  1. Thanks for the answer btw even that tool is unable to read the S.M.A.R.T. looks like I'll have to do without
  2. I was using IDE mode before and have only enables AHCI mode (i have never enabled RAID or used a raid configuration) http://img522.imageshack.us/i/dscn3627z.jpg/ http://img390.imageshack.us/i/dscn3623.jpg/ http://img408.imageshack.us/i/dscn3628.jpg/ http://img230.imageshack.us/i/dscn3632.jpg/ http://img408.imageshack.us/i/dscn3629v.jpg/ These are pictures i took from bios while AHCI is enables (changing back to IDE changed nothing anyway) i found no other options for RAID or AHCI in the BIOS and in windows i have absolutely no idea how to change RAID mode with AHCI Enabling SMART from bios made no difference whatsoever Thanks for the time and effort
  3. Copy file ahcix86.sys to system32\drivers. Import this reg settings REGEDIT4 [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\CriticalDeviceDatabase\pci#ven_1002&cc_0106] "Service"="ahcix86" "ClassGUID"="{4D36E97B-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ahcix86] "Type"=dword:00000001 "Start"=dword:00000000 "ErrorControl"=dword:00000001 "Tag"=dword:00000021 "ImagePath"="system32\\drivers\\ahcix86.sys" "Group"="SCSI Miniport" [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\ahcix86\Parameters\PnpInterface] "5"=dword:00000001Goto BIOS, set AHCI. Reboot. I am not sure about that, because the actual ATI AHCI/RAID drivers (download link) are dated 05/22/2009. So after I installed the drivers from Fernando 1's post according the guide of cdob, only exchanging x86 with x64, I managed to make my Win XP x64 boot with AHCI mode enabled in bios on my M3A H/HDMI mobo (BIOS version 1702) but the result was not what was expected. After the successful first boot it found new hardware and i pointed the driver folder for the AHCI driver and everything was installed correct after one more restart all was working normally, but i could not determine wether the hot swaping function is active nor NCQ or something went wrong. When i opened the device manager i found this: I managed to find info about Intell chipset systems and how windows recognizes drives there HERE but nothing like that appeared in my case. Also Everest and HD Tune could not read the hard drive smart info or thermal sensors. So what went wrong and how should i fix it?
