Question about Acer Aspire 4530-5889 Notebook PC
My laptop hard disk supports AHCI mode but if I enable it in BIOS, the system crashes soon after the log in screen in XP. I understand that AHCI drivers are needed but do not know how and where to obtain them and install. I searched on net but found AHCI drivers for only intel boards. Mine is Acer Grosmoor board on nVidia MCP77 chipset having an AMD Turion QL-60 processor.
Based on my Vista installation, make sure you install the OS in AHCI mode. Then you will be asked to load the appropriate driver. You should be able to download the xp driver for nvidia chipset in the Acer driver download website (Acer). Load it before proceeding the installation. That should take care of the problem.
