    Default AHCI support for BSD OS

    Hello everyone,

    I'm trying to install FreeBSD or PC-BSD on my laptop but it hangs at the boot stage. The problem is the HDD controller mode in the bios. By default, windows start with AHCI setting but FreeBSD won't. If you try to change it to IDE mode, both of the BSD OS start except Windows 7.

    I have already posted my problem in the FreeBSD forum but they didn't found the solution. Problem with the installation - The FreeBSD Forums

    So is it possible to solve this issue?

    Nota: The BSD OS does fully support AHCI.

    Thank you guys

    Sounds like there is ether there is a problem in BSD's implantation or your laptops's, what brand is it. BSD can be very finicky when it comes to standards and support.

    If you dont mind working in terminal can you check to see if the config file /boot/loader.conf has the line ahci_load="YES" in it and that it is indeed set to YES.
