I installed Windows XP on my IdeaPad Y530 with Windows Vista preinstalled. When I try to boot XP with AHCI enabled under SATA options in BIOS, it gets to the Microsoft Windows XP loading screen than my screen flashes a couple times and my system restarts. When I have IDE enabled instead of AHCI, I have no problems loading XP. However, whenever I try to load Vista with IDE enable, I get the same problem.
How can I get windows XP to work with AHCI enabled?
I have tried to install intel drivers in XP but during installation, it wants to replace files on my C drive (which is where Vista is located). XP is installed on a different partition (F).
Any ideas on what I can do?

skripatch, I'm not sure I understand when you say "use that driver in archive". Are you referring to the one you gave a link to above? The universal intel driver requires me to install the driver during XP install (which seems inevitable at this point). Is there any way to update the HDD controller without reinstalling XP?

peeJ1029, go to Device Manager in Windows and press "update driver" on HDD controller. After that always choose "I'll manually install driver, I have a disk" and point installer to unpacked driver from that archive in first post, if link is still working =)
You need SATA HBM/HEM controller if you're given a choice there.
