  1. No doubt, AHCI Rulez!!! Testing in my mobo, Gigabyte P35 DS3-L, Seagate 3200.10 320gb Sata 2 16mb cache: Copying folder 793mb from partition to desktop: - Without AHCI, Sata drivers, Write cache enabled: 52 seg. - With AHCI, Intel Storage Manager drivers, Write cache disabled: 39 seg. A big difference, INMHO... The only drawback in AHCI mode is that i can't enabled write cache (is grayed out) Greetings from Spain
  2. NCQ will be automatically enabled if your drive supports it, in your case with a Seagate 320GB SATA (I presume a 7200.10 series drive) it will be automatically enabled.The write cashing always goes with a warning, you can loose data when your computer doesn’t close a session well or turns of suddenly. Curiosly, i check the "write caching" box in device manager to enable it and hit ok. Now, all the boxes in the "policies" tab dealing with write caching are greyed out and can't be checked. Also, the write caching box is now unchecked and I can't change this. Does this matter?Why did it grey out the boxes?
  3. Step one is only when you don’t have a floppy drive, you can also run the EXE file downloaded and edit/run it from there. Ok. Thank you very much friend, you're a master. It's works well Thank you, thank you again. Your online attention was amazing. Only a question... where is NCQ setting? and do you don't recommend me enable write cache in disk drives? My best regards.
