    Enable AHCI controller in ICH7-M/U, 945 Chipset


      I installed XP Pro sp3 on my Compaq Presario V3000 laptop by Disabling the SATA Native Support in the BIOS (v. F39).

      Now I want to enable the AHCI controller so that I can install the SATA driver for my internal HDD.

      I have 945 chipset and ICH7-M/U southbridge.

      The problem is that ACHI controller does not show in my (updated) BIOS.

      Does ICH7-M/U have an AHCI controller, and if so, how can I enable it.

      I have the full "Speccy", it the above is not enough info.

      Thanks Eddie
