Sorry, poor choice of wording. I meant earlier versions of Windows don't
support achi *natively*. As your links suggest, you can sometimes find
that your manufacturer will provide a driver that lets you fake out
WinXP into being ok with your board's implementation of ahci (usually by
emulating SCSI), but it's not a universal solution.
it has a certain smooth-brained appeal
