Windows 7: New SSD - Questions

Did you reinstall XP with the slipstreamed ISO?

How did you get it to work in AHCI for both OS's?

As you know I was unable to get into XP when in AHCI mode. Switched to IDE and no problem. I downloaded the AHCI drivers for my controller and installed them into the existing XP instalation by following a guide I found on the net.
Once that worked, I slipstreamed them in a XP w/SP3 iso

I have yet to take on fresh install of XP, and Win7 will be replaced with the image file I created yesterday.

Could you PLEASE give some details on where you found the guide and a link to the drivers.

Did you have to add anything to the registry?
Did you do it manually or was it in a file of some type?

The guide I used is located here Guide: Enable AHCI in Windows XP After Installation - Bootbeta

I then searched through intel AHCI drivers until I found
RST_9.6.4.1002_Win_drivers_and_utils.zip... read the Readme.txt and found it included the driver I was looking for... the Intel(R) ICH10R SATA AHCI Controller

I followed the guide and when rebooted, I had an error upon entering XP. (See Snip 1)

I had to download
Intel® Rapid Storage Technology... iata_cd.exe from Intel

I did not run it from a cd, I just ran it in windows. Once done, I rebooted and had another error. (Snip 2)

I then deleted the install of Intel® Rapid Storage Technology from control panel uninstall a program, rebooted and all was good! (Snip 3)

Nice work, JimmyJazz. You've got rep!

This thread will help others via Google because of your research and diligence.

We knew that Win7 could be changed to AHCI with the BIOS edits but had not seen it done with XP here yet TMK.

You should stick around to help others.

I've used Windows Media Center a couple times and like the look and feel and would use it if I had a couple of these things. 1. Is it possible to skin? 2. Is there a way to sync free tv shows and movies to it, or something along those lines? Thanks. ~Joshua~
