    For to enable AHCI in existing Windows Installation's


    Caution: Do NOT enable AHCI in BIOS prior you'd done some changes in your Registry! If you had AHCI enable already, disable it first and restart computer!


    Use WinKey + R and type Regedit in the command line and hit the Enter key, this will open the Registration Editor.
    Go to:

    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/services/iaStorV
    • right click on Start, select Modify and set Data Value to -0
    now go to:

    • HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/services/msahci
    • right click on Start, select Modify and set Data Value to 0


    Close Registration Editor and restart computer.


    While start computer open the BIOS Page and set the SATA Mode to AHCI


    Save Bios settings and restart.


    Windows will now install the required new drivers fully automatic and should work perfectely.

    If that first key isn't needed, the value will automatically change back to 1 or 2. So using the first key as well is just for to be on the secure site and not need to do the job twice!:p

    And we're talking about Windows 8 here and not Windows 7, Vista or XP!:rolleyes:

    In BIOS, Integrated Peripherals, you have to set OnChip SATA Type to AHCI.


    If OnChip SATA Type to AHCI is set, you should set the next: OnChip SATA Port4/5 Type to: AHCI as well. Do not set as IDE


    You'll find this in the MB Manual on Page 44

    That didn't worked, not in Vista an neither in Windows 7! I had done just an Re-Installation of Windows. If AHCI Is already enablerd before setup Windows 8, all should just working fine and id does on my computers! But I didn't use Intel, I use AMD only!

    I think you should learn to accept that other having their own experiences which may differs from your not existing ones!

    And I would suggest to get back to school and learn to communicate with others in normal way and to accept that other also be humans who have the same rights as everybody else!

    Stop flaming and trolling!:mad:

    Many computers start to get BSOD these days because I find out that AHCI somehow becomes defective. The computer I have doesn't have AHCI but I know the next one i'm buying probably will. I remember working on a friends XPS because it for some reason decided to BSOD till AHCI was set to off when AHCI being enabled was fine before that.

    Unfortunately many Hardware Manufacturers didn't update the BIOS's to the need to the new system in an timely manner.

    Personal I didn't have problems with AHCI and I using it since quite a bit of years, started with Vista. The only times I was getting problems were if the OS was installed BEFORE the activation of AHCI. If AHCI was enabled already while setup the OS, there were not any problems. In my main machine I've 6 Sata3 ports, 2 sSata3 port and 2 extra PCI-Ex SATA Controller's (both with 2 SATA 2 Port's) installed and have up to 8 HDD's connected to the machine, 4 of them in Racks (removeable). I could any of that HDD's just changing while the machine work, except that HDD with the OS running! By the way the MB is an ASRock 990FX Fatality with "Bulldozer" CPU.

    I didn't had even once a BSOD in Windows 8 (yet), the AHCI is just working to 100%. The only MB I ever had problems with AHCI, which I wasn't able to solve because of the old BIOS, was an Gigabyte with Intel Duo Core 2 CPU and that were at Vista times!

    The best solution for forcing AHCI when installing Windows 8 is to:

    - Switch to IDE, start installing Windows 8
    - After copying files and first restart go to your BIOS and switch to AHCI mode
    - Windows will configure itself and voila! It works!

    Now all you have to do is to install AHCI driver. Nothing more to do.

    From my experience over the last several years, installing Windows without AHCI enable in BIOS will trigger problems while installing with AHCI enabled will just work! Last is done on ALL of he Windows 8 Computers I had setup the last few week, around 25 PC's, without a single problem.

    By the way, the AHCI driver is part of of the Windows 8 Installation, no extra driver is needed.

    Using the method of installing Windows 8 first and enable AHCI later on, will require the Registry Tweak, as I mentioned in my post http://forums.mydigitallife.net/threads/38137-Ahci-win8-pro-x64?p=647662&viewfull=1#post647662

    You're wrong. I have Intel Mobile Express Chipset, my chipset is Intel HM55. When installing with AHCI enabled, the installation goes well, but after restarting it BSODs. The method I mentioned doesn't require you to do registry tweak. I tested it on 3 laptops and are working great.

    Please do NOT admit that YOU knows better what I had done on more than 20 Desktop computer's! Or did you? And just curious, we were talking about AHCI on Desktops and NOT Laptops which is quite a difference!
