  1. See below. Obviously none of the AMD AHCI/RAID drivers do support the S.M.A.R.T. data while running Windows XP. If this should be true' date=' there is no workaround. At least it will be your decision, if you want a better performance (running the SATA Controllers in AHCI mode, but without S.M.A.R.T. data) or a continuous monitoring of the hdd S.M.A.R.T. values.@ all: Here are the requested download links to the newest 32/64bit AMD SBxxx textmode drivers dated 11/17/2011, which have been modified by me yesterday to make them usable with (hopefully) all AMD Southbridges from SB6xx up: >32bit AMD SBxxx textmode driver v3.3.1540.26 for Windows XP mod by Fernando< >64bit AMD SBxxx textmode driver v3.3.1540.26 for Windows XP x64 mod by Fernando< Good luck! Regards Fernando Thank you for your help Fernando. I give a thought.
  2. Did you add AMD AHCI drivers to Windows 7? Windows default driver msahci.sys does transfer S.M.A.R.T data. Driver ahcix86.sys 3.1.1540.127 dosn't transfer S.M.A.R.T data. http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/message.php?msg_id=27817123 No idea about V3.2.1540.35 Sorry for not answering your question For Windows 7 I used no extra AMD drivers; so the drivers are 7 drivers.

I used V3.3.1540.22. I made a XP O.S. on a HDD to prevent unwanted influence of the SSD. The result was the same: no SMART info. Cdob says that some drivers do not transfer SMART data. Is a workaround possible (fernando1)?
  4. Since spring 2011 I own an ASUS M4A89GTD PRO/USB3 motherboard. In January this year a Crucial SSD was added. The Crucial should run in the AHCI mode. The PC is equipped as follows: AMD Phenom II X4 910 2 X 4 GB Crucial DDR3 2 Seagate ST32000641 AS 1 Seagate 2000DL003 Optiarc Sata optical drive Drivers were taken from the system cd rom. A dual-boot system XP – 7 is used. The installation of Windows 7 with bios setting Sata1-6 AHCI, Sata 5-6 IDE; or Sata 1-6 AHCI went all right. After boot the drives were recognised and installed. The program CrystalDiskInfo showed all drives and their temperature. For XP I tried the installation of the AHCI drivers in an already installed XP system (Phenomic, How do you enable AHCI mode AFTER you have installed XP, 01 August 2009); made an installation cd with the AMD driver AMD AHCI Driver V3.2.1540.35 for Windows 32/64bit XP (Version 3.2.1540.35/1.2.0.16) in the bios settings Sata1-4 AHCI, Sata 5-6 IDE and as well Sata 1-6 AHCI. In all cases XP booted up In AHCI mode (register settings were slightly different). However; CrystalDiskInfo doesn’t show disks and their temperature (a message popped up saying that in Raid SMART values couldn’t be displayed). Obvious this AHCI mode acts like Raid. What to do?
