I call BS on both of these statements.

Back when I ran my SATA drives in IDE mode, heavy I/O would cause my high end system (at the time) coming to a grinding halt.

We're talking 3 hard drives and 1 dvd burner, extract from A->B, burn from C->DVD, and then getting less than 1X burning speed.

In particular, my reply on post #11.

I've successfully switched from IDE->AHCI on an XP and Vista installs using the instructions found here: HOWTO: enable AHCI mode after installing Windows - PC Perspective Forums
