I have an Intel DG965RY motherboard and a Seagate Sata 2 hard disk.
I installed the drive as my bootable drive using Windows XP Pro SP3. I did not use any F6 option etc.
I am not sure if this is installed correctly?
In the BIOS, the mode is 'IDE' rather than ACHI, as the BIOS had a note saying that AHCI would only work using the Vista operating system.
Is that correct???
However, I would like to take advantage of any performance gain that I might be able to get if the drive can be installed a different way.
I want to get the most performance I can from my SATA drive - can I use AHCI with one hard drive?
Is there a way to set this up to get more out of the drive?
Any help much appreciated.
