Hello Folks!

I just bought an Samsung 840 SSD for my older Samsung R70 (OS win7/32). The Laptop uses a ICH8M / 965 Chipset. Although i can adjust the BIOS on an Kind of AHCI "Auto" mode, Every try to install modded AHCI Drivers resulted in an BSOD while booting up.
There is a note in Bios, that AHCI will run, if there is "Turbo Memory" detected by the System (which i do not have). Is this the reason, that Win7 crashes on boot-up?

It would be great if i could use AHCI, instead of the actual IDE mode.

What are my mistakes ?

Best regards,
Steve

See if you have a option in BIOS to turn ON or OFF Turbo.

If you can install windows, DON'T try an add any driver when you install, If you not try add driver, then TRY an add different driver at install.

If you try add driver, and she BSOD at reboot, then you need to try a different version, mostly older version, the driver will cause BSOD.



P.S. Turbo memory Intel, The technology attempts to decrease hard drive usage by moving frequently accessed data over to the flash memory. Flash memory can be accessed faster than hard drives and requires less power to operate, thereby allowing laptops to operate faster while also being more power efficient. The Turbo memory cache connects to a motherboard via a mini-PCIe interface. It supports features available in Microsoft Windows Vista, namely ReadyBoost (a hard-drive caching solution via flash memory) and ReadyDrive (a hard-drive caching solution via hybrid drives). These features allow both read caching and write caching of data. Often this is implemented with a Disk Filtering Option ROM (DFOROM).

Thanks for answering :)

I just went into my (Phoenix) Bios. The actual Version is 15AB (2008). under "AHCI Mode Control" i just can check whether "Disabled" or "Auto" (Enable AHCI if Intel Turbo Memory is detected). My SDD is detected as 250GB SATA1.
I tried all of Fernandos modded (AHCI) Drivers, from new to old. When i tried the complete Install package with the exe-file, there Popped up an message, that the System does not fulfill the requirements.

Any other ideas ?

Thanks!

You must have turbo modal, don't install driver an Don't enable ACHI, and try install Turbo Memory software package, then after you install the software open the program and enable READY BOOST, READY DRIVE, then try and enable ACHI in BIOS and install driver. *** after reboot of install software.

Hi and Thanks!

Same Problem: System does not meet the Minimum requirements for installing the Turbo Memory Software :(
Tried both Versions available on Intel downloadsection. Is there a modded Version (of Turbo Memory Software) available, also?

My current controler seems to be an ICH8M 3 port Serial ATA controler 2828.

Greets,
Steve

@ Moorfowl:

Before it is forgotten: Welcome at Win-RAID Forum!
Since I don't have any experience with the "Turbo Memory Software", I cannot help you personally, but odiebugs has given you already some advices.

Check the maker of your laptop for the software and see if same as what you downloaded from Intel, if same, then send a email to the MFG of laptop, tell them that turbo is not allowing the AHCI, they should be able to make you a BETA BIOS with the Turbo not installed. Tell them the problem, hope they can help you.

Hi,
i've just signed up to say "Fernando, you are a superstar"
i have been trying to 'persuade' windows server 2003 on my new asus g750 notebook to run as ahci.
didnt manage to install with any slipstreamed drivers under ahci so just installed as ide.
i have tried many combinations of intel driver files but your ones worked great.
i had to select the first disk (i have 2 internal ssd's) and load your driver
then disable the second
reboot
answer 'add new hardware' and install then the drivers the same for the second one.

p.s. what i did notice, when i checked the inf file, you have added tabs. i changed them back to spaces. not sure if that matters

Which version did you use?

Which "tabs" do you mean?

Hi, i tried a few from direct intel download site and also some modified by a german user. sorry i cant remember exactly which. as soon as your ones worked i deleted all the others.
by "tabs" i mean tab as in the tab key on the keyboard. there was a mixture of spaces and tabs in the inf file. like i said, not sure if it would be a problem but for consistancy you should use all spaces or all tabs (speaking from long experience with database and unix files)
my server 2003 (32bit) is slowly being dragged into the 21st century ;)
now i only need a proper driver for my nvidia gtx 770m...
thanks again

If you got them at MSFN Forum, this "German user" was me.

Although I doubt, that such modification within the .INF file (it's just a text and no hex code) has any impact on the installation or function of the driver, I would rather like to know, which part of the INF file entries you mean.

What happened to downloads? All download link are down...

AFAIK only the links to the modded Intel RST drivers v11.2.0.1006 are dead, because I have done some modifications with the INF and OEM files.
Within the next 2 minutes they will be up again.

Regards
Fernando

EDIT: All Mirror links are working now, but the MEGA ones not yet (seems to be a problem with the MEGA server).

HI, ok, just found the file and it was actually not the inf files but the txtsetup.oem from ''Universal 32bit Intel RST AHCI & RAID driver v11.2.0.1006 mod by Fernando.7z''
e.g. line 20 'iaAHCI_8AHCI = "Intel(R) ICH8 SATA AHCI Controller (added by Fernando)'' has a mix of tabs and spaces.
i opened the files in ultraedit just to see what the file did having tried several others and failed.
the most important thing is its working now ;)
i have also installed windows xp the same way.

@ gazzacbr:
Thanks for your reply and for the info. To be honest I have never modified text files by using a hex editor, because the digital signature has been lost anyway.

Did you replace the mix of tabs and spaces or did it work without any correction? That means: Has the mix of tabs and spaces any negative impact on the installation procedure?
Nevertheless I have customized the TXTSETUP.OEM files according your advice.

Thanks again!
Fernando
