SATA2 & 3 Question for Intel M/B

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi.

Is there any M/B that we could set AHCI for the SATA3 Intel controller (for SSD) and RAID for the SATA2 Intel controller (for spinning disks)? I think most M/Bs in the market are Intel+Marvell M/B.

Just Curious,
AW

You can on any board as far as what I've read, baring bugs or manufacturer-specific limitations. Marvell controllers are used to provide SATA3 on X58, but on P67 you have ICH SATA3 and maybe in addition Marvell SATA3.

RAID Mode is a superset of AHCI.

Just enable RAID mode and you will already enable ACHI features.
