I think driver must be Intel 7 series / C216 Chipset SATA AHCI, but after load driver with F6 key when installing windows XP I get blue screen again:
We have changed drive from AHCI to IDE at BIOS, and now we can install Windows XP without problem and without F6 driver load. The system seems to go fine with Windows XP Pro.
We have installed SSD Toolbox and optimized ssd drive.
But I have doubts about the proper functioning of SSD drive with Windows XP as IDE instead of AHCI.
Thank you very much,
are you sure that WinXP doesn't require IDE, not AHCI?
I don't know. I get installed with xp only if configure drive as "IDE" at bios. If set as AHCI a get blue screen installing with F6 sata/ahci drivers supplied by intel.
My questions are:
1. Can install SSD drive as SATA/AHCI on windows XP? If not, why intell has AHCI drivers for windows XP?
2. Is it right to set the disk as IDE in the bios? Will this cause hard drive problems in the future?
Thank you very much.
Even though the support for this operating system is limited; we are trying to replicate the issue here.
We will let you know our finding on this.
At the moment we have 12 computers installed which work fine with Windows XP 32 bits and the disk configured as IDE. I hope that this disk configuration does not cause problems in the future.
Thank you very much
How do you install from USB External CDROM, USB Pen?
Did you slipstream any drivers into the Installation?
