    last week i installed an intel 320 ssd in my mbp. i've seen postings in other places where people talking about enabling ahci in windows to achieve better performance of ssds. is this something that can be done without damaging the system and if there are any performance gains, are they substantial? thanks.

    Considering there's no BIOS to tweak on a MacBook Pro, I wouldn't worry about it.

    I tried this a while back with my Seagate Momentus XT, and it failed miserably. With AHCI enabled, I had problems with my laptop going into standby in Windows. Whenever it would resume, it would promptly bluescreen.

    From my experience, I would not try to do this.

    YMMV
