Succeeded in installing XP in AHCI mode after wasting time trying to convert an IDE installation.

AHCI mode is also used by SSDs to run wear-leveling TRIM software to extend SSD life.

This is the sequence to install XP onto a SSD running in AHCI mode.
  • Create a slipstream installation disc (Video Below).
  • Turn on AHCI in the BIOS.
  • Next install onto a Hard Drive (HDD).
  • Then clone HDD to SSD.
Note: I tried installing XP directly to the SSD, but it didn't work.

nLite - for Windows XP is free.

My AHCI drivers did come in an EXE file and used 7-Zip to extract them.

Btw, this computer build will run Win 10 with Win XP & Linux Mint on a separate SSD.
