It is for me. Running Windows 7 build 7077.
Interesting. This of course begs the question, which of the following would need to be done to EASILY enable AHCI on 2006-2008 models:
1. Just use the 2009 Boot Camp drivers.
2. Format the disk for Boot Camp in a 2009 model, then place in the intended machine.
3. Actually install Windows on the disk in a 2009 model, place the disk in the intended machine, and then install the drivers.
sorry to be ignorant but what is AHCI and what is it used for?
AHCI is a disk controller mode. The old Mac Pros used to run Legacy mode, which allowed for a maximum of 4 SATA devices and 1 PATA device, and the speeds were
less than optimal.
AHCI is what non-crappy setups use for maximum speed and happy fun times
also necessary to use SATA optical drives in Mac Pros.
