Hello, John!
Can't send pm to anyone, because have a low post count
I can test new bios on P5-BW, that was pulled from XL201 if it still needed.

Hello Stanislav. Great to hear from you!

I don't know how frequently John monitors this forum thread (I keep an eye on it), so I will also send this reply to you by 'PM' and also a copy to your previous email address, and I will copy John with both replies. Best regards, and ....


Cheers!
Robert.

Hi all, long time no sqwawk, been very busy with other hobbies and family stuff....

Right! Thats the pleasantries over

Down to business, I just installed the new bios 1.2 and went to enable ahci, did the registry mods to enable in Windows etc etc all to no avail.

I cannot get my machine to boot in ahci mode.... What am I missing?

Cheers,
Al.

Found it, it was the start key for atapi! Changed that to zero as well as the others and whppiedoo...... Although the 'Worthless Experience Index' has now dropped from 6.9 to 6.0 ???

Hello Al,

Long time indeed. Good to hear from you, and glad you found the additional registry change. You are correct, Windows Experience Index is "worthless" HA! Give Passmark Performance Test 8 a spin if you want some more reliable "before and after" upgrades feedback:

Al, be sure to post all questions and Beta test feedback in the Beta Test forum, rather than this thread (so that we can keep all of the relevant feedback in one place):

Cheers!
Robert.
PS. How's Sid?

Hi, all!
Robert and John, thanks for the reminder, I had forgotten about the existence of this small but cozy forum. In the near future, I will leave my comment about the test.

By the way, I was interested in new and no less ambitious project. We formed a group of enthusiasts, who take used computers as a gift, and after the cleaning and maintenance give them to needy children, is not uncommon in children's homes. Yesterday we had a kind of anniversary, 18 months of the project, we finally broke the mark the hundredth donated a computer and do not intend to stop there.

Best wishes!
Stanislav.
