    Intel ICH10R Controller:ACHI Registry Listing omitted


    Hi, I don't know what happened, I was wanting to get AHCI working in Windows 8 but someone had suggested to change a Windows registry setting and I did so so now it is no longer listed.

    Long story short, I don't know how I can recover these settings without a backup. And I don't have one!!! :-|

    Here is the location:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\msahci\Start

    msahci is not listed in my registry, so is there a workaround?

    Thanks in Advance.

    Boot WinPE or any Live *IX DVD and manually edit the registry on your computer to add the registry key back. Done this a few times works well. -WS
