Need instructions for manually installing Intel AHCI drivers on a Vista 64 Dell Studio XPS 8000 system. The Bios offers ATA or Raid only. Know that the drivers need to be running in order to boot into Raid mode.

I have all the necessary files in the Drivers directory, (but they are not 'installed' --
Windows does not show them in Device Mgr) and have switched the registry value on iastor from 4 to 0.

How do I get windows vista to now recognize AHCI and/or where do the driver files need to be copied to? (XP was much easier :) )

TIA
