    Win xp still wont boot in achi mode after installing c600/79 chipset drivers. Under imthe ide section in Windows device manager the sata drivers show up but it still won't boot in achi mode.

    Its a intel Xeon E5 1650 v1. It works fine in sata mode on win 7 and win 10. With Windows xp however there are some issues with sata since generic sata drivers doesn't exist on win xp. Win xp works but only in ide mode.
