Hi Everyone -Having an interesting issue where if AHCI is enabled in the bios for SATA ports, every time the system is rebooted, new /dev/sdX letters are assigned randomly. So my /dev/... [by raphk]
Simon, I followed your steps and now I am left an Intel IC7R/DH SATA AHCI Controller and a Standard Dual Channel PCI/IDE Controller, plus a primary and secondary IDE channel. I have changed the bios to AHCI, and the machine boots up ok, but when I try to change the other controller over to AHCI, I get no joy (BSOD). I am trying to get my SSD to be seen so I can image my HD.
I recently setup my Haswell-E system. This system includes four 1TB Samsung EVO drives in RAID-0 volume mounted to a directory created on my system drive, a 256GB Samsung 850 Pro. The array was created in the Intel RAID BIOS after enabling RAID operation on SATA ports 0-5.
So my plan to build up a Dell Latitude D820 fell thru because AHCI is not supported for SSDs(something about use of a SATA to PATA bridge). I am working on a Compaq Presario CQ60 running Vista. I did a fresh install awhile ago on a new drive. In the BIOS, changing the SATA controller is not available.
I have installed Fedora 18 on a HP envy h8-1520t(EFI system). I could only get it to install/boot with secure boot disabled.
However the bigger problem is that if SATA emulation in EFI is set to "ahci" (as opposed to "ide") it hangs with the message "Loading inital ramdisk" The installation was done with SATA emulation set to "ahci".
Hi, I've been working with the tech support guys that i bought this workstation/server through and have reached a problem. I'll attach the lspci -vv output, but the gist of the problem is that if I set the BIOS to show the drives as IDE the OS sees 5 drives, plus the cd-rom.
I installed windows & forgot to change my Samsung SSD from iDE to AHCI in bios. I followed the registry steps to change values to 0 then change the IDE to AHCI in bios but whenever I go to samsung Magician software it says under system information AHCI deactivated? Why does it say deactivated if I followed all the steps to activate it, can anyone help with this issue?
