AHCI is fully supported in Windows Vista and Windows 7. Older operating systems, such as Windows XP, require hardware-specific drivers to support AHCI.

Go to http://support.acer....s_download.aspx. Select "Notebook", then "Aspire", then "Aspire 4310", and finally either "Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition x32" or "Microsoft Windows XP Professional x32" depending on which version you have. The "AHCI - Intel SATA AHCI Driver" is what you need.

As far as getting it installed, see the following pages:

Advice to all who are considering upgrading to Windows 7 on their current PC! - FIRST check to see if it's compatible by going to the Microsoft Windows 7 Upgrade Advisor page:

It may avoid you being in the same predicament as the OP.
