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
