    Intel Storage Manager (AHCI) and Windows 7 32bit not working

    Lycidas

      Hello,

       

      my System is an

      Acer Aspire 8930g 583g32Bn (yes, it is old)

      NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS

      Intel Centrino Duo
      Chipset Intel PM965 Express

      Processor Intel Core 2 Duo T5800 / 2 GHz
      Multi-Core-Technology 800 MHz
      Databus-Speed 800 MHz
      Cache L2 - 2 MB
      RAM max 4 GB

      2 x 1 TB HDD

      The problem is, I bought a new 1 TB HDD and installed Windows 7 Professional 32bit.
      Everything is working fine, it is using the msahci driver, but I see my both 1 TB in the tasktray as removeable drives.

      Then I installed the AHCI Intel SATA AHCI Driver 8.9.0.1023 (ISM) 21.4 MB 2009/09/29 and the remove safely was away,
      but I couldn't use Windows 7 Update anymore and the Internet Explorer 11 is slowing down and no download is possible.

      So I deinstall the AHCI Intel SATA AHCI Driver 8.9.0.1023 and everything was set on normal again, but...
      I see now my both 1TB HDD in the tasktray as removeable drives again. There's no effect when I click on remove safely.

      How can I use the AHCI Intel SATA AHCI Driver 8.9.0.1023 21.4 MB 2009/09/29 and using the Windwows 7 stuff without any Problems?

      I don't want a RAID-System.
      Or is there an other AHCI Driver from Intel to use Windows 7 again.
      Or any other suggestions?

       

      Thanks in advance!
