    Default GA-X58A-UD5 (rev 2.0) winxp x64 won`t install with ahci

    No matter what i try, i can`t get winxp to install or run in ahci mode from the intel ich10r chipset. It works fine in raid mode or ide mode, but i really want to use ahci if possible. I would really appreciate any help with this problem.

    You can ry to install in IDE mode and switch to AHCI later.

    I have read that this method is easier.

    but are you sure you are using the right driver? I remember the first and only time I ever did that I was using the wrong port and driver... talk about no hope to winning... Make sure your OS drive is connected to one of the first 6 Blue SATA ports and make sure you are using the iaAHCI files as they are for the intel (Blue) ports.

    I did that & no go :( I even put the os drive on the gigabyte port & then setup the intel port as ahci with my storage drive attached, which worked fine, but soon as i shut down & hook my os drive to the intel port, it won`t boot.

    I`m definitely using the right ports & have tried several different drivers.

    To switch to ahci after os install you have to do a reg tweak and extract a file from matrix storage device drivers and put into the system32 folder,I did it for my xp install but I forget which guide I used

    Blah blah!? - IT-How to enable AHCI-mode after having installed Windows XP

    Try that guide above
