Hi - I'm new to this so please treat me gentle!!
Did you get a a solution to your problem?
I ask because I have an old Acer 4710Z running Win7 Ultimate that I wanted to put an intel 520 60GB in.
The bios says it has ACHI option but there appears to be no driver for this for Win7.
I tried windows transfer to SSD (OK) but after start windows on SSD evrything just grinds to a halt and impossible to use. (Tried both with bios @ ACHI and IDE).
You state you hace SSD working on Acer in IDE mode - any thoughts on why I cant get mine to work? (I just want to speed up this old machine).
Thanks for any help....
