Thank you.

It worked perfectly. I downloaded your .reg and merged it (double click on the downloaded file), then rebooted and changed the BIOS/CMOS settings to IDE ("Comparability" in some IBM computers, not IDE), saved the settings and rebooted the computer... and, that was it.

Thanks again.

Welcome all , so let me explain I installed Windows 7 With AHCI set from Bios , but after that i wanted to use ide (becose it boots faster) and when i set Ide from Bios , the windows 7 loading screan camed upp and BSOD (Blue screen of death) with an error code 0x0000005B , i tryed the regedit trick by setting in the "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESystemCurrentControlSetServicesMsahci" and then in the right pan the START value from 0 i set it to 1 and it supposed to be working but it was a failiure , it still did the Bsod and i was so pissed of , i wanted to make it work ... AND I DID IT !

Here are the pases :
1) I assume u have installed Windows Vista or Windows 7 with AHCI set from BIOS !
2) Download my registry fix (to add the ide keys to regeditor) simply apply the key
3) Now the manually regedit part Go to :

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE_System_CurrentControlSet_Services_Msahci
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE_System_CurrentControlSet_Services_iaStor
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE_System_CurrentControlSet_Services_iaStorV

And in thease three keys in the right pan u will find a key named "START" change at all three (Msahci,iaStor,iaStorV) values from 0 To 1
Now navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE_System_CurrentControlSet_Services_PciIde
,then change the start value to "0"

4) Now u are allmost done , restart your computer/laptop , and go to Bios and set from AHCI to IDE !!! , save settings in Bios and restart

5)Windows will be loading , and VOILA !!! NO BSOD !!! , windows Vista/Seven will install new Ide drivers and u will see in windows device manager that you dont have AHCI drivers anymore , u have Ide drivers !
6)It will prompt for another restart , just restart it and u will be happy ;)

Credits goes for ME ! ONLY ME !!!!! , i searched all the internet and i couldn`t find something like this , so i began from literally everything to everything , a LOT OF REBOOTS AND BSOD`s believe me it was a pain in the ass !
But i done it !, now im ussing Windows 7 With ide mode ...
Every article on the internet when i searched it sayd : Change from the Msahci the start key to 1 if u want to make it boot from ide , but no it is much much more !
For some people it works like that , for some people it doesn`t.

I hope u enjoyed my first tutorial here , sorry for my english , im from Romania , post your results please , for more questions feal free to ask me ;)

Have a verry happy nice day !!! :p:p:p:p

From page 1 I don't have the iastor key, but do have the other 2. Problem?
You shouldn't have an IaStor key if you have an AMD CPU or if you have an Intel CPU but don't have Intel Rapid storage Technology (IRST) installed.

I just registered as well to say a huge thank you for this.
I've had to transplant a drive into an old build as my mate's PC died so he's borrowing my old one.
It only has IDE mode for SATA and I was tearing my hair out.
This guide has solved my issues and it's now up and running beautifully!
Cheers from the UK \o/
