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 to set up AHCI mode In RS482M bios.


Hello from here you can download a manual:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?CategoryID=1&DetailID=536&DetailName=Feature&MenuID=24&LanID=0

If the bios is set to IDE/sata mode it will not boot when you select the ahci mode.
Your windows has to be installed again when the settings are made in the bios in order to make the ahci mode working.

More about ahci here:

Need manual for C51GU01


In the bios there's an option to configure SATA as "IDE", "AHCI", or "RAID".
If you don't have data to loose, try this. Install the drive, set the BIOS option to "IDE", boot to windows, install manufacturer's IDE/SATA controller drivers, restart, set the BIOS option to "AHCI".

AHCI stands for Advanced Host Controller Interface. There are rumors that setting AHCI without manufacturer's drivers will give you a BSOD. I'm not sure if you can recover it by switching back to "IDE", but it should be worth a shot.
Best of luck

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 ..

Can not get it installed on Note Book computer


You should go to BIOS and set "mapped as AHCI" to SATA/IDE mode". Find any information regarding AHCI, SATA/ID mode or anything like that on your BIOS. then try to install Windows XP Home Edition

What's the difference between AHCI and IDE in SATA?


1.IDE is an old interface standard used for storage devices while AHCI is an application programming interface for the newer SATA interface.
2.Most SATA controllers allow you to choose between AHCI and IDE among other operation modes.
3.AHCI has advanced features like NCQ and hot plugging that is not available with IDE.
4.Switching from IDE to AHCI or vice versa after the operating system is installed can lead to problems.

Therefore, in BIOS, when you choose AHCI interface your HDD behaves like a SATA one and when you choose IDE it behaves like an IDE one.

If AHCI is not enabled by the motherboard and chipset, SATA controllers typically operate in "IDE emulation" mode which does not allow features of devices to be accessed if the ATA/IDE standard does not support them. Windows device drivers that are labeled as SATA are usually running in IDE emulation mode unless they explicitly state that they are AHCI. While the drivers included with Windows XP do not support AHCI, AHCI has been implemented by proprietary device drivers.[1] Windows Vista[2] and Linux with kernel version 2.6.19 onward[3] have native support for AHCI.

Windows XP boots endless if SATA is set to AHCI


this is'nt so easy here an example solution:

Enabling SATA mode to AHCI after XP Install (applicable to most laptops, or systems) If you want to enable SATA mode as AHCI after installing Windows XP, then read on. It's a bit of a long read because of step-by-step instructions, but worth it.

I did this on on Acer Aspire 5315-2153, it seems like the basic strategy should work on other laptops or systems.

For whatever reason, you may have installed Windows XP on your new laptops with SATA Native Mode disabled in the BIOS. Once XP is installed, enabling it in the BIOS will result in a BSOD upon loading Windows because XP doesn't have the correct drivers.

I read that enabling SATA native mode will give you a slight performance inrease and slightly increased battery life, so it seems worthwhile to me smile.gif

Here's how I did it on a Acer Aspire 5315-2153 running Windows XP (32 Bit version):

- Download the Intel Matrix Storage Manager software from Intel (I think it's iata_enu.exe)or AHCI_Intel_v7.5.0.1017_XP.zip from Acer web site.

- Extract files from AHCI_Intel_v7.5.0.1017_XP.zip to e.g. C:\AHCI_Intel_v7_5_0_1017_XP files need: (you may delete the rest)

iaahci.cat
iaahci.inf
iastor.cat
iastor.inf
iastor.sys
TXTSSETUP.OEM

- Now go to Device Manager, under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers you should

see: Intel 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Storage Controller

- Right-Click on that and select Update Driver
- Say no to connecting to Windows Update to search, hit Next
- Select Install fro a list or specific location (Advanced), hit Next
- Select "Don't search. I will choose the driver to install", hit Next
- Select Have Disk
- Browse to C:\AHCI_Intel_v7_5_0_1017_XP and highlight the iastor.inf file, hit Open
- Select OK
- Now you should have a list of controllers, for the Acer 5315-2153 choose Intel 82801HEM/HBM SATA AHCI Storage Controller, hit Next
- You'll get warned that installing the device driver is not recommended, click Yes to continue installing
- Click Finish
- Click Yes to restart your computer

When your computer boots up, you need to hit F2 to enter the BIOS. Change SATA mode to AHCI, save changes and exit.

After you log into Windows, your computer will find the "new" hardware. Wait until you get the popup message to restart your computer, say Yes to restart one last time.

You may download also from Intel the RAID/AHCI Software - Intel® Matrix Storage Manager (iata70_enu.exe 5640KB) and install it in your system, it may fix in case you got the wrong Intel 82801 AHCI controller.

I give credit to Jamie Rybarczyk at HP Business Support Center forum for doing most of typing.

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.
