Posted December 4, The specification includes a description of the interface between system software and the host controller hardware. My admittedly limited understanding of Intel’s Matrix Storage Manager driver is that it is primarily intended to support hardware firmware? All I came up with was this.

While I agree with the prev post pointing out that you can probably just trust what you see in device manager, another Windows option is to install one of the freeware hardware info programs such as for example PC Wizard.

I couldn’t seem to find out by googling.
Well I guess he didn’t think ahfi was all that necessary seeing as my HOWTO post whci a mere 5 posts down from the top in this section and has been near the top of this section since it was originally posted about a year ago.

My understanding based on working with non-Apple motherboards is that Windows 7 esh2 detects AHCI and installs the drivers for it when installing to a PC motherboard. But more to the point about this one is that the Intel Matrix storage manager refuses to install on a system that doesn’t meet the requirements of either having an Intel controller in RAID mode or an Intel controller in Esv2 mode.

how to enable NCQ on Intel ESB2 AHCI SATA controller/ST31000340NS
In this case I’m mostly just curious. It also has the ability to run a system report that will tell you if your devices support NCQ native command queuing.

Software interface functional behavior for moving data And I, on the other hand, would advise you to not try to fix what appears to not be broken I would expect it to work the same way on a Mac Pro and I’m surprised you’d have to do anything special.
The specification includes a description of the interface between system software and the host controller hardware. I’m ahi as to what chipset your Mac Pro uses and whether the Matrix drivers would even install on it.
I am running Win7 64bit without problem. The storage manager will not install on any Mac Pro that is booting without this hack, this is because it doesn’t find the right hardware for its drivers. Register a new account.
Question re AHCI Driver Install on Windows 7 – Boot Camp – InsanelyMac Forum

Advanced Host Controller Interface Specification
If Apple-MB is booting anything other xhci OSX it runs the emulated bios and that sets legacy mode ahcii then win7 installs legacy IDE mode drivers, if this hack is applied then it runs the emulated bios from apple and forces the controller to AHCI mode then starts to load win7 therefore win7 xhci AHCI mode drivers.
Licensing of the applicable draft version of the applicable specification level also defined in the contributors agreement will allow the implementation of compliant, discrete AHCI host controllers only. Preview Download View 1, In that legacy BIOS Apple decided to have the storage controller enter legacy mode as well, this would make the most sense at the time since Windows XP install disc did not include any AHCI drivers and they would need to be loaded via a floppy disk.
