Thanks,

OK and I have asked where the info for the drivers you need are coming from.
According to your PC Pitstop from post 5 and I checked the driver update tab. The only driver that shows anything is your Audio, Game Controller.

I'm guessing you are concerned that Pitstop didn't find & report that the drivers are needed.
I'm guessing since the OS is running in IDE mode Pitstop didn't see a need to report anything wrong. The IDE drivers are loaded and running fine.
What Pitstop doesn't realize is that I would like to change the BIOS from IDE to AHCI mode. When I boot in AHCI mode I get a BSOD. So Pitstop can't run and report
that the AHCI drivers are not installed.

Thanks,

No. This machine was manufactured/assembled by Lenovo
I added a partition that was originally installed on an IDE drive in another PC.

So in IDE mode everything works fine?

Check this page from Microsoft HERE
Mostly AHCI is used for hot Swapping and in a laptop in my opinion it is useless.

Thanks for the reply...

The page you quoted applies to Win7. I'm working on XP Pro.

Everything I have been able to find on this suggest Hot Swapping and Sata Raid.
Hot Swapping in a laptop is useless since you only have one hd anyway.
Sata Raid also would seem useless to me for the same reason.
In order to get it you would need to install intel matrix storage driver for XP.
