Intel Desktop board D945GCNL supports sata AHCI for SSD ?

Dear all,

I ordered a SSD from crucial (m500, 240GB) and I would like to know if my Intel Desktop board D945GCNL supports sata AHCI ?

 

Notes:

1. The SSD is not in my possesion yet, and it is currently not installed in my system.

2. My OS is Windows 7 Ultimate, 64bit.

I have checked in general in Crucial.com that this board is compatible with this spesific SSD.

Moreover, I ran microsoft Fix for TRIM which basically changes the following REGEDIT values of Start from 3 to 0:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\IastorV and then verified it is working via the following command in cmd (which returned 0, meaning it's OK):Fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify

So overall it looks as if the TRIM function that windows 7 offers should work,

But the BIOS does NOT show a AHCI option, only Native!

(after of course I rebooted my pc a couple of times after the above mentioned steps)

More info about my MB:

So I'll greatly appreciate an answer whether I will be able to use the TRIM function even though my AHCI isn't chosen in the BIOS ?

Thanks everybody!
