How to change the ide mode into ahci on the bios?


If the BIOS supports it, the option is usually available in the advanced options area. Each BIOS is slightly different. Be advised, however that switching the mode from IDE to AHCI will result in Windows not booting if already installed. The two modes are not compatible. Using AHCI will result in needing to reload the OS. Also ensure that you backup all data on the disk as well to prevent data loss.

AHCI (Advanced Host Configuration Interface) is a standard that defines SATA configuration. IDE mode is used when a host computer doesn't support sata drives. Every OS post Windows XP can handle ACHI or sata mode.

How do I unfreeze frozen sata port0


If the issue is that it does not see the hard disk on the 0 port ...and it gives you blue screen memory error ..it means it does not have the ahci driver installed ..you need to instal it as a 3rd party ...or ..go to bios settings (press f2 on start ) .select the hdd and under the settings for it ..disable the ahci for sata ..and select ide or ide compatible ..or sata as ide..depending on choices..
save settings with F10 and restart ..It will make the port functional ..
If you want to install with the advanced host controller interface ..than press f6 I think ...when it asks for 3rd party driver ..and try to load it from a usb device by browsing for it ..(in normal mode you need a floppy drive ) ..but it may work ..be sure the usb is enabled in bios..
if it does not work ..than make a boot-able usb memory ..with the operation system ..and use it and insert the driver disk in the dvd drive ..and will work ..This way .when it asks for 3rd party drivers..you will load the raid driver and the ahci driver ..and go on with the installing ..

Hard disc not detected


I think this is not a recognizing issue ..but you should change the settings on the hard disk bus..Specially if it gives you a blue-screen error ..I think by default the hdd is running on sata ahci mode..and for this you need to load a 3rd party driver when you install the operation system ..If you reinstalled it recently .and it start doing the issues and said there is no drive present it this mode to be blamed...and you need to press f10 I think ..to get to bios ..and in there select under advanced settings the hard disk ..(or in the devices ) ..and under its settings locate the mode ..and disable the ahci and select sata like ide or ide compatible ..or ide mode..and press F10 to save the settings and restart ..In this moment if you have a operation system and its functional it will boot with no issues..
If you want to keep the ahci mode function on ..(its faster ) you need to reload teh operation system ..and insert the driver for ahci during it ..and select it from the location by browsing ..and install it as a 3rd party driver ..and will work ..It is needed for to recognize teh hard disk in the ahci mode..and run proper ..but if the mode is changed on ide compatible ..the driver is no longer needed and the system will run without it ..and the actual difference is not that visible ..unless you have a slow system with low ram memory ..and in this case you feel the difference ..

What's your probleIM trying to install windows after putting in a new hard drive and I keep getting error 10e7160017


If this is a blue screen error and it do not let you to install the operation system ..but only loads a few files ..it means that you have let the hard disk set by default ..in BIOS and it is on sata bus..and needs to install the ahci driver ...If you have its original driver disk ..and you have a bootable disk with the operation system ..try to see if it takes the driver from a memory stick ...Just run the installation from the boot-able disk ..and press f 6 when it asks for 3rd party driver ..if you installing windows XP ..or ..when you get to the first screen on windows 7 ..choose to load driver and browse for the ahci driver on the usb stick ..if it can be found..or load it into a partition instead..or a external floppy disk ..Or ..make a boot-able memory stick .and load windows from it ..and use the original disk with drivers to load the ahci driver ..
In case non of these will work ..just go to bios settings first ..and under the hard disk 0 ..select to disable the ahci mode...and select ide compatible ..or ide default ..or plain ide...anyway ..just not ahci ....and the hard disk will be seen and will let you to install the operation system ..
If you are trying to install from a recovery disk ..it may not work ..cause will not recognize the hard disk and may need to use files usually stored in the reserved partition of windows..so ..best to try install from a boot-able disk or boot-able usb device ..and after that load all drivers and programs ..including antivirus..
remember to get the lan driver in handy ..cause without it you will not be able to connect top the internet and finish the drivers and programs installing ..
let me know if you solved the problem and please rate my answer if it's helpful ..have a nice day !

Install xp in compaq presario c700


The hard disk may be set to Enhanced AHCI SATA mode. Look for Legacy or IDE mode setting in BIOS menu options.
XP SP2 does not recognise Enhanced SATA mode hard disks.
see http://www.mydigitallife.info/2007/10/23/windows-xp-setup-could-not-detect-and-find-any-sata-hard-disk-drive-on-ahci-mode/ 
You may be able to use NLite to make a CD which has correct SATA drivers.

Enter BIOS Menu and look for Hard Disk SATA IDE setting of AHCI. Disable this by setting to Compatible mode.
XP does not support AHCI mode.
Please rate me if this works.

seems that it's a SATA drive and the drivers are not included in XP.
There are some tools available to include these drivers into the XP CD.
Search the net for 'xp-iso-builder' or 'n-Lite'.

This is not necessary if your laptop's got a floppy drive (i don't think so). Then the SATA drivers can easily be loaded by pressing F6 when booting from the XP CD.
