I need support to install an XP SP2 in AHCI mode on a SSD:
- SSD Sandisk 256GB controller SandForce;
- Asus K75DE laptop with AMD APU and mobo;
- Asus CH5 mobo with FX8320;
a) direct method - I have tried the F6 method with a floppy, even if the ahcix86.sys driver is recognised by OS at startup it is not recognised and installed by the OS, before starting to copy the files;
b) by-pass method - I found on web another type of install with installation of XP in EIDE mode, installation of ahciX86 driver, registry related update, switch in BIOS AHCI mode - problem: the AMD driver is not recognised as driver by the OS.
I have tried the indirect method with an Intel mobo, works flawlessly.
Could you indicate and give me an AMD chipset driver to allow me to use for the laptop XP in AHCI mode. I have used the drivers found on AMD site and several mobo producers: Asus, Gigabyte, etc.
Having the same problem with the desktop, clearly indicates me the driver is the problem. I have also installed SP3 before making the trials under option b).
Thank you in advance
