How to install the AHCI drivers after installing XP in IDE mode

So assuming you installed Windows XP in Ide MODE, but you would like XP be able to run in ACPI mode:

1st) Download the following drivers from the Intel site:
http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=2101&lang=eng

Nr. 1. “Intel Matrix Storage Manager iata82_cd.exe” (where 82 is the version nr. at moment from writing this)
Nr. 2. “f6flpy32″ (zip/rarfile) These one are the drivers you normally need for the “F6 mode” when you install
Windows XP.

2nd) Open file NR. 2. and extract the whole folder to wherever you like. Make sure you remember the location.
Copy from this folder file “IaStor.sys” to C:\windows\system32\

3rd) Copy the following registry file to your desktop (copy and paste it into notepad) and save as “ahci.reg” (Only copy-paste what is written in italic)

———————————————-
Code:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\CriticalDeviceDatabase\pci#ven_8086&dev_2922&cc_0106]
“Service”=”iaStor”
“ClassGUID”=”{4D36E96A-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}”
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\iaStor]
“Type”=dword:00000001
“Start”=dword:00000000
“Group”=”SCSI miniport”
“ErrorControl”=dword:00000001
“ImagePath”=”system32\\drivers\\iaStor.sys”
“tag”=dword:00000019
“DisplayName”=”Intel AHCI Controller”
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\iaStor\Parameters]
“queuePriorityEnable”=dword:00000000
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\iaStor\Enum]
“0″=”PCI\\VEN_8086&DEV_2922&SUBSYS_B0051458&REV_02\\3&13c0b0c5&0&FA”
“Count”=dword:00000001
“NextInstance”=dword:00000001

———————————————-

4th) Go to This Computer-> Properties -> Hardware -> Device manager.
Under IDE ATA/ATAPI-Controllers, right-click the first INTEL(R) Controller, and update the driver.
Manually install the driver!! Make sure in every step you choose yourself what drivers to install!!
Browse to the folder where you extracted file NR. 2.: “f6flpy32″.
Now choose the “iaAHCI.inf” to install. All the AHCI drivers will be installed now.

5th) Double check you’ve copied the IaStor.sys file as part of step 2. Now do the following:
Run the “ahci.reg ” file to add the entries into the registry.
Reboot the computer and enter the BIOS.
Change the setting for the on board Intel controller to AHCI, save and exit BIOS.
Boot into Windows

6th) Windows will startup because of the manually installed drivers in step 4.
Windows will find new hardware and install drivers automatically
(because you changed the original driver manually in step 4, windows wants to restore this driver).
Just ignore this and go to the Nr. 1. file: ” Intel Matrix Storage Manager iata82_cd.exe “.
This is a setup file. Run this setup and the “Intel Matrix Storage Manager” will install the complete AHCI-SATA driver.

After installation:

Restart!

God bless you all,

Sparkion
