Trying to setup a new WHS with AHCI enabled (as the NCQ would be very useful given how WHS manages files) but I can't for the life of me figure out how to do it. I've failed every possible way trying to install WHS with AHCI enabled - and finally gave up after reading here you can switch to AHCI post-install.
But how does one do that?
The board I'm using is based on the ICH9 chipset - so I've downloaded the latest Intel Matrix Storage Manager. When I try to install this, however, I receive the error:
This computer does not meet the minimum requirements for installing this software. Setup will exit.
I suspect this is because the AHCI is not enabled in the BIOS - so the Intel driver doesn't see any reason to install the software. But I can't enable the AHCI until I do install the software, because obviously then I can't boot the WHS.
