    You are on the right track for sure.

    Did you make sure that you used the XP x64 version of the AHCI drivers? Also, what I like to do with slipstreaming AHCI drivers is to select all and input them as textmode, that way you make sure you won't miss the right one.

    Here is a link to the correct driver.

    Just an FYI, Windows XP doesn't have any type of SSD support, so your write performance will eventually degrade. Windows 7 is the first OS that officially supports SSD's (TRIM) while in AHCI mode.

    Either way, that is a killer SSD and XP x64 does have good overall performance, so have fun!
