Satellite P300D-10U - how to enable the AHCI controller in the Bios

I have toshiba satellite P300D-10U with windows vista 32-bit, disc ssd drive 2nd hard drive
and I can't do IT controller SATA AHCI in the bios.


What can I do?
install the new windows 7 32 / 64-bit and updated the bios for this maybe windows I can ON AHCI Controller in bios

This bios has the ability to run on AHCI?

Thanks for replying,
Thank you.

BIOS of the screen:

SSD of the screen

I changed the value to 0

I install ATi SATA2 RAID (pilot preinstallation)


To my knowledge, the Satellite P300 series BIOS doesn t contain the ability to switch the AHCI compatible mode.

I don t think that even after updating the BIOS such option would be available in the BIOS.

I see on the first screenshot of the BIOS, the SSD drive is connected to the second controller.
I recommend you connect the SSD to the first controller (instead of the HARD disk).
Maybe then you could get better performance.

Just for the note: portable computers with a graphics card ATI supports the AMD chipset, and in this case the ATI graphics card driver contains the SATA driver files.

However, I guess the HARD disk controller specification allows the use of better performance of SSD drive.

    Another point of view - I bought MS Windows XP Pro and haven´t you have a PC to install it on. Can I install this OS on my Satellite? Will it work? Where can I find the drivers for touchpoint etc etc... Normally, the Toshiba works with Windows ME and I can not use ITunes on ME... if XP would be great - what do you think?

    Hello Jürgen

    In my opinion, if you install the operating system on the unit you you use the recovery CD provided because it has been tested and it works without any problem. But if you want to install another system on your laptop, you can use the original Microsoft OS and all the necessary drivers, you can find the Toshiba site.> support & downloads

    The update of the BIOS and the important information (i.e. how to upgrade the BIOS) you will find also on the Knowledge Base Web site

    I tried the Fn + F8, but it says it all, this is the 'wireless communication is disabled. Please activate the wireless communication switch. There is no switch that I see. The device driver is enabled and active. I even tried to reinstall the driver. The user manual makes no reference to a process physical either pass.

    Hey Buddy,

    I Don t Satellite P750 in front of me, but the wireless network card is in the Device Manager?

    On Satellite P750, there is a tactile button between the screen and the keyboard to turn the WLAN function. The second button on the left (symbol of the antenna), you need to press to activate the WLAN.

    Also, check the BIOS. As I know most notebook contains an option for the WLAN that must be set to active.

  • Satellite P300D-136 - how to restore the system?


    I own a Toshiba Satellite P300D-136 with Windows 7 (64-bit) and I want to restore the system. I've tried the way by clicking on the value 0 or F8 at startup, but it does not :-(

    The HDDRestore Partition is available...

    Best regards


    As far as I know Satellite P300/P300D comes with Vista and not with Win7 for Win7 installation drive recovery HARD work not at all. You can install Vista, maybe, but certainly not Win7.

    Because of this, I assume that you have installed your own version of Win7. Can you confirm this?

    Is that HARD drive recovery facility (F8 > fix my computer) works with the installation of recovery only (out of the box).

    Your wireless network card is recognized correctly in the Device Manager, or you may notice a yellow exclamation?
    Her check first because otherwise, you can get the WLAN to work.

    In addition, you can activate WLAN with the material on the laptop switch which must be set on and the FN + F8 key combination.
    Check it!

    After this Free Config should find your WLAN router if you are in the range of that.
