Thanks for the data about AHCI. Very helpful in case I want to boot XP, for I'd prefer Linux to use AHCI too.
ABout NTFS, I go every here and there to windows and run its native tool. I was using ntfsfix out of despair. New machine, great leap from the old one, and new O.S. I should have done one thing at a time.
