Win7 native AHCI vs Intel AHCI -
| posts: 15
Just installed my first SSD Drive, Crucial M4 128GB, so far so good!
I decided to do a fresh install of Win7 64bit instead of migrating from my old drive, so Windows should already have enabled it's native AHCI drivers during installation.
My question is; my motherboard has onboard AHCI controllers for both Jmicron and Intel, should I just run with the native Win7 drivers, or install drivers for either Jmicron/Intel, and if so which one? (What are the differences?)
EDIT: Found out that the jmicron controller only controls eSata and one lonely sata port which I do not use, so I disabled the jmicron. The question remains though, Native Win7 drivers or Intel Driver for AHCI, does it really matter?
