AHCI driver for Windows XP

I've recently bought a LENOVO IDEAPAD V460 59 - 044185 laptop. When I tried to install Win XP with AHCI enabled in the BIOS, it BSOD. But later I successfully installed it by disabling the mentioned feature & enabling Comaptibility mode in the BIOS. Now, can anybody give me the link of the AHCI driver for my OS/motherboard?  Just for information, my lappy uses a Phoneix BIOS.

Re: AHCI driver for Windows XP

Try Storage Management driver (AHCI) on THIS download page.


But, you must use a floppy disk and a usb floppy disk drive to install.


Read instructions carefully.


If you do not have them, just stick with Comaptibility mode, no big difference.

you can integrate AHCI drivers in winxp distr with n-lite app. So you wount have a BSOD when installing.
