  1. You have to install the driver file first else it will not help.EDIT: Okay! So it worked after all, congratulations . EDIT2: Could you post your BIOS setting please so I can add them to the first post in this topic. BIOS picture attached.
  2. Please see the attachment. The only question I have is how to fix the PCI installation problem using the IAAHCI.INF driver. Manual Install what? I assume "IDE/ATAPI controllers", then "standard dual channel pci ide controller" Then Browse to IAAHCI.INF and choose it? Is this correct? I will post my BIOS settings for you when I get a chance.
  3. I have a P35 Chipset and this is the procedure that worked for me even though bios doesn't say enhanced only AHCI. 1. Downloaded Newest Intel® Matrix Storage Manager for my board. 2. Command Prompt ran c:\anyfolder\filename.exe /a 3. Copied IaStor.sys from \Program Files\Intel\Intel Matrix Storage Manager\Drivers folder to C:\Windows\System32\drivers\ 4. Copied the following registry file into notepad and saved as ahci.reg 5. Double clicked newly created file to install to registry. 6. Reboot and change bios to AHCI 7. Double clicked on previously downloaded Intel® Matrix Storage Manager installer. And Rebooted. 8. Go to device manager, double klick your hard-drive(s) under "disk drivers", go to "policies" tab and mark "Enable write caching for this disk" _____________________________________________________________________________________ Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\CriticalDeviceDatabase\pci#ven_8086&dev_2922&cc_0106] "Service"="iaStor" "ClassGUID"="{4D36E96A-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\iaStor] "Type"=dword:00000001 "Start"=dword:00000000 "Group"="SCSI miniport" "ErrorControl"=dword:00000001 "ImagePath"="system32\\drivers\\iaStor.sys" "tag"=dword:00000019 "DisplayName"="Intel AHCI Controller" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\iaStor\Parameters] "queuePriorityEnable"=dword:00000000 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\iaStor\Enum] "0"="PCI\\VEN_8086&DEV_2922&SUBSYS_B0051458&REV_02\\3&13c0b0c5&0&FA" "Count"=dword:00000001 "NextInstance"=dword:00000001 ______________________________________________________________________
