  1. Hi Fernando. Thanks for explanations! I have no idea abt tricks with registry... will memorize it for future. Finally, I installed Win7 but I'll grab drivers prepared by you just for a case. Btw, in AHCI mode device have 0ab8 id (as I guess) - so, I just tried to switch driver in wrong way... sad, as now I have to install bunch of SW along with W7 ((. Thanks a lot for you help! Regards.
  2. Hi Fernando, First of all - you have made great job! Now about my problems: I have Asus X50Gl Series (F5GL motherboard) notebook. I noticed that switching in bios to AHCI mode (it's called "Enhanced mode" there) significally rased speed of hdd access. (Actually I just tried to load XP from hybernation it look almost twice farster - but with BSOD at the end as it should be as drivers was just windows default) Then I tried to install drivers from asus site: nForce pack with "SataIDE Driver (v10.3.0.42) WHQL" but I noticed that Sata driver not changed from win default to installed one. So, I just manually updated driver to nvidia one - rebooted - got bsod as expected, then changed mode to AHCI and again got bsod!!! I was really confused at this point and still is because: after I restored windows to functional state I checked controller's device id and what driver have: driver: [NVIDIA] %NVSTOR_DESC%=NVStor_Inst,PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0054&CC_0101 %NVSTOR_DESC%=NVStor_Inst,PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0055&CC_0101 %NVSTOR_DESC%=NVStor_Inst,PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0266&CC_0101 %NVSTOR_DESC%=NVStor_Inst,PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0267&CC_0101 %NVSTOR_DESC%=NVStor_Inst,PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_037F&CC_0101 %NVSTOR_DESC%=NVStor_Inst,PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_03F6&CC_0101 %NVSTOR_DESC%=NVStor_Inst,PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_044D&CC_0106 %NVSTOR_DESC%=NVStor_Inst,PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0554&CC_0106 %NVSTOR_DESC%=NVStor_Inst,PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0555&CC_0106 %NVSTOR_DESC%=NVStor_Inst,PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_07F4&CC_0106 %NVSTOR_DESC%=NVStor_Inst,PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0AD5&CC_0106 %NVSTOR_DESC%=NVStor_Inst,PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0AD4&CC_0106 %NVSTOR_DESC%=NVStor_Inst,PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0AB9&CC_0106 %NVSTOR_DESC%=NVStor_Inst,PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0AB8&CC_0106 controller: PCI\VEN_10DE&DEV_0AB4 just for a case I've got latest nForce but it have no 0AB4 device too. So, I tried to add this dev id to inf and install this recent nForce again - now driver was found automatically but it didn't helped much - I've got bsod again. Then I tried to find any info on this dev id in inet: - MCP79 AHCI Controller - here is dev from driver inf - MCP79 SATA Controller - here is actual dev id. Here is a little difference, I have no idea what can this mean and if it have any meaning ;-) And as result now I even can't ressurect windows - even after repair it falls to bsod in IDE mode :-( I'm run out of ideas, so maybe you have one - what can I try else? PS: Now I'm thinking abt. Win7 installation but first I want to check it's inf files for my device id :-) Hm... nothing there, by the way - Win7 have generic ahci driver, isn't it? Thanks in advance, Andrey
