SOURCE: I need to enable AHCI

Hi Jordan,
You should be able to access your BIOS setting when you first turn on the pc. The first screen you see will tell you (briefly) to push either the Esc button, or F8, F12 to access the BIOS setup. Once your in the BIOS you may have to hunt down the control your looking for but the options are not that many and you should be able find it within a few minutes. Word of warning, by changing settings in the BIOS, you can cause your pc to act much differently or not even boot up correctly. So if you enable the Advanced Host Controller Interface (AHCI) and it does not act like you want it to, you can always change it back.
Hope this helps

I have toshiba satellite L505-S5990 model.i have installed windows xp by changing the settings in Bios that is sata hard disk enabled as compatable mode from AHCI.if i change to AHCI i can't install...


If you would like to make use of the SATA controller's AHCI features, you should enable this BIOS feature. But please note that enabling this feature requires you to load the SATA controller driver during the Windows XP installation routine.
If you do not intend to use the AHCI features, it's recommended that you disable this BIOS feature. This allows you to use the native Windows XP driver. You won't need to load the SATA controller driver during the Windows XP installation routine.

Error while trying to install windows xp Stop: 0x0000007B on a dell Optiplex sx270


The most popular Blue Screen of Death error in Windows is the STOP 0x0000007B error, sometimes called the 0x7b error or the "INACCESSIBLE BOOT DEVICE" BSOD.
This BSOD (which is actually the common name for a STOP Error) could mean that there's a serious hardware problem with a hard drive controller, a driver issue, or even a boot sector virus.
In your case though, this is most likely one of 4 capacitors that are known to blow out on any SX270. Slide the bar at the back of your PC to the remove cover side and look inside for swollen caps. Remove the fans and cpu cover as well and check around there. Replace any bad ones you can find with old caps borrowed from an old motherboard if you have one, or new ones from any decent electronics parts warehouse. This fix has worked for me on every SX270 I have ever had.

OK try this, go to the bios and disable the AHCI, and change it to the alternative which is ATA?. The PC should now boot up perfectly fine. See if I can re-enable the AHCI once you install all the dell drivers properly in the Windows OS.
