Re: how to install AHCI driver on G560?

hi sayogs,

 

Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.

 

If you have Windows 7 installed in Compatible (IDE) Mode, try to:

 

1. Follow the guide below on how to set AHCI in Windows and reboot the PC.

 

AHCI : Enable in Windows 7 after OS install

 

2. When the PC reboots, boot into the BIOS (by pressing F2 on the Lenovo startup screen) and set the SATA Controller mode from Compatible to AHCI). When finished, press F10 to save and exit and observe.

Let me know how it goes.

hi sayogs,

 

After making changes to the BIOS (Step 2 above), can you try and boot into Safe Mode and observe (Windows should be able to boot from this mode).

 

When the machine boots into Safe Mode, check if the SATA Controller is implemented then reboot the PC to normal mode to make the changes permanent.
