Does anyone here using this card who doesn't have an AHCI support on their bios? My order for this card is on its way with a Crucial M4 SSD. The problem is, my MB does not support AHCI. Is it going to be fine with this PCIe card? I'm going to install the OS on my SSD btw. So, will I still get the increase in performance without the AHCI mode?

Hi Kev,

Do you plan to use this card to primary boot your OS from? If you are, I do not believe this card is Bootable.

The card firmware will run the ASM1061 in AHCI mode, irrespective of your BIOS settings for the standard SATA ports.

The SY-PEX40039 has a boot-rom chip and is bootable.  

See here for test results with this card.
