    I am trying to install the AHCI drivers for XP on a Tecra A11;

    I have a ghost image that loads on this laptop under compatibility mode in the BIOS and am trying to update the driver for the disk controller to AHCI, reboot & change the disk mode to AHCI in the BIOS.

    This is what I normally do for the HP laptops we have and it works most times.

    The Storage drivers Toshiba supply are in the form of an executable which will only run if you have AHCI enabled, how is anybody running in compatibility mode supposed to use these?
    They don't even extract to driver files you can use just .cab files & an installer.

    In Device Manager under IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers I currently have listed;

    Intel (R) 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset Family 2 port Serial ATA Storage Controller - 3B2D
    Intel (R) 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset Family 4 port Serial ATA Storage Controller - 3B28
    Primary IDE Channel
    Primary IDE Channel
    Secondary IDE Channel
    Secondary IDE Channel
    & 3 entries for the Richo card reader

    The Intel drivers I have downloaded from -

    http://downloadcenter.intel.com/confirm.aspx?httpDown=http://downloadmirror.intel.com/21730/eng/f6flpy-x86.zip&lang=eng&Dwnldid=21730&DownloadType=Driver s&OSFullname=Windows+XP++*

    ...and this gives me this list of controllers to chose from;

    Intel (R) 5 Series 4 Port SATA AHCI Controller
    Intel (R) 5 Series 6 Port SATA AHCI Controller
    Intel (R) 5 Series/3400 Series SATA AHCI Controller
    Intel (R) 7 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller
    Intel (R) 7 Series/C216 Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller
    Intel (R) Desktop/Workstation/Server Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller
    Intel (R) ICH10D/DO SATA AHCI Controller
    Intel (R) ICH10R SATA AHCI Controller
    Intel (R) ICH7M/MDH SATA AHCI Controller
    Intel (R) ICH9M-E/M SATA AHCI Controller
    Intel (R) Mobile Express Chipset SATA AHCI Controller

    The device ID for the controller (Intel (R) 5 Series/3400 Series Chipset Family 4 port Serial ATA Storage Controller - 3B28) I am trying to install the AHCI drivers on is;
    PCI\VEN_8086&DEV_3B28&SUBSYS_00011179&REV_06\3&115 83659&0&FA

    Please can somebody tell me which of these to use with the hardware above?

    It is taking me ages to build, install, bluescreen & rebuild to try again....

    Success! The driver to use is...

    Intel (R) 5 Series 4 Port SATA AHCI Controller

    After a couple reboots the device now shows up as;

    Intel (R) 5 Series 4 Port SATA AHCI Controller

    ...and all the other IDE & SATA entries have been replaced with this one.

    You would have thought it would be the - Intel (R) 5 Series/3400 Series SATA AHCI Controller - but that would be too easy :D

    Hope this helps others struggling with this problem ;)

    (Toshiba, would it be too much trouble to add this to your support page for this model? XP is still the OS of choice for many organizations.)
