Is there a way to enable AHCI mode under Windows on a Macbook5,2 (white) on N-Force 730i chipset?
If you want to just say 'no', please put it in the comments instead. Thanks.

Advanced Host Controller Interface mode provides additional features of the SATA standard and can be implemented in BIOS on some motherboards to improve performance.

I assume you are talking about running Windows with Boot Camp. Is that correct? –  Wheat Williams Dec 30 '11 at 0:39
    
Helpful edit, @WheatWilliams. To the OP, why would you request that an answer be posted as a comment? –  Daniel Lawson Dec 30 '11 at 2:06

@Kinokijuf, participants here edit questions to make them more understandable. Your initial question was short on details and context, and could not be easily understood by other readers. I'm sorry if I inferred things incorrectly. Nobody around here considers me "evil". So please explain, are you using Boot Camp to run Windows on a MacBook, or not? If not, how are you doing it? What do you need to accomplish with AHCI mode? –  Wheat Williams Dec 30 '11 at 21:29

How did you go about installing Windows? People usually install Mac OS X and then use the Apple Boot Camp utility to partition the drive and start the Windows installation process. It also means that you are using the Apple hardware device drivers for Windows. That is pertinent to figuring out how to help you. So are you running Mac OS X and Windows in a dual-boot configuration on a partitioned hard drive, like we would expect, or do you mean that you are running Windows all by itself with no Mac OS X on the system? I've never heard of any one doing that. –  Wheat Williams Dec 30 '11 at 23:06
