Acer :: AMD Vs Intel X64 Support For SATA/AHCI
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
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.
HP/Compaq :: Enabling AHCI On HDX16t
I am trying to enable AHCI on my HDX16t so that I can get the most out of my intel SSD X25-M.
I plan to do a default system restore by using the "Clean Vista install WITH NO ACTIVATION" thread with an original vista CD.
1) how to enable this?
2) Is it enabled by default?
3) And if so, how can I tell?
Sony :: SZ160p Sata 1 Or Sata 2
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 :: HDX 16T Sata Controller
if the onboard Sata/eSata controller is "port multiplier" capable? Meaning I can connect more than one drive (via a hub) to the eSata port?
I have an Expresscard eSata that can but wanted to know if the onboard port is capable of this function.
HP/Compaq :: PATA Or SATA Blu-Ray DVD Drive
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
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
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 :: HP Dv5t XP Installation BSoD Correct Sata Drivers
how to slipstream sata drivers onto Windows XP installation disk I decided to try it out. I had two unsuccessful attempts and I'm wondering that it probably is due to me using the wrong drivers for the job.
I have a Dv5t 1135ee, can anybody please direct me to the right drivers that I need to put onto my Windows XP installtion disk to not get a BSoD.
HP/Compaq :: EliteBook 8530p- E-SATA Port Does Not Recognize HDD (Vista 32)
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 :: Mini Screen Size Change
I tried a search and couldn't find the answer. Does anybody know why the size of the mini screen changed from 10.2 to 10.1, the resolution dropped slightly because of that too. I bought one in November with the 10.2 and they are sending a replacement with the 10.1, any reason to just keep the 10.2 and repair it.

Dell :: AHCI
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 www.Dell.com 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 :: XPS Studio 13 And AHCI
I am going to do a clean install on my system using Vista 64bit.
I saw the reformat and bloatware removal forum and wanted to know to I need to install the AHCI driver during install and if so where can I find it for my system,
I read somewhere that I do not need to install the driver as the Vista install cd that came with my system has the driver on it .....
Dell :: Enabling AHCI
I reformatted my inspiron 1520 but didnt load ahci drivers (vista didn't find them). When I try and enable ahci in the bios, i get a bsod when vista is booting. How do I get ahci enabled?
Acer :: HDD Slow In AHCI
i did a test in HDtune and i found something strange :
ide mode : burst speed - 120mb/s
cpu usage : 6,7 %
AHCI mode : burst speed - 68mb/s
cpu usage : 21% ( no mistake )
is this normal ? Hard disk is WD scorpio black 320gb
in HDtune i see that my hdd is set to ide - 100mb/s instead of sata
also when i connect a usb device ( after 3 connects especially) i get a BSOD and the error 0x0000008E .
I never got this error before and it all started 1 month ago, out of the blue.
HP/Compaq :: DVD Drive Connected To Laptop With Sata To Esata Cable, Drive Is Not Recognized By Windows 7
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?
Dell :: D630 AHCI Cant Get It Work
I am using ATA mode with XP. Lately I switched to ACHI in bios and do a clean installation.
During setup I press F6 to install ICH8M driver. The driver is loaded sucessfully from a floppy disk.
Later when the windows installer prompt whether to Install Windows, Repair or F3 to quit; I select install windows and it prompts unable to detect hdd.
Dell :: Q Regarding M1530 And AHCI Drivers
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 :: AHCI Drivers Vista X64
I am looking into installing Vista Ultimate x64 and was wondering if there is anyone here that has upgraded to vista 64 bit and what they did as far as drivers go. Mainly I am just trying to get all of the drivers ill need found before doing anything.
Dell :: Install Windows 7: AHCI Driver
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
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 :: AHCI Issue From Bloatware Guide...
I am following the bloatware removal guide and once I get to the part in the setup where I have to point it to the Intel Matrix file I put on a CD,
it eliminates all but one file that it says is compatible with my system, but then that file will not work to install
