    IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers issue

    Girotel

      Hello,

       

      Hope this is the correct section to post this ?

       

      I have a Intense PC Pro which displays the following behavior:

       

      In the bios I have configured the option to boot SSD hard-disk with AHCI (legacy mode).

       

      During the first cold boot of the bios the windows device manager shows the following devices in Windows 7 X64 (Windows 8 X64 and Windows XP are the same) :

       

      IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers

      - ATA Channel 0 

      - ATA Channel 1

      - Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller (hardware Ids PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E3C&SUBSYS_72708086&REV_04)

      - Standard SATA AHCI Controller (hardware Ids PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E03&SUBSYS_72708086&REV_04)

       

      When I do a warm reboot the Standard Dual Channel PCI IDE Controller is gone (like it should be because I choose AHCI in bios)

       

      The windows device manager then shows the following:

       

      IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers

      - Standard SATA AHCI Controller (hardware Ids PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_1E03&SUBSYS_72708086&REV_04)

       

       

      This does not seem like normal behavior ?

       

       

      I posted this issue on the site off the pc vendor and got the following response:

       

      "This is a driver related issue. Because this is Intel's a closed source driver, we are unable to modify it."

       

      I asked of this could be fixed, and got the following response:

       

      "Good Day girotel

       

      After several tests, there was not seen any performance differences between both of the cases. We will submit this issue to Intel.

       

      Thank you for reporting.

       

      Thank you."

       

       

      Is there a way to solve this behavior ?
