how to set Configure AHCI in the BIOS

7 posts in this topic

I heard that using the AHCI option can increase the hard drive's performance, so i wanna test it, but i do not how it works

MY PC OS is Win7 , the hard drive is Renice mSATA SSD .So the questions is:

Should i install additional drivers/software from Renice to use AHCI or anything else

thanks in advance

Chances are you are already using the drive in AHCI mode by default. What system are you running? Intel or AMD?

first step, check your bios

there various bios setting, but look for SATA port -> the option usually : IDE/AHCI/RAID

if it set on AHCI, then your system running on AHCI

you don't need to install driver, because most of time it will use windows driver

if you drive plugged on intel chipset, you can try install intel RST (rapid storage technology) see if you got some performance incrase, but i don't think it will increase drive performance (realtime usage) because mostly that things is for RAID set-up

It depends on what is controller did you use. It will show big differnece on Sandforce controller with AHCI mode. Renice mSATA SSD takes on Sandforce controller, so, it should be have some difference on AHCI MODE.

Some folks with SandForce based drives have found switching from IDE to ACHI has resolved BSOD issues and also improved SSD performance to meet advertised claims.
