I think you just need to install the UUA Driver again, and then get the latest Realtek driver direct from Realtek.

    Actually I can test this for you tomorrow, I need to setup a clean array on the Intel ports for testing and data collection for a review I am working on, so I can do that tomorrow I think.

    If I do I will let ya know what I find

    OK, tested and I find the same







    So I'd suggest you go through the BIOS flash and or Clear CMOS and see if that helps.

    What ports do you have your array plugged into? Should be SATAII_0 and 1

    Okay, I've now done the following:

    Clear CMOS.
    Load optimized defaults.
    Enable XHD, Floppy drive A, and XMP profile.
    Init display PEG, disable LOGO, disable unused ports LAN2, GSATA, Serial, Parallel.

    Bootup still shows AHCI BIOS not installed.

    Because the system works correctly, and acebmxer reports the same behavior, I suspect that this is a small bug in the BIOS that simply displays the wrong message but otherwise does not affect performance.

    Let me know if you'd like me to perform any other tests, and thanks for your help.

    It must be the BIOS or something then, I only see this in IDE mode.

    Since all is well I think you can safely ignore this!

    I have HDD and DVD-ROM drive attached to Gigabyte SATA-controlled ports and DVD-RW drive attached to IHC9R-controlled port.
    When I unattach DVD-RW drive, I can see "AHCI BIOS not installed".

    The workstation works better if AHCI BIOS is not installed.
    1. If AHCI BIOS is installed and Net boot ROM (for discrete network card) is enabled, the computer hangs up showing "RPL-ROM-FFC 50", just before booting from a disk.
    2. When AHCI BIOS is installed, regularly error ID=9 (\device\Ide\iaStor0 timeout) is logged, and then the workstation becomes unstable. If DVD-RW is not attached, AHCI BIOS is not installed, and the error does not occur. The error occurs in Windows XP only; it does not occur in Linux.

    GA-P35-DS3R Rev.1.0 BIOS
    F3 (05/14/2007) with Intel Serial ATA AHCI BIOS Ver iSrc 1.07 08042006

    Network adapter TP-Link TG-3468
    BIOS Setting: SATA AHCI Mode=AHCI, SATA Port0-3 Native Mode=Disabled, Onboard SATA/IDE Ctrl Mode=AHCI
