Thanks.

What about the AHCI vs iaStor part? For what it's worth, it's set to AHCI in the BIOS.

Howdy!



That's the best setting to install with.

Just wondering what the screenshot means when it says iaStor.

(It might have helped if I had switched over to English from the German...)

My scores seem to be in line with those of others here, so I'm guessing it's just listing the driver used. The iaStor being the Intel driver (I looked it up) and the AHCI listing being the standard Windows AHCI driver.

Unless someone tells me I'm wrong.

BFK, Thanks for the vote of confidence - but I do not have the faintest idea what that could mean.

The AHCI part I figured out from Zenith2009's screenshot. Mine says iaStor in the same place, referring to the Intel Storage Driver. Is that OK?

As for the good alignment part, how is that determined?
If curious about the current insallations alignment you can check it here:
http://www.techpowerup.com/articles/other/157


And correct:
iaStore = the Intel AHCI driver.
MSAHCI = win7s default AHCI driver

its simply refering to what driver type is running.

Great stuff, Wishmaster - Thanks!
