Just curious...what's the system manufacturer and model?

Many systems don't require SATA drivers...just a changed BIOS setting that enables the system to see the SATA drive as a PATA/IDE drive.

Hi Zkteh

 

AHCI is the native mode of SATA. It does supports a number of features over traditional IDE.  AHCI mode is hotswap compatible and the interconnect configures its own transfer rate so that the driver no longer needs to.

 

Many BIOS supports an ATA or IDE emulation mode to support legacy OS like XP, 2003 etc. If you want to enable AHCI mode in XP you need to provide necessary SATA controller driver either via a floppy or integrated via nlite. I noticed considerable performance difference between IDE emulation mode and AHCI mode in some chipsets  especially in laptops. You can use nlite to slipstream your SATA F6 driver to the XP setup CD to install both XP and 7 in AHCI mode.

Hi zkteh

 

AHCI means "Advanced Host Controller Interface". It is the native mode SATA drives are supposed to operate. ATA or IDE mode of SATA interface is only provided for compatibility with older OS like XP etc.

 

In PATA or IDE, transfer rate is controlled by the mas-storage  driver while in an AHCI SATA configuration it is dynamically controlled by the controller itself. 

 

In case you are still in doubt please refer http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Host_Controller_Interface
