AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 / Vista

My MOBO only supports SATA II, so yes thats what I am running. You are correct I did not enable AHCI. I'll look at the link you posted, thanks I'll report back with my findings

OK, let us know if you want to pursue it. We'd need to know what you did, and what didn't work, errors, etc. A Guy

WINDOWS 7 Ultimate x64 Full
 
 

Here is my laptop after installing 240gig SSD I was hoping for at least a 7. The laptop came with two spinners one a 5200 rpm 750g and a 500g 7200 hybrid drive that held the operating system Momentus XT Solid State Hybrid Hard Drive | Seagate I did not relise it had this drive and i am currently using it as storage with the SSD but after reading about this HHD it seems to be more designed to hold an operating system than be storage. My question is do you think I should use the SSD as storage and the hybrid for Windows?

I would use your new SSD for the OS- 240gig SSD

Reinstall this for storage in place of the hybrid.- 5200 rpm 750g

More room for storage and the speed difference does not matter on a storage HDD.

Stick the hybrid in an external case. eSata or USB 3.0 which ever you have available on the laptop for extra storage.

My 2 cents.

Thx Mike, I appreciate your 2 cents. I though I might get a bump in WEI with the hybrid as storage but as you stated it made no diffrence.

Are you sure you are in AHCI mode?

I would think it would be over 7.0 on the Hard disk rating.

No the hybrid won't make any difference in the score since the primary disk is used for the rating which is ths SSD.

Yes I am in AHCI however not my ideia of a clean install the operating system was restored using 5 disks created from factory image on origonal HD. I thought about buying another copy of Windows a fresh install without all toshiba's blowtware would be nice.
