    nForce 630i SATA AHCI mode - Cannot use MSAHCI driver


    System is Packard Bell Imedia S3720 with the infamous nForce 630i chipset. I don't know why but I cannot use MSAHCI driver. Computer enters a loop and doesn't work well. With SATA nForce driver it works but it seems unstable at best (and also trim function dissappeared from Defragmenter).

    Any ideas?

    IDE mode in bios works perfectly but I have an SSD.

    :)

    nForce 630i SATA AHCI mode - Cannot use MSAHCI driver

    Windows boot manager doesn't recognize AHCI/SATA SSD

    This is not the case as the BIOS doesn't recognize disk in AHCI but Windows is already configured with msahci driver.

    As BIOS can't boot it directly because it doesn't see SATA disk so I would like to have a helper bootloader which boots from USB and then chain loads windows from SATA drive. HP will not help as the PC is out of warranty and the bug in BIOS won't be fixed.
