Updating the ide drive

The system runs fine as it is setup but I would like to take advantage of the SATA AHCI controller.

Is there Micorsoft documentation or a KB article that explains why after you update the driver for the Intel chipset SATA controller to the Intel storage driver (AHCI) and restart your system, the drivers for the SATA HDD and the SATA optical drive appear to be reinstalled by Windows and you are prompted to restart the system.

Open the "IDE ATA / ATAPI Controllers" heading to reveal a list of the ATAPI devices used by the computer.

Double-click on the ATAPI device for which you wish to update a driver to open a hardware device properties window.

By using Google Drive, you agree to the Google Terms of Service.

Armed with that knowledge, you decide how much you want to spend.

(The SATA connector is often labeled “ SATA,” as well.) If you see a wide, flat ribbon cable (right), then your computer uses IDE drives. The higher the capacity, the more information a drive can store, which also raises the price.

Access or seek time measures the amount of time the drive takes to locate stored files, measured in milliseconds (ms).
