Windows 7: xp64 on a win7board?

21 Jun 2012   #11

Windows 10 Pro (x64)

Lets cover what using the IDE setting versus the AHCI setting for SATA. You will notice there is no speed difference between the two settings. The speed comes from SATA itself not the mode it is running in. What AHCI offers is new features not available with IDE. IDE is a legacy mode to allow compatibility with non-SATA aware systems or a driver is not available to make it SATA aware. Picking one or the other will not be slower or faster.

thanks man, thats very sweet news!
as for the going nuts guys, i know a little bit about computers as even put a local ad in the paper fixing pc's and this was a few years back i can remember seeing a very few vista boxes, mostly xp's though and not one i couldnt fix even stuff i knew nothing about i just googled the issues and bamb moved o. to the next. that lasted a few months until my regular bussines picked back up. then last year i got a call for some security cameras to port forward and was taking my sons box to configntil ured the modems, until that got nuts(no phun intended) so i bought a laptop with win 7 and used it to configure and bail, i picked a laptop with hdmi so my write-off could be a toy in the mean time. wbat a toy it turnes out to be, man i cant even get it back to connect to my router for the longest still to this day its not connected, thats just the tip of my iceburg of not huge issues just seriously different then the os i was used to/able to use. i visited this board a few months ago for a lady who still calls every few months to fix her rig, well she got a new dell with win 7 and she coulnt connect online with her onboard ethernet port what??? i figured i at least gotta try for her, and i kept saying network type was either private or public i forgot which one it was, and some good pc guy from this board i think it was the admin had a red file to make it stay the one it needs to be on inorder to work, never
changed, so i just bought a wifi usb stick and sent it on its way. now call my nutty for kust wanting my fair share and just wanting whats comming to now xp64 got me back in the well going to make this as solved since i wont be needing achi all. "8^)
