Dell :: Q Regarding M1530 And AHCI Drivers

Apr 10, 2009

I recently undertook a clean install of Vista (SP1) onto my XPS M1530. After the installation was complete,

I manually installed the Intel Matrix Storage Device drivers (AHCI).

When I view the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers list in Vista's Device Manager I see the following:

- ATA Channel 0
- Intel(R) 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Controller
- Intel(R) ICH8M Ultra ATA Storage Controllers - 2850

Dell :: XPS M1530 NVidia XP Drivers

Feb 11, 2009

Does anyone know which is the latest driver (working ) for 8600 GT. I'd really like to update. I tried 181.20 and 22. In unmodified ini "setup could not find any compatible hardware". In modified ini dll files were missing.

And also another thing. All the time when i play games the laptop just shutsdown like it didnt had a power but its on AC. when it boots no errors shows. Maybe i'll try the 179.28 to see. In Vista this never happened!

Dell :: Drivers For XPS M1530 (video)

Apr 17, 2010

I recently downloaded the new one from nvidia (197.16), and I find modern warfare 2 seems to run a little slower, especially when I aim down the sight.

The one I had before was the Xtreme-G 190.62, which ran pretty well.

What drivers work best for you right now? I can't seem to find any recent posts on this subject.

Dell :: I Need Some M1530 Windows 7 Drivers

Aug 3, 2009

I am loving W7. Its really slick and best of all simple. So far just about everything important seems to be working fine. I updated the nvidia driver. But there are some things that seem to be non-functional...

such as the the sound drivers (even though I get sound. Sound Blaster says I need them in order to install), webcam, bluetooth and scroll bars on the mouse pad.

I was wondering if there are any drivers that have been released that fix these issues. If not... oh well don't really care but it would be nice to have everything working.

Dell :: XPS M1530: SATA Drivers For Windows XP Installation

Feb 2, 2009

After reading Its OFFICIAL! Windows XP works perfectly on the XPS m1330!, I've decided to install XP on my M1530, but i'm unsure on what to do about step 1:

"Step 1... You need a version of Windows XP SP2 with built-in SATA drivers... I personally used LastXP (feel free to go find this on a torrent site somewhere,

you have the option to install one of your own valid XP keys as part of its setup). (The other way is to put SATA drivers on a USB stick and hit F6 during initial Windows setup...) .....

Dell :: Vista 32bit Windows 7 64bit; Where To Find Drivers For Xps M1530?

Feb 19, 2010

I'm currently thinking about installing windows 7 64bit instead of vista 32bit, which I am running atm.

Partly to get use of all 4gb and partly cause I've heard good stuff about windows 7, at least compared to vista, which is utter *beeep*.

My questions is now - where do I find compatible drivers for windows 7 64 bit.
My laptop is as the thread name reveals a Dell xps m1530.

Dell :: AHCI

Jan 26, 2009

I want to install mediadirect on my xps 1530. I want to follow this Dell Vista Laptop Reformat and Bloatware Removal Guide
But I have a question before beginning.

This paragraph : AHCI Concerns: On new Dell systems, they are set up to run in AHCI mode which will give you a 15% system performance boost. In many instances, the AHCI driver MUST be installed during the initial installation process for the installation to work.

Those not installing it are finding that their system may BSOD or hang during the installation and saying "Completing Installation Process". One must find the driver specific to their system either on the drivers disk that came with their laptop or at in the drivers section.

Download and expand it to a USB drive or disk; the USB is preferred but it is important that you expand it on the media you just saved it to. Once done, put it aside for now .....

Dell :: Install Windows 7: AHCI Driver

Aug 19, 2009

I am about to install Windows 7 thanks to my school's MSDNAA program and plan to use the 64-bit version (replacing Vista/32-bit). I remember from the bloatware removal thread where it is highly recommended to install the AHCI driver before installing the OS since there is a performance boost.

Should I continue to use the AHCI driver before installing Windows 7? On Dell's site, they only list vista versions, so I don't know if it is needed or if it even works with 7.

If I should keep using it, should I use the 32-bit or 64-bit driver on Dell's site? I know it sounds obvious that I would want the 64-bit driver if I am upgrading to a 64-bit OS, but I have heard people say many 64-bit drivers are not as reliable as 32-bit, so I am wondering if it matters which one I use

Dell :: 1737 XP32 AHCI Frustration

Oct 14, 2009

So just for fun I switched my drive operation mode from AHCI to IDE and installed Windows XPSP3 32bit.

I went around collecting drivers until all my devices were recognized, and then slipstreamed the drivers along with the newest Intel Matrix driver(extracted from the installer) onto a custom install DVD using nLite.

Shut down, set drive mode to AHCI, booted from CD, and then BAM! BSOD halfway through install initiation

Dell Inspiron 11 :: Upgrade To SSD Will Not Work In AHCI Only In ATA?

Jan 7, 2015

I have a Dell laptop Inspiron 11 3000 2in1. I decided to swap my Dell Sata 54000 rpm HD to a SSD M500 240GB. I went in the BIOS and it does recognize the Fixed HDD - Crucial_CT240M500SSD1 240GB. I tried installing Windows 8.1 and it would not recognize the SSD HD. What I notice if I go in the BIOS and change SATA Operation to ATA it works fine. I would like to have it on AHCI because I guess that is the latest technology for reading a HD. Any reason why I can't install it with AHCI? It also did work fine before on AHCI with the factory HD that came with the laptop.

Dell XPS 15 9530 :: Unable To Boot Using AHCI

Nov 4, 2014

Yesterday i got my new XPS 15 9530, that's where i ran into some problems.Laptop is unable to work under AHCI in any possible configuration.It ships with 32GB SSD + 1TB HDD, i unscrew and swapped the 1TB HDD with a new Samsung 850 Pro 512GB. I started installing windows while on Intel's SRT (raid), then i noticed it and after installation was over i changed to AHCI.

Then i had to re-install, i boot using windows disk (talking about 8.1 pro) and windows installer was slow during this period... then after i reached the drive listing, i couldn`t touch either drivers. I couldn`t create partition in the samsung pro, i was receiving the 0x80070057 and a couple errors more of the same type. I started playing around with the GPT & MBR formatting, used external computer to create partitions, layouts but nothing.Whenever AHCI is on, i can`t manage to work using the Samsung 850 Pro disk.

So now i`m using Intel's SRT (raid instead) while having a single disk (samsung 850 pro) where windows is installed, while not achieving full read/write speeds because of the samsung magician that has to work with AHCI, and the Intel Rapid Storage Technology (irst). The other drive (32GB SSD) is formatted for linux, i have to disable secure boot to boot into there but that's fine.How can i get AHCI to work? I tried so many ways but clearly nothing..

Dell :: Inspiron 1545 Sata Drive ATA / AHCI

May 25, 2009

got a inspiron 1545 recently with a SATA 320 gb HDD / 4gb ram with Windows Vista Home Basic. Like most of us I hate Vista. So I created a partition & installed XP.

Used a program "EasyBCD" to setup dual boot. I get the dual boot screen at startup. But only XP boots. After a little probing, came to know that there are only 2 options in the BIOS for SATA operations. AHCI & ATA. If I select ATA I can boot only to XP. If I select AHCI then I can boot only into Vista. Searched around but the solutions were a bit over my head. Really appreciate if anybody could come up with something in lay mans terms.

Dell Inspiron 11 3147 :: Can't Detect SSD In AHCI Mode

Jul 27, 2014

I bought new Inspiron 11 3147 (2 in 1 model).  When "SATA Operation" is set to AHCI laptop can't detect SSD (Intel 530) in Windows 8.1 setup.

When I change "SATA Operation" to ATA Windows 8.1 can detect SSD in setup without any problem.

I think this is BIOS error. There will be any update? I can't use my SSD now.
