If it is activated all SATA ports are hot swappable. InfinitYn May 20, 2010 2:46:55 PM thanks for the answer!!! but which sata cable out of the 2 ones from case needs to be connected? thank you.

I was activating AHCI but still nothing!!! misry May 20, 2010 4:48:13 PM AHCI *before* you load Windows. If you have already loaded Windows and then turn on AHCI you'll need to reload Windows as if it had not been done yet. InfinitYn May 20, 2010 6:08:59 PM I was modifying in Bios the option the I started windows but still not working but still not working !!! misry May 20, 2010 10:50:10 PM You need to completely re-install Windows. Not just re-start it. InfinitYn May 21, 2010 4:44:04 AM OK I will try that today. Thank you. misry May 21, 2010 1:01:45 PM Be aware, you will need to use the F6 option during installation and have a pre-made floppy disk with the AHCI drivers on it that Windows will recognize.
