I ordered a SSD from crucial (m500, 240GB) and I would like to know if my Intel Desktop board D945GCNL supports sata AHCI ?
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\MsahciHKEY_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 ?
Your desktop board has Intel® I/O Controller Hub 7 (ICH7) but only the ICH7R, ICH7DH, and Mobile versions support AHCI.
That mean i have to change my motherboard again if i want to use sata drive.
