Bios config: "ahci" or "standard ide" for a sata drive ?
I am about to install Slackware 11 and I am wondering what settings to use in the bios for my sata drive. I have three options: "standard ide", "raid" and "ahci". There is only one harddisk so I guessed raid is not the way to go, but I am at a loss about what to choose between "ahci" and "standard ide".
In the same category, the bios offers me two choices for the harddisk options "32-bit data transfers": "enabled" or "disabled". Guessing, I would want it to be enabled, but the person who sold me the computer changed the default enabled to disabled for some mysterious reason. Which is right ?
Motherboard: ASUS P5W with intel ICH7 chipset.
Harddisk: maxtor 300 gb.
Thanks in advance,
