Enable ACHI mode in BIOS?

Q: Enable ACHI mode in BIOS?

Hey all,
I'm new here so just so ya'll know I'm Jason. Anyways, I'm working on trying to create a Hackintosh (yes, it is possible on AMD) but it requires you to change your HD to ACHI mode. I looked in the BIOS and there is no options. Any Ideas?

Preferred Solution: Enable ACHI mode in BIOS?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi.

Just unboxed an NB10-A and applied our standard policy of setting a supervisor password on the bios.
Now when I enter the bios setup during boot it defaults to non-supervisor mode and I can find no way to get it to prompt me for the password to allow me to make changes.
Does anyone know what I'm overlooking? All options are greyed out and I can't make it ask me for a password.

Cheers

A:Satellite NB10 - enable BIOS supervisor mode?

> Now when I enter the bios setup during boot it defaults to non-supervisor mode and I can find no way to get it to prompt me for the password to allow me to make changes.

Usually if the supervisor password has been set, you can access the BIOS pressing F2 button.
Now you have to insert the Supervisor Password or you can proceeds with limit access to different BIOS options by pressing the F11 button.

If you have inserted the right supervisor password, you could delete it again in the BIOS security tab.
Usually you have to insert the right supervisor password and have to press ENTER twice just to delete it. Then save the changes

Here an short description what the supervisor password does.

Hi, I recently purchased P53s in Windows 10. I've been trying to dual boot with Ubuntu but the computer doesn't recognize the SSD when booting with a flash drive. In bios, I can't find a place for changing the SATA mode to AHCI (no sata configuration). Should I update the bios? Please let me know what to do. Thanks!

I'm trying to run an HD repair software during boot but it won't continue as my HD is in ACHI mode. The only way I can run it is to change it to IDE mode.I tried going into BIOS to change this setting but I don't see any option to change it at all! There isn't even an Advanced Setup option in BIOS.

I had a friend help install windows, back then I was clueless about the whole deal with achi and ide. A while later, I had to switch hard drives just to run some tests, and the computer wouldnt but, even after putting the original back in.

Turns out BIOS had set itself to ACHI, not allowing windows to boot. Switching it to IDE made it work.

Now I bought an SSD, and its not quite detecting. Im also hearing ACHI is much faster than IDE, so I want to just spend time and switch over.


How would I go about reinstalling windows as ACHI? I have an installation disk and everything. I've already started backing up files to leave the boot disk empty and ready to roll.

A:Reinstalling windows as ACHI mode

AHCI isn't much faster than IDE mode. I belive that it's required to use some features (like TRIM with an SSD).

You may be able to switch without re-installing Windows:

Error message occurs after you change the SATA mode of the boot drive

If you need to re-install Windows after all, switch the SATA controller to AHCI mode in the BIOS settings. Then install Windows. You shouldn't need any drivers other than those included in the Windows installation. You may want to use the Intel chipset driver package that's most appropriate to your motherboard, but you can do that any time.

Hey everyone!

Just had a question. I installed windows 8 in ACHI mode in the bios to get the added performance and what not and its proved to be even smoother than IDE mode.

Now I have two IDE hard drives that i'm not using because i'm waiting for windows 8 drivers for my PCI/PCIe Sata/IDE controller card and its not built-in into my motherboard as I just bought it brand new.

So my question is, having it in ACHI mode, can it conflict with my IDE drives? so what if I decide to use my PCI/PCIe sata/ide controller card?

I have one PCI sata/ide card that does not have a bios built in from VIA and a PCIe JMicron sata/ide controller and it has a bios built in.

I just want to try and avoid any complications that would have to make me somehow re-install windows 8. I just got it the way I want it to be

I have a 2tb raid 10 (4 drives) on my MSI x58 PRO-E (ich10r) motherboard that i created in raid mode, but i changed the mode from raid to ACHI for something else and forgot to change back before enabling the drives and booting, and now its telling me it cant even find two of the drives and that its lost, even with raid mode enabled again. I had a raid 1 enabled too that was fine, i cant lose the info on these drives, theres hundreds of hours of project files on there, how can i recover them?
 

A:Put computer in ACHI mode, now RAID10 is degraded, help!

If it is that important to you, take the drives to a shop that does data recovery. Note this is NOT cheap; where I live something like this would start at $125 or so and go way up from there.

Another option is to install a spare drive [not part of the array] controller in raid mode. Since you have 7 sata ports on that board it should not be a problem. Install windows on the spare drive. Install the intel RST [rapid storage tech] Have it scan the array and mark the drives as good or functional. You should now have access to the data files on the array.

This is why I stress that raid of any type is NOT a backup plan. Remember data that you do not backup is data you do not care about. Raid is hardware redundant only; it does nothing for a corrupted driver install, virus, malware, etc. Every error is mirrored.

Hey guys, first post. I've been having a a lot of computer problems the past 3 weeks and it's really gotten old. 3 weeks ago, after coming home from vacation, I plugged in my desktop and it wouldn't turn on. It had a light on the back of the case and a light on the motherboard, but that was it. I took it to the tech department at my high school and we tested the psu with a multimeter and found that it had power and then went on to test virtually every other component and decided that it was the motherboard. I ordered a new one-the exact same model I'd had-and it still wouldn't turn on. We grabbed an old power supply and all of a sudden we had take off. However, the hard drive started making that clicking noise that is rapidly followed by death and, low and behold, it won't go past the dual boot screen. So I grabbed an old hd with xp on it and tried to boot into it. It made it to the first screen but froze. I grabbed a Linux cd and tried to replace xp but every time I turn on the computer I get this error message "AHCI BIOS not installed!" and it boots straight to the hd even when I change the boot order to load Linux. When I unplug the hard drive, I still get the error message, but the cd loads fine. I have a Dell Inspiron 518, nVidia 9600 gt, 2 gb ddr2 Ram, 350 watt power supply (the fresh one; the old one was 300w) 250gb hd dual booted windows 7 and vista.

Hello, I am trying to activate Intel Optane memory on my S145. I have correctly installed the memory (the PC recognizes it) and I have installed the Intel RST program. However, the Intel RST program does not show the "Optane" tab as an option in the program. I'm pretty sure this is because I don't have "RST" set as the controller in the BIOS. My issue is that when I change the controller in the BIOS from "ACHI" to "RST" and save and reboot, when I look at the BIOS again, it has reverted back to "ACHI". I have tried changing other BIOS values to attempt to stop this from happening to no avail. Does anyone know how I can make my BIOS change stick through a reboot? Thank you.

Looks like you're gonna stay a virgin, cause that ain't no high-end video card you got there.

Now on to the real topic. I'm not quite sure what you are saying as regards enabling VGA mode. All you need to do is make sure you disable any onboard vga chip in the bios (because you are using an add-on video card), and that's it. Your PC should boot and video should eminate from your card. Pressing F8 during boot simply allows you to select 'safe mode', which is normally used when you are experiencing problems such as misbehaving drivers. You shouldn't need to do this at all normally.

A:Can't enable hibernate mode

Hey there!                      Thank you for visiting the HP Forums! A great place where you can find solutions for your issues with help from the community!I understand that you have issues putting your PC in hibernation mode. Difference between sleep mode and hibernation: Sleep ModeSleep mode is a power saving state that is similar to pausing a DVD movie. All actions on the computer are stopped, any open documents and applications are put in memory while the computer goes into a low-power state. The computer technically stays on, but only uses a bit of power. You can quickly resume normal, full-power operation within a few seconds. Sleep mode is basically the same thing as ?Standby? mode.Sleep mode is useful if you want to stop working for a short period of time. The computer doesn?t use much power in Sleep mode, but it does use some.HibernateHibernate mode is very similar to sleep, but instead of saving your open documents and running applications to your RAM, it saves them to your hard disk. This allows your computer to turn off entirely, which means once your computer is in Hibernate mode, it uses zero power. Once the computer is powered back on, it will resume everything where you left off. It just takes a bit longer to resume than sleep mode does (though with an SSD, the difference isn?t as noticeable as it is with traditional hard drives).Use this mode if you won?t be using your lapt...

So my question is...Is after i verify that the user has the right password, instead of enabling the shift key is there any other way of opening the program in design mode? that is bringing the Access Db window??

Hi all, I have just read a very enlightening article in PC Magazine concerning SP2 Security Center Spoofing Threat - http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,1759,1639276,00.asp The article says, essentially, that the XP Firewall could possibly be spoofed by malicious script which would tell it to "open the door" for an attack. I am probably not doing the article justice so please read it, as well as Microsoft's response.I am running XP Pro on one machine only. I am set as the Administrator and the only user. The article says, in part:"...The one mitigating factor that we found is that to change the WMI, and spoof the Security Center, the script has to be running in Administrator mode. If executed in Windows XP's Limited Mode, it will give an error, and not allow changes. Unfortunately, most home users who will be at risk, run in the default administrator mode."[The question(s) part:] What are the advantages/disadvantages of running XP Pro for a single user in Limited Mode?

Your USB controller driver should load normally in Safe Mode. If not look in Device Manager to see if it is detected and in error. If so uninstall it in Dev Mgr, reboot into Safe Mode to see if it loads.

Otherwise install it from the Support Downloads webpage for your model PC, probably contained in chipset.

I am fairly computer literate. I am running WinXP on an AMDK7/600mHz machine with plenty of memory and harddrive space. When I added SP2 to WinXP, among some other things the AutoProtect Mode in my NAV 2003 application appears permanently disabled; even though I have gone through all the enabling steps (NAV Options), AutoProtect won't run. I have run a complete NAV scan, both from my application and from the Symantec site. I also regularly run updated versions of SpybotS&D, Pest Patrol (plus the full suite of PP products like MemCheck, Clean, etc), Ad-Aware (6.0 Plus) and HijackThis (1.98.2). I have scoured the Symantec and other KnowledgeBases for details on AutoProtect not running, but I've either tried all the remedies--except uninstalling, then reinstalling NAV--or the suggested remedy does not fit my situation.

As I've discovered, NAV is very difficult to uninstall; the reinstall is likewise difficult, even if it's an Upgrade and NAV detects any remnants of the previous version. I've even had problems upgrading to a brand-new licensed program (such as when I installed NAV 2003). So I've tried to avoid the NAV uninstall/reinstall "solution" 'cause it's seems to be so difficult.

My apologies if this has been dealt with before. I've spent days trying to get a Belkin F5U005 USB 2 Port USB card to work in conjunction with:

Windows 98se

Processor
Model : AMD-K6(tm) 3D processor
Speed : 351MHz
Performance Rating : PR351 (estimated)
Type : Standard

Mainboard
Bus(es) : ISA AGP PCI USB i2c/SMBus
MP Support : No
MP APIC : No
System BIOS : Award Software International, Inc. 4.51 PG
System : System Manufacturer Product Name
Mainboard : First International Computer, Inc. VA-503+

Chipset 1
Model : VIA Technologies Inc VT82C597/597AT/598MVP Apollo VP3/MVP3 System Controller
L2 External Cache : 1024kB Pipeline-Burst Write-Thru
Front Side Bus Speed : 1x 100MHz (100MHz data rate)
Total Memory : 64MB SDRAM
Memory Bus Speed : 1x 100MHz (100MHz data rate)

Windows froze on the first attempt to install. After a lot of online research I found that this was a clock mismatch problem and I got it to install after downloading a fix which was supposed to be unnecessary with 98se.

I took every reference I could find to USB out of Device Manager, took the card out manually, restarted, shut down, put the card back in, started up and it installed normally.

The USB OPTi 82C861 PCI to USB Open Host Controller and
USB Root Hub are now showing normal in Universal Serial Bus Controllers in the Device Manager. No yellow exclamation marks are anywhere in the Device Manager.

The Award Bios shows USB Controller Disabled in Integrated Peripherals ... Read more

A:USB won't enable in Award BIOS

Normally, your USB BIOS would only be required to allow BOOTing a USB HD.

Your Belkin USB is not accessed at BOOT time, so stop fussing with BIOS.

If you have modem-->router setup, then the drivers are not required at all!

Use the Modem->Router using Ethernet cable and from the router->pcs as well.

Otherwise, modem-->pc(USB connected) requires a driver.

Does this clarify/help?

When I try to download Android Studios this pops up:

So when I went to the BIOS to enable it, there was no setting there for it. I am running Windows 10 on my Acer Aspire 5755G - 6823 with an Intel i5 - 2430M @2.4GHz. I even downloaded the Intel(R) Processor Identification Utility app and it says that it's supported on my device. Any help would be much appreciated! Thanks in advance!

A:Can't find where to enable VT-x in BIOS

It's possible it has some other name on your BIOS, like "Virtualization Technology" or "Intel Virtualization Feature". It's usually under the CPU or maybe even Motherboard settings.
