AHCI Driver for XP Home x32

I've been looking for an AHCI driver for my netbook for about 2 yrs - No help from Acer or AMD or anybody else - This is a dual system with W7HP and XP but have to run in IDE for the XP to work - Also installed an SSD drive which needs AHCI -See Attached Speccy info - The model ia an Acer AO722-BZ454 - The reason I need XP is for my legacy Race car mgmt software which doesn't like Vista or 7 very much!!

Any help appreciated - Papa

Hey Kari and WHS - How it goin' !!!!

Maxie -- Thanks for the help - I tried using Acronis PP (Universal Restore) and got several errors -changed the bios to AHCI and tried to boot but no go - I then tried using a post I found using Google for 'Enable AHCI on an existing W XP x86 installation' - Following this instruction I got an error msg that the driver I was trying to install was from the wrong manf - I guess HP instead of Acer -

I have several other options to try so I'll keep you posted - Again, thanks for your response !! --
