AHCI suport for BSD OS

[ Edited ]

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to install FreeBSD or PC-BSD on my laptop but it hangs at the boot stage. The problem is the HDD controller mode in the bios. By default, windows start with AHCI setting but FreeBSD won't. If you try to change it to IDE mode, both of the BSD OS start except Windows 7.

I have already posted my problem in the FreeBSD forum but they didn't found the solution. Here


So is it possible to solve this issue?


Nota: I have an EliteBook 5840w laptop running under windows 7 64 bit and FreeBSD does fully support AHCI mode.


Thank you.
