With AHCI enabled, system restore doesn't work properly
When I reinstalled Vista Ultimate, I turned on AHCI in the Bios to support my SATA hard drive, Now I notice that System Restore is unable to find any available drives. Tried turning off AHCI, running it in IDE mode, and Sys Restore was able to find a drive. Doesn't Vista Ultimate fully support AHCI and SATA? If it does, what's up? Thanks.

Hi Tom,

this is not exactly your problem but seems somewhat related..

Quote:
This issue occurs if the AHCI driver (Msahci.sys) in Windows Vista is disabled. This driver must be enabled before you change the SATA mode of the boot drive.
see Error message when you start a Windows Vista-based computer after you change the SATA mode of the boot drive: "STOP 0x0000007B INACCESSABLE_BOOT_DEVICE"

regards

Steve
