Acer :: AMD Vs Intel X64 Support For SATA/AHCI

Aug 9, 2008

Acer Extensa notebooks usually come with SATA drives. However, my impression is that models with Intel Core 2 Duo CPU's have built-in SATA/AHCI support in Vista, while AMD Athlon 64 X2 models do not:

- Device Manager shows the drive and controller as IDE/ATA, not SATA, even when the drive is SATA;

- there is no option in BIOS (even latest version) for switching from ATA compatibility to SATA/AHCI

It looks like AMD does not support SATA/AHCI, while AMD does not.

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 1720 :: Difference Between ATA And AHCI Settings For SATA Operation In BIOS

Aug 31, 2007

I just got my new 1720 Inspiron, and I had a problem when trying to create an image of the C and D drive using the Ultimate Boot CD (BART), it would never see my hard disk partitions.  I changed the BIOS setting for the On Board Devices from AHCI (default) to ATA for SATA operation.  I also had to change the Flash Cache Module to be disabled, it was enabled in the Factory Default.  The result of these changes was good, I was able to see my C and D drive when booting from my Ultimate Boot CD. What these changes do?  Should I leave my BIOS at the new setting, or will I lose performance from my hard disk?

Lenovo ThinkPad W Series :: W540 - SATA Option (RAID Or AHCI) Gone After BIOS Update To 2.05

Feb 6, 2014

W540 20BG001CGE, had BIOS 1.05 and RAID 1 with two Samsung 840 EVO 1TB working fine under Windows 7 - x64. Did a (by lenovo update tool recommended) BIOS Update with the bios update manager to 2.05. Update ran fine. After Rebooting (and loading defaults, disabling Intel Rapid Start, Changing BIOS boot option to legacy first ... I recognized SATA Option (AHCI or RAID) in BIOS is gone. At boot Intel Matrix Storage Configuration doesnot appear anymore (where you can build RAID etc).
 
Boot then brings up message "missing operating system".
 
Downgrade to BIOS 1.05 impossible, due to ISO File on www.lenovo.com support is not system compatible, message "Lenovo Group Limited - Invalid system disk; Replace te disk, and then press any key")
(The link to the ISO File version 1.05 at the bottom of this page links a non bootable ISO image [URL]....)
Also the downgrade to BIOS version 1.08 found here [URL] .... does not work, CD also messages "Lenovo Group Limited - Invalid system disk - Replace ...").
 
Rewriting BIOS version 2.05 (GNET57WW) does not work (says "BIOS update not necessary").
 
Embedded Controller Version GMHT25WW (1.10) ME Firmware Version 9.0.22.1467. How to get back my RAID controller?

Lenovo U/S Series :: U410 - Change AHCI To RAID

May 10, 2014

Changing Chipset SATA Mode from AHCI to RAID?
 
I have already checked:
1) Changing regiser's key as above/;
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesstorahci Start 3 -> 0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesiaStorA Start 0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesiaStorV Start 0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetServicesstorahci Error Control 3 -> 0
 
Unfortunately after rebooting in RAID mode, OS doesn't work.
 
2) Going step by step over the description made by microsoft support team: [URL] .....
 
Doesn't work.
 
My aim is to configure my SSD as a cache drive and as I read - without changing mode into RAID, it wouldn't work.
 
Maybe there is a possibility to set up SSD as cache in AHCI mode?

Sony :: SZ160p Sata 1 Or Sata 2

Mar 9, 2010

Has anyone installed a SSD drive in this model with success? If so, does the BIOS need to be upgraded? I have a Vertex 120 SSD drive I'm not using and am thinking about putting it in the Sony and installing Win 7/32 bit.

I would like for all the current functions to work such as the camera and video card. Would this be a big issue or should I just reload the original OS(XP).

HP/Compaq :: PATA Or SATA Blu-Ray DVD Drive

Mar 11, 2009

I am having problems with some Blu-Ray DVDs in my DV9774ca with a optiarc BC-5500A ATA.
When I put some Blu-Ray DVDs in the drive starts to spin and makes the normal searching noises for 30 seconds and then it stops without doing anything at all.

I decided to try download a firmware update, but the site says not to flash SATA drives with PATA firmware.

How can I find out what it is? I can only assume its SATA. The firmware I found is for PATA!

Also I assume that the firmware I already have is older than the downloadable version (not from H.P.). The downloadable version is 1.05 from November/08. I bought my laptop in Feb/08.

HP/Compaq :: Native Sata Support

Jan 31, 2009

I have an HP dv9000 laptop.

It came with Windows Vista, at one point I was dual-booting Vista/XP, and I am currently using Windows 7beta.

I recently went in my bios settings and tried to enable native sata support, and after that, my computer wouldn't go into Win7, until i disabled it again.

It was enabled when i first got my computer, and i had to disable it for XP compatibility. I figure, if it works with Vista, there's no reason it wouldnt work with Win7. Perhaps it's configured to run without the setting, so enabling it effs it up and confuses it. is there any way i can enable it again, preferably without having to do a full OS install?

HP/Compaq :: Trying To Install Xp Over Vista No Sata Option

Mar 18, 2009

I have a HP DV2000 (BIOs states it is a 2500) that I am trying to install XP over vista.

I have gone into the bios to disable the SATA but there is no option to do so. I do have a external floppy to use. I thought I was computer savy but am feeling kinda dumb. Should I start with a flash? What model am I actually working on, 2000 or 2500.

HP/Compaq :: EliteBook 8530p- E-SATA Port Does Not Recognize HDD (Vista 32)

Sep 21, 2009

OS is Vista x86 32-bit.

We couldn't for the life of us get the Seagate HDD recognized when plugged inside the eSATA port. Worked fine via the alternative IEEE1394 connector, though. The "super-duper" trick recommended by the manufacturer, consisting of mere rescanning drives with the HDD manager in Computer Management did not effect in anything. Nor did installation of Intel's hard drive manager (which came with a driver update under the veil)

But the dealer whom he bought the HDD from insisted that the HDD worked fine via eSATA, so it doesn't appear to be a hardware problem, nor could a defective cable be the culprit, since he used the very same.

HP/Compaq :: DVD Drive Connected To Laptop With Sata To Esata Cable, Drive Is Not Recognized By Windows 7

Feb 22, 2010

I connected a dvd drive to my laptop using, a sata to esata cable. my laptop has a ESATA port.

I don't know if you should post some kind of config summary (if yes let me know, I will do it promptly) basically I have a HP DV6t quad edition with an Intel 5 serie chipset,
PM55 express chipset (dont really know if it make any sense but still, I will just say state it) so I installed Intel Matrix Storage and when I connect the drive I can see it, but windows 7 does not see it, it's like I didn't plug anything in. [url] also my bios is almost configurable, I don't know why I can change the time, the date, the admin password, the boot order, virtualization, fan on/off that's pretty much it. so what options do I have if I want to make this dvd drive work?
