AHCI drivers for Vista x64 ultimate

Hi all,
I run hackintosh so I need to set the SATA to AHCI.
I installed XP PRO with no problem using the F6 Floppy drivers.

after that I installed vista x32 with the drivers from intel's web site with no problem.

Now I wanted to move and install a fresh copy of VISTA ULT x64bit

but I can't install the proper driver for it.

I dloaded the [FONT=Arial,helvetica]64-bit Floppy Configuration Utility for Intel® Matrix Storage Manager[/FONT][FONT=Arial,helvetica] (227KB) [/FONT][FONT=Arial,helvetica]8.2.0.100

Copied the driver to USB disk.

but when I tried to "LOAD DRIVER" during VISTA's install I loaded the ICH9 driver
After that I got the message "NO DRIVES WERE FOUND"

WTF?

Why am I having trouble installing the x64 version?
can anyone direct me to a proper driver for 82801IR controller - vista x64 driver!

damn!

BTW I did manage to install this Vista x64 in IDE mode...
HELP!

First thing, thanks for the quick replay.

I Guess I can install Vista x64 this way - but Isn't there a simple way to just load the proper AHCI driver during install (like I did in XP and Vista 32)?

I mean, its really awkward, to install in IDE mode - only to change it to AHCI after that.

Even more important - say I do have it your way - will my system be stable?
Will it affect the stability or performance?

Thanks! :)




Just follow the instructions on the Microsoft Knowledge Base page below. They will tell you to enable AHCI via a registry edit, then you reboot and turn on AHCI mode in the bios for your motherboard. I've done it this way many times and it works.

Error message when you start a Windows Vista-based computer after you change the SATA mode of the boot drive: "STOP 0x0000007B INACCESSABLE_BOOT_DEVICE"

You should be able to press F6 on your keyboard, and then it should ask you to install the driver, but make sure you have AHCI mode enabled in the bios, when you attempt this, as Microsoft will first install a generic AHCI driver.

I'm feeling stupid.

I gave up trying to load a AHCI driver during install.

So I said to myself lets try something else.

I just installed Vista x64 ult. sp1 in AHCI mode. without loading any driver.

Windows installed itself with no problem!

after the install I got the messsage "competability ICH9 issue" and a window popped to download the latest intel chipset driver.

I installed it - no prblm.

everything works great!
in AHCI mode.

Didn't need to load any driver at setup!

Thanks but I guess problem solved...!

You're welcome. It's good to see you got AHCI working, but for some reason my soundcard does not get along with AHCI.

Weird, do you run the latest sound drivers?

is it on board?
which board?
I don't see any connection between AHCI and Sound
Are you sure its an AHCI problem?!

It happens with both my HT Omega Claro or the onboard IDT 9247 7.1HD codec.

When running AHCI the sound stutters. I expierenced this on two ATI/ULI motherboards a couple of years ago, and it happens with AHCI on my board now.

I'm running the latest drivers, which is why I suspect the AHCI drivers are at fault. I have no problems when in IDE mode.

I went back to IDE long time ago. I don't really use or need hot plugging or NCQ. I suspect something in the AHCI drivers as causing what I expierenced, but I don't know what though.
