    Asus P5B-E board with single WD 750Gb SATA HDD. BIOS Main Page, IDE Config offers the option of IDE, AHCI, (and RAID) SATA configs. The default is IDE. Should I not set this for AHCI? IDE is to use the SATA drive as "Parallel ATA physical storage device." AHCI "allows the onboard storage driver to enable advanced Serial ATA features...."

    This sounds like a no-brainer, unless you try to analyze why IDE is set to default under "Configure SATA As [ ]. Anyone have a suggestion? tia

    I suppose I solved this myself. Good ol' Wikipedia! :cool:

    They should have renamed ACHI as BFN or Bad Fecundidating News.

    Don't even consider it unless working on a new Vaista install. Else the BSOD!
