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.
