Yes, with 20220318, old and new driver are working as expected.

Ok, good. That's a relief Grin

I should be able to provide one more version of the driver with possibly shortened start up time.

Here is another version for tests:

https://axrt.org/development/ahci.device-0.9b.i386-aros.zip

*) recognizes hard disks bigger than 8GB
*) improved boot times by more than 50%
*) uses 60 MB of RAM less

Unless problems are found, this will be the "final" version for this IBOTM

I have tested this version of your AHCI-driver and found no problems.

is SATA support

Yes, CDROMs connected to SATA should work. There is code to support them as well as I tested them in VirtualBox. Note however this bug is about wrong disk size reported by ahci.device, so I haven't tested CDROM extensivelly.

I tried but the cd-rom doesn't work maybe because the achi driver is out of date, I'm not referring to this one you released but the one that is in the latest build

if I load the system from the stick with the new device it boots regularly but hdtoolbox does not detect the HDs

Well if no of your devices are detected (neither CDROM nor HDDs) that this is a different problem altogether. Have ahci.device ever worked on this hardware? Can you give me PCI vendor ID and product ID of your hardware's AHCI chipset?

From PCIToolInfo.txt it looks like your SATA devices are working in IDE mode not in AHCI mode. ahci.device will only recognize drives if SATA is working in AHCI mode.

@All

The codes are now pushed to the repository which closes this month's IBOTM! See you in a few days for voting for April's IBOTM. This time, there will be a nice surprise...

i set the sata achi option in the bios and boot the system from the usb key but it does not detect the hd if i want to do an installation

All I can say is that according to PCITool your chip is in IDE mode. Class = 0x01 means STORAGE, Subclass = 0x01 means IDE. Also ProductID 0x3a20 resolves to non-AHCI mode in Intel ICH10 documentation.

I started a Pendrive with AROS One + the new ahci.device on a PC where Win10 is installed on a 230 GB SSD HD.

HDtoolbox correctly detects the size of the 230 GB Hardisk, but "Wipe Disk" on InstallAROS does not allow to initialize the partition dedicated to AROS, in some cases when you run InstallAROS it crashes the system.

I also tried with the old ahci.device, "Wipe Disk" does not recognize HD SSDs, am I wrong or are HD SSDs not supported yet?

Please try using base 20220318-1 system with 0.9b ahci.device. @Studenteer reported earlier in this thread that something in AROS One prevents ahci.device from working.

Also it is possible that there is a 2TB total disk size limit. I seem to recall reading somewhere about it, so if possible try with disk smaller than 2TB.

Ok I do some test with 20220318-1 + 0.9b ahci.device, sorry, anyway my SSD Disk is only 230 GB (I misspelled above)
