I have a Dell Latitude E6400 with XP Pro SP3 loaded. The laptop had the SATA Operation set to IRRT (Intel Rapid Restore Technology) by default and this is how the machine was set up. We have been having crashing behaviour (blue screen of death and random reboots) and suspect this may be the issue.
We would like to change the SATA Operation to be ATA or AHCI. When we go into the bios (version A17) and change it to either ATA or AHCI the system crashes on booting. Can the setting be switched on this XP machine? It would be very helpful if we did not have to rebuild it from scratch.
