AHCI Driver

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi all. I have the rig described in my profile. Initially I was running the Microsoft default 1.0 AHCI driver for my SATA controller. I had read that you needed that driver for TRIM to work with my Corsair Force 120GB SSD.

Recently I did a driver scan of my system (using Driver Detective) and it told me that I needed an update to my AHCI driver and that I should load the AMD SATA CONTROLLER driver.

I am not sure whether AMD's SATA controller driver is a proper replacement for the Microsoft AHCI driver.

Can anyone tell me what is needed and whether I should update my driver or not? With my current configuration I see an entry in Device Manager for each SATA port and then another entry for the AHCI driver. If I load the AMD driver Device Manager only shows one entry in the disk controller section after that. I am just not sure what I should be using.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks ............. Rob

AHCI driver from amd will allow trim support, I use it with my Callisto and Trim is enabled. I vote for update the driver.
